Social Networking Vs. Traditional In-Person Networking

In conducting a job search, is using social networking different than traditional in-person networking?

Social networking is not unlike traditional networking, it just uses a different medium, the computer, as the core form of communication.  In many cases, it often mimics in-person networking. For example, would you do the following with face-to-face relationships:

-Assume friendship without properly introducing yourself? -Consistently talk about yourself without regard for those around you?
-Randomly approach a friend or colleague you barely know and simply ask for favors?

Key tip: if you wouldn't do it in person, don't do it over the computer.
