We live in a visual world as the recent and rapid success of Pinterest has demonstrated. Now three Geeks (their term, not mine) have come up with something after a coffee-fueled frenzy that has all the juice of a good interactive infographic.
Zuckerberg’s Law states that the amount of online data about an individual doubles each year so they gathered their own data and tried to make sense of it all. They found the data disjointed and overwhelming: career history here, tweets there, check-in data everywhere. Boring and incoherent is not a good look!
Enter Vizify, a network acknowledging the fact that you are more than the sum of your parts. Vizify creates one definitive, multidimensional, graphical biography.
While it is early days and the network is by invitation only, getting an invite proved really easy. The result of my ‘dabbling’ can be see here.
The other thing that impressed me about Vizify was its simplicity. It is a simple matter to change the privacy settings, drag and drop content, colour your world or add new services.
So if like me you like the idea of an interactive infographic for prospective employers and clients that presents your online biography in an exciting way, then Vizify is for you.
And while we are talking about new social media tools try out Skylines, which organises the world’s real-time photos. The platform indexes over 5 million photos a day sent through services Twitter, Instagram, Twitpic, Yfrog and Lockerz.
