Are business cards a necessity for business networking?

At a recent networking lunch one of the other people on our table apologised for forgetting their business cards and promised to send everyone their contact details afterwards. They did this thereby demonstrating an important part of networking follow up - doing what you promise you will do.

I know some people who deliberately have no business cards and always make a point of following up after receiving cards. This generally provokes a reaction in the people they meet. Some people think their approach is good and different. Others hate it and feel they are not really participating in the right way.

What do you think?

Good Networking!
