Online networking enables you to network no matter where you are in the world. You can sign in from your home, office, local library, on your computer, smartphone, or tablet. The chats are text-based allowing you to make connections, exchange contact information, and end the hour with several new connections you didn't have before.

According to Entrepreneur, here are 7 networking tips to make the most out of your engagement with peers.

  1. Resist the urge to arrive late.
  2. Ask easy questions.
  3. Ditch the sales pitch.
  4. Share your passion.
  5. Smile.
  6. Don’t hijack the conversation.
  7. Remember to follow up.
