Techno Granny and Techno Teen talk about affiliation of Ning with Talk Shoe.

Social networking, was popularized by teens sharing information with their friends online on Web sites such as Facebook Inc., is now a new Web 2.0 horizon in the business world. Thanks to new social networks that enable professionals and executives in industries such as advertising and finance to rub virtual elbows with colleagues.

Millions of professionals already turn to broad-based networking sites like LinkedIn to swap job details and contact information, often for recruiting purposes. Business executives also have turned to online forums, email lists and message boards to sound off on information related to their industries. Forums on social networks are a great way to monitor your market, manipulate the market and increase your credibility by becoming a thought leader.

Take the leap, you don't know who you might meet and what business you may do. A business associate of mine just recently found a friend that she had not heard from for twenty-five years. It's a great way to expand your horizons.

I think it's important to have those opportunities and spaces for women networking. Many of the existing institutions and structures are de facto opportunities for men to connect with and support each other.
