Everyone talks about social networking these days so it’s not surprising that there is a social network for business people. There are a few sites out there for this sort of thing but I have to say that the real winner has to be Linkedin.
With Linkedin the idea is really simple, upload your address book into the system (It’s a great backup tool as well) and it will automatically find people using Linkedin who you have an email for. Other functions include the ability to search for people – either by name or the company they work for and joining groups of business people who have the same interests (e.g web, technology, investments, regions etc)
The premium service costs money and allows you to see everyones details before requesting that they join your network but the basic free service is really good anyway – I don’t see the need for it at this time.
Overall we have to rate the site four stars – it’s easy to use, it’s useful and what’s more it’s free.
