UK-based MeettheBoss focuses narrowly on senior executives across allvertical industries. It offers secure videoconferencing, IM, e-mail and SMSbetween members. Its 'SmartWords' feature tracks the user on the site and,based on keywords and topics, provides content of special interest to thatmember. According to The New York Times, it zealously guards users' identityand specifically screens out salespeople, recruiters, vendors, consultants andjournalists; confirmation of registration requests takes about an hour. Thesite features weekly video interviews as well as discussion groups and Q&Aswith industry leaders by subscription. The site is very rich-media; in fact, itruns a browser check to make sure your system is ready to handle all the bellsand whistles before you begin the registration process.

It may seem that Facebook, LinkedIn and Twitter get all the media love when it comes to social networking, but there is a wealth of sites out there to link business people with other like-minded folks. Most appeal to a niche of users, so you’re sure to find one for your particular need. As with all social-networking sites, the value comes from who else participates on the site and how actively. Most of the sites are free, but many charge for premium services (and many make it annoyingly difficult to find out the cost until you sign up!).
