Barter Learning
There should be a specified space / apps and interface for people to come across and trade their experiences against of others, thousands of online meet up applications and strangers meeting forums are currently being operated but no one has yet elaborated a mature, concise and attractive way to meet professionals, experts or low level know-how holders of a specific field so they can come online and meet to their age fellows or to other persons who have some similarities. For Example , if i am a graduate in business administration or make it more specified in human resource management and now i want to learn something about marketing techniques i must have a single mentor in respective field who can make me learned, against it, i would make learn others or the same person in relevance with my knowledge.
