    If it was elixir rather than elixio it would be more appropriate for you to join.

    It's by invite only, also of note it's a gated online community.

    Maybe you should have joined them, they're exclusive with around 80.000 members worldwide.

    Have they mentioned any reason why they wanted you to become a member? Referral from someone?

    Could be.... but Im not sure. To be honest, I was getting these invites from folks I dont know... never heard of. Most invites came from (supposedly) women in their late 20s and 30s..... it didnt come across in the right way. I was probably wrong, but my first impression was some sort of Russian VIP Escort service thing....

    :eek:

    Guess what... turns out I did sign up after all....... :eek:

    But I forgot I signed up..... went on the site the other day and figured I had opened an account in March 2008.......

    Needless to say, I haven't been very active.... :rolleyes:

    Elixio is also a social network similar to Google+, and Asmallworld.
    Elixio membership requires an invitation from an existing member.

    I have to say that I cant seem to get what goes on over on Elixio.... been monitoring the site everyday for the last weeks and until now I have to conclude its pretty much a waste of time...... or maybe there is something Im not getting...?

  14. Elixio is a gated online community that aims to keep the MySpace and Facebook rabble on the other side of the fence. So what's the compelling reason to join? Well, because it's a community of less than 14,000 mostly business professionals.

    It seems to me (every client I've spoken with & my own experience), that social networking sites seem to benefit a very few that join, to most it is not a real benefit to belong.

    Most folks I know are too busy to take a cold call/unknown email/message & rely primarily on referrals from co-workers or peers in their industry if they have a business issue that needs addressing from a vendor.
