With over 120 million members (as of 8/4/2011) and a new-member sign-up rate of two per second, LinkedIn is the undisputed leader of the “professional” social-networking scene. Still, some people have a problem with LinkedIn’s conservative design scheme. They want something that represents the excitement and passion that comes from loving what you do.
A number of web apps have cropped up to satisfy these more design-oriented folks (see our roundup of six of them), and each creates a stylish personal-splash page that you can attach to your email signature, print on your business card, or whatever.
Zerply, a new web app that launched last month, is both the same as these “personal-splash page” apps and different from them. Let’s find out how.
Most of us have a social networking account from a site such as Twitter or Facebook. For individuals, this gives us a great way of networking with interesting people interesting people. For businesses, it allows customers to really engage in a more personal level.
However, sometimes we want more from our face online. We might want to write more, and be sign in a tailored light. That’s why so many people have websites and the like, which provide an online face to yourself that’s been customised to how you want it to look and feel like. If you don’t have the time, effort or money to launch a fully-fledged website about yourself (or maybe you’re just not that interesting), these services allow you to create a quick ‘n’ easy profile page.
