    1. In the past you had te go to people to talk to them, it was not posible to have big networks. Now it’s possible to have contact with people all over the world in just seconds! I’m still waiting for the teleport function on my ipad ;-)

    2. Do you know when the teleport function is comming out?:D

    3. Networking is totally made possible by the endless posibilities of this time. Though that is obviously great, I do feel there is a big downside. The bigger the networks get, the less personal and less in depth they tend to be. I truly believe all people should be searching for some middleground of networking. Both ‘big’ and personal. Quite a hard thing to do, but those networks will truly be the ones that stand out!

    5. Good point made, though not sure why the last guy copied the entire reply?
      Do agree on the personal networking and large networking statement totally.

    6. First of…Nice infographic! Yes the bigger it get’s the harder it gets. But when a company wants to use networks for their work i thing they need to put more people on that job so it can still stay personal.
