Socializing the old-fashioned way, by meeting people offline, still works really well...

Events are organized specific to the topic/sport/business/hobby etc. So, they might discuss about the specific subject, however, if you can connect with others on the basis of a particular subject, then the relationship can be scaled easily to also help out with networking for jobs within their own organization or others that they know of.
