Default Met 80 new people to network with today

I have a goal to introduce myself to 5 people every day and I had a few hours with "nothing" to do (at least nothing I really wanted to do...lol) so I logged on facebook and decided I wanted to meet some new people.

The best way to meet new people is to find a group that you have something in common with. So I decided to type in my name, Louann. I've met a few people with the name Louann in my life, but it's not a very common name.

I randomly picked 5 people with the same name and sent them a message that said

"Hi this is Louann from NH. I am browing facebook and looking to meet some new people, so I typed in the name Louann and found you. I'd love to network and meet you."

Within minutes I had 2 people respond. One was from another Louann who happens to live in the next town! I was shocked, since I randomly picked her.

Then another Louann repsonded and invited me to join a facebook group they had started for people with the name Louann. SERIOUSLY!!! There are over 80 members who all share the same name! And now I am introducing myself to each and everyone.
