The word “network” is defined as an “interconnected system” – a “lace” or “grid.” It used to be that when people talked about “networking” they meant a gathering of people – to get jobs, to offer referrals or to share ideas about certain topics or areas of interest common to a certain group of people.
Today, “networking” is primarily seen as an activity that occurs on the Internet. While there continue to remain ways to meet and greet in our actual lives, more and more is happening online.
