Meeting people online can be a great thing to do. You can meet them for business, for friends, or even dating. MySpace and FaceBook are two social networking sites where people can meet others. Make Friends online and talk about anything at all. I have used these sites and others to meet business associates online, and visitors for my website and more.
Try to meet people that will do good to you. Not people that will ruin your life. For example, online dating services are out there for people to meet others that will help them in their life. I am not guaranteeing that you will meet the right people to do business with, but it is worth a try. You can even meet people in chatrooms and forums. These are just some of the resources i use to find business partners or clients.
Hope you can use some of these places to get some sales or meet friends. Good luck.
