This is a networking platform. I’ve proved my credentials. I’ve shared my interest in creating further exposure for this network through various avenues, such as Forbes publications. It was advertised that there would be networking opportunities at the convention I was invited to, repeatedly, and subsequently, I attended (with great expectation). I approached the booth which was advertised as one where I would find the people I’ve connected with here. I was immensely surprised by the severe lack of respect and recognition I received. You all acted like you had no idea who I am…
I don’t appreciate the fact that no meaningful conversation occurred between the people who are connected within this network.
I even saw the CEO of this network in passing, shaked his hand (hoping for meaningful conversation) and he simply (barely, and seemingly without interest), partially acknowledged me, and went on his way to wherever he was headed. No conversation was had. He clearly had more important things which he was more interested in (beyond furthering his relationship with me).
At this time, I am no longer interested in featuring this network within my Forbes interview/publication.
Networking through the internet, is merely a minute component of such an intricate endeavor. You can be ‘cool’ on the internet - but if you cannot connect in person, this whole thing will fail, inevitably.
TL;DR; I am extremely disappointed with GNET; a as whole. No one even introduced their selves with their full name. I could barely figure out who you all were.
