Chosing this card is all about reading the meta. Using Networking will save you 1 (or 2 if against SYNC: Everything, Everywhere).
If you are worried about tags, On the Lam and No One Home are just better, in faction. Even out of faction, you could go for No One Home or Deuces Wild, each cost 1 inf.
Thus, I see no real reason why you would slot Networking instead of any cards that would give you creds. Unless you are sure to face a lot of tag giving corp (usually NBN). In which case, it is a card that will save you 4 if you are hit by Hard-Hitting News. This is why it is all about reading the current meta.
If you are unsure of the current favorite corp or the current meta, just avoir Networking and slot 3 cards that will give you credits (or anything else that is useful).
The quote and graphic is great. The usefulness of this card is not. This should have been a neutral card.
