Hanafi Libman, an associate broker with Coldwell Banker Bain in Seattle, stumbled across social networking Web sites like most people do–through someone he knew who was already involved in one. After mulling around on Tribe.net, a networking Web site where users mix business and fun, he joined a discussion group for real estate referrals and ended up creating his own group, or “tribe,” for Seattle real estate.

Tribe.net hasn’t resulted in any business referrals for Libman. At least not yet.
