Men are suddenly nomadic gatherers of knowledge, nomadic as never before, informed as never before, free from fragmentary specialization as never before - but also involved in the total social process as never before, since with electricity we extend our central nervous system globally, instantly interrelating every human experience." --- Marshall Mc Luhan, in As the internet becomes the primary source of information and public communication, we should begin moving some of our legacy products online.
We must begin writing and publishing our products with embedded links to other content, pictures, and videos to meet the expectations of our online audience (think i Pad and Kindle friendly).
This way you can legitimately get yourself an invite to a house party or something else and that they gives you the opportunity to speak to her at least enough that you can legitimately get away with adding her on Facebook.
From there it's just a matter of sending lots of pokes or striking up lots of conversations via wall post to the point where you practically have to meet up. This method is a little more subtle than just messaging them out of the blue and saying you fancy them which a) suggests you've messaged twenty other people (and thus are a bit of a creep) and b) spent ages looking through profiles (and thus don't have a lot better to do).
When there's a change in your friend's status, you're sent an email alert.
The service doesn't log in as you - it simply sends out a bot to grab the status info from the profile pages.
Social networking sites like Facebook and My Space have countless benefits allowing us to network with new business partners and to keep in touch with old friends.
However they also have another use which is undoubtedly dating and these social networking sites create a lot of great opportunities to meet single girls and to communicate with them in a non-threatening manner.
On a similar note, newly-launched Stalkerati lets you search for a person's name across multiple services - social networks, blogs and image search.
This isn't feeding the My Space beast - it's more like leeching off it.
Again it's a good move to approach those with whom you have mutual acquaintances as this way you can say 'I noticed you picture on John/Jerry/Jessica's Facebook page and wanted to get in touch' which makes it appear less like you spend your time browsing girls.
Mention that you don't 'normally' do this or that it's your first and you'll make them feel special and flattered rather than concerned about their privacy settings.
Lastly try to involve something it says about them on their information.
