Nowadays there are numerous ways to meet people through the web. Just take a look at your phone and you will realize that you also have one of those apps for networking. I admit I am a social media addict and meet lots of people through the web. Staying in hostels makes it super easy to meet travellers and most of them have the same mindset and are looking to connect with people from all over the world. But in my case I meet a lot of people through apps like for example Instagram.
