New networking means getting to know people online to secure the meeting offline. Yup. It’s not online or offline — it’s both. It’s being real IRL as well as when you’re on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter…..And those people who can cut through the noise of likes, favorites, friends, and followers to make real connections are seamlessly moving between online and offline networking worlds, and thriving in the process.
