Social Network Website for Professionals

One of the most popular social networking sites in the Philippines is Social Networking has brought people together in an informal way. I remember when I used to be so addicted to Friendster because it’s nice to know who’s friends with who. I haven’t been visiting Friendster much but the last time I’ve visited, it has changed a lot. There are even classified ads postings, etc.

Now what I’d like to see is a Social Network site for professionals. Kinda like This site allows you to check out the professionals in your area. Looking for a doctor, hairstylist, or realtor in your area? allows you to connect with these individuals and you can even set up your own profile for free.

Sure, there are a lot of classified ad websites that allows you to post ads for free, Craigslist is one. But the problem with Craigslist is that you can’t connect with these professionals face to face. Say you’ve found yourself a dentist in Craiglist, you went to his office and found out that that he looks like an axe murderer, would you have chosen him in the first place if you’ve seen his picture?, allows you to see the profiles of these professionals so you can get an overview of what they’re like. If you’re offering a service, try it out, it’s free.
