In the beginning most people were very skeptical about such networks as a business tool, but now they are not only here to stay, but offer opportunities which can only be described as staggering.
The downside of most of these types of sites is the time it takes to learn how to use them, and so many of us don't bother - yet we are missing out on some of the biggest business opportunities we may ever have by not taking the time to understand this new way of leveraging our businesses.
