“Millions of people all over the country are turning to the Internet — so they can get off the Internet.
Unlike Facebook and Twitter, which focus on keeping peoples’ social interactions online, a growing number of social-networking sites are helping users take online connections offline.
The idea is simple: make your initial meeting online. Then meet in person, in the real world.”
I found this article on USA Today by Natalie DiBlasio featuring entrepreneurs like Eddy Lu and Daishin Sugano whom created “Grubwithus.” Which is a social dining network that brings people together over tasting menus at restaurants. Even though its not free like facebook I think this is a very good idea to network and interact face to face using social media.
