that means sharing ideas with other industry professionals or creating relationships that may prove beneficial down the road.

One effective way to use this social network is through groups. Many groups offer engaging discussions and allow members to speak their minds on ideas and issues affecting in their industry. Finding the right groups to join is important in gaining value and connecting with your network.
