In the world of social media, you tend to meet and network more online than you do in person. There is nothing wrong with that, you just need to make sure you are doing it properly.
A great way to network is by being in Facebook Groups. One thing I do is look at the members in the group and see if there is anyone else in my area, Pittsburgh, PA. With Facebook’s continuous updates, it is now easier than ever to find people in your local area. Here is how:
Go to the group and when you first have the page loaded you will see the three little dots next to the blue add button. Click on the three little dots.
Once you click on the three dots, it will bring you to all the members. You want to scroll down to the section that says “Members Living In ____________”. Once you find the section, add everyone in the section. When they add you back, immediately send them a message introducing yourself.
