  2. This list is exactly what I’ve been looking for. Some of them I’ve already signed up with, but I’m glad to find out about the rest. Thanks.. :)

  3. Hi thanks for sharing the list. I would like to add two more business networking sites.

    Wubb.com – Your Complete Social Business Networking Hub and Skillpages.com

    I’ve gone one Networking Net dot Net – http://www.networkingnet.net and I’ve found it very useful for searching for business networking events. I live in Southern California and there are so many events but no one place to find them all. These guys only promote business events, which is exactly what I need.

  5. Thanks for a nice list, here is another good one: http://www.ibcontact.com

  6. who is the founder of this website??

  7. There is a new player on the market:
    beIN.com ‘The Working Playground’
    beIN.com connects people and businesses trough their skills, talents and interests. You can chat to experts and be inspired by success stories or share your own.
    In my opinion beIN can be next big thing!
    Regards
    Mike

  8. I have to add one more website to the list
    Wubb – Your Business Networking Hub , http://www.wubb.com is the most happening social networking platform.

  9. I hope you don’t mind me mentioning a new informal social network aimed at homeworkers – http://www.vivalution.com

    They need you! Join for free and join a work team, the free lottery syndicate or hang out in the recreation area. Oh, and there’s lots more there too :-)

  10. you forgot to mention ApnaCircle.com

    its a giant in India and present all over the world.

  11. There is another business site you should include. It’s call BizBuilt.

    They use the concept of a business card but it’s not like a paper one.

    You exchange your card with your network and connect like on a social site but the give you complete privacy control.

    The card has five tabs, one for your card image, one for contact info, one for files (selectively store and share files like drop box), a microsite (upload and link images together), and spheres (let connections see each other).

    Another cool feature is that you can make multiple cards from one account.

  12. Thanks Agnis for taking the time to make this list.

    As the Director of Community at Biznik, I am there to make sure you have an awesome experience networking with your peers.

    It’s free to create an account – drop me a tweet @mj_lawrence and let me know you created an account.

    Include #wpwidgets in the tweet and I’ll give you a complimentary ProVIP (top tier membership level) for 60 days, giving you an all access pass to the site and all its features.

  13. I now use http://www.Phinkit.com to create all my business social media content. It puts much more focus on personality, value and creativity instead of collecting numbers of people. It’s Facebook’s more sophisticated cousin!

  14. I’m really thank you for these websites
    this is most useful sited for me thanks very much

  15. This sites are more useful for professional. If we like bloggers to submit our own account interacting with the community over there it will be an awesome SMO for our blog. While thanks for that list of useful blog urls.

  16. May I add another new website to the list? The name is Ask a peer http://askapeer.com.

    Ask a peer is a live video platform that helps you build new professional relationships through exclusive online events.

    Our next event on Sept 11 will feature former McKinsey alumni helping with case interview preparation

  17. Another new site that needs mention is http://www.networklarge.com, it’s a “get back to basics” referral networking site.

    Stop with the socializing and get to generating real leads from a team of referral partners.

    Be sure to check it out!
