Networking used to mean expensive, time-consuming traveling half way across the country to meet people at an annual conference.  Now we have networking and collaboration via LinkedIn, with professional profiles on display, as well as Instagram and Facebook, podcasts, blogs, and real time audio/video chats, all from the convenience of our couch.
