To keep pace with the theme from the last post, one way to improve your visibility and hopefully positive message on the Web is by creating profiles on various social sites. Some of those sites, which I tend to highlight here in the Studio, are known as “nameplate” sites – places where you can create a page or two about yourself, often by pulling in content you create on other more popular social sites. You can collect your Web efforts and show them off in one place. Some tend more to the visual web site style, while others feel more like online resume sites. Nameplate sites mentioned here in the past include Flavors.me, Do.id, Zerply, About.me, and a few others I can’t remember off the top of my head right now.
Is there room for one more? Of course there is! The more, the merrier. Vizify is the new kid on the block and it manages to differentiate itself from the others by employing a very visually appealing style – culling the key information and presenting it in a bubble-based timeline. Vizify is nice because you don’t need to manually load up information – you simply connect Vizify to your existing sites like LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare, and it smartly pulls all the key date into the application for you. Once connected, you can then tailor the page by culling information you don’t want and keeping what you do.
Vizify is accessible now in public beta form and I think it is worth the five minutes to play around with it and create a profile. Check out mine below, which you can see on the web here.
