Join a group
One of the coolest (and oldest) forms of online social networking is the use of groups (otherwise known as “newgroups“). Yahoo and Google both host an incredibly wide array of groups on just about any topic.
For example: If you are in Nashville and seeking employment, but you want to network, rather than simply posting your resume to every career site, check out the: Nashville Career Transition Group.
I just came across the Nashville Podcasters Group, who happen to have a scheduled meeting coming up. If you wish to join, be sure to let them know you’re coming.
The Nashville Podcasters Group will be having our next meeting at Edgehill Studios Cafe When: Saturday, February 3rd, 2007 – (4 – 5:30 pm) Where: Edgehill Studios Cafe – 1201 Villa Place, Nashville, TN 37212 (12th and Edgehill) Phone: 615-301-8539 Bring your laptop – they have FREE wireless hookup.
I suggest you hop on Google Groups or Yahoo Groups and search for anything that interests you. You will need to sign up for a Yahoo or Gmail account, but that’s free. You also should use an alternate email address for groups since you’ll be getting daily/weekly updates on new messages posted and/or replies to your posts. This all depends on how you set it up when you register to join the group.
