If you like to network through social media settings like LinkedIn and Facebook, there are other newer sites that you might want to consider also. For example, it might be possible to get better access to your sales & marketing interests – even closer to your designated industry – by exploring a free membership in beBee.com.
I just joined and intend to check-out the viability of the features. It was recommended to me by an “astute friend” friend, so I have the feeling that it will be interesting and useful for my purposes. I am told that with beBee.com, it is easy to locate people like myself (…although my Wife contends that I am truly one of a kind…) with common interests and needs.
I am looking at a couple of other ones and will do brief reviews on them in due time. However, for the present, I will give beBee.com a little time to sink-in. It looks pretty straight-forward.
