Vizify iconIf you keep active on the Internet and social networking sites, you no doubt need a place to showcase what you do and where you have created content. There are several awesome personal profile sites already in existence, but there’s always room for a few more. Vizify is the newest addition to this genre. It takes a unique, more graphical and interactive approach to sharing your online content (tweets, photos, work, history, etc.)

When I first viewed a Vizify bio page, I couldn’t wait to set up my own. Vizify sent me an invitation code, plus 400 more to share with MUO readers (use makeuseof when you sign-up.)

How It Works

When you sign up with Vizify and provide it access to your Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, and/or Foursquare accounts, it analyzes and uses data from those accounts to provide bits of information about you presented in an interactive visual orientation.

If you have filled out all your significant career information about LinkedIn, Vizify will use that data to create a very impressive online resumé, as shown below.

And fortunately, if there is information on your LinkedIn page that you would rather not show up on Vizify profile, you can edit that information right from within the site.

Vizify starts you off with several individual profile pages based on the sources you provide: e.g., a home menu page, a quote page from content you’ve posted on your Twitter or Facebook stream, a similar Words page with a graphical collections of your social networking content and topics you write and link mostly about, as well as graphical information about your educational and career background.

 

As you might expect, you can customize, rearrange, hide, and add new pages in your Vizify profile. You can also customize the color.

The visual orientation of Vizify allows visitors to your page to learn increasingly more about you without being weighted down with lots of text. You can provide visitors to your page a single place to learn about you, as well links to other sites you curate or share content on. And because Vizify mines the sources you provide it, you’re not stuck figuring what you should include your profile. Instead, you just take out what you don’t want.

You can share a link to your Vizify page on Twitter, Google+, Facebook, Pinterest, Tumblr, or through direct email. You of course will want to carefully go through your pages and edit them before sharing.

No doubt there will be more features added to Vizify, including default services other than Twitter, Facebook, and Foursquare. I would like to add one or more direct RSS feeds to my page, a few selected videos (one of which I could talk directly to visitors of my page), and a direct contact page, which I’m surprised is not there.

Vizify was co-founded by Todd Silvertein, Jeff Cutler-Stamm, and Eli Tucker, and launched on July 26 with $1.4 million seed money from the Alum of both TechStars (Seattle) and the Portland Seed Fund. It presently has seven full-time employees.

If you get a hold of any invitation codes, let us know what you think of Vizify. And for similar nameplate or profile sites, check out this reviews:

    Thanks so much for sharing! Fun tool and lots of great, free functionality. Looking forward to seeing if they include video options soon.

    I love the way it loads my bio on my iPad. This will be a fun way to share a little more about myself with prospects. :)

    Note to readers, the invite could should be: makeuseof. One of our editors should correct the mistake soon. Thanks again to Sergio for pointing it out.

      Thanks, Sergio, I'll see if I can get my editor to correct that.
