How Do You Stay in Touch?
Using the phone, in person meetings, mastermind groups, and real estate investment club meetings are all still valid ways of building and maintaining your network. You can add to that your Facebook or Twitter networks if you want to. Even better, join an on-line social network built just for what you are trying to do- invest in real estate.
One example is biggerpockets.com . It has a national footprint and over 40,000 members. I belong to it and I find good general information that I could also read in a book. It is very good for general information and, if you dig hard enough, you can make contacts with Utah investors.

Set-Up Your Own Social Network
If you have a niche market that you want to have a social network with, try setting it up using SocialSam.com as a platform. Starting at $7.95 per month (less than mailing list software) you can establish your own social network. (Yes, I am an affiliate and we will make some money if you join. You can make money as well off of your network.)
