Do you shake hands or hug someone when being introduced to them for the first time?

I ask because I ran into an old friend of mine this week, and she introduced me to a friend she had with her.  I went to shake this girl's hand but she went right in for a hug instead and said "oh my God, who shakes hands anymore?!", like she thought it was the silliest thing I could have done.

I don't know, I'm a pretty friendly person and I like hugs but I usually save it for the second or third time I hang out with someone.  Going in for a hug right off the bat seems a bit weird to me.  How about you guys?
