Social networking made simple

Someone the other day asked me what’s the best way to build up connections.

I had only this to say:—

Make friends with your parents’ friends, so you can inherit your parents’ valuable contacts that they’ve built up over possibly decades. If not, you end up reinventing the wheel all the time.

That’s the first and easiest way to ‘network.’

Optional for parents to be friends with their children’s pals — don’t invade your kids’ space but let them invade yours.

    Yes, a parent’s duty includes passing on your stuff, not trying to reverse inherit. It seldom works out.

    Only 63% complain on Facebook? I think the percent of complainers must be higher for bloggers!
