Vizify comes out of beta to visually showcase your qualifications and your quirks

Inno­va­tion-savvy social media man­agers and com­mu­ni­ty man­agers have a new and ris­ing force to reck­on with in the shape of Viz­ify, the visu­al iden­ti­ty plat­form from Port­land which has just come out of beta and appears to be going from strength to strength.

Deliv­ered into the world from the TechStars’s accel­er­a­tor just two years ago, this fast-grow­ing baby can now claim brag­ging rights over a new­ly designed mobile expe­ri­ence, a part­ner­ship with Twit­ter and a quar­ter of a mil­lion users. But what, the curi­ous social media man­ag­er might be ask­ing, does Viz­ify do?

How to pull your dis­persed social pres­ence into a snazzy dig­i­tal port­fo­lio in one easy step

Essen­tial­ly, it pro­vides a new slant on the resume, col­lat­ing a user’s per­son­al data from its scat­tered and frag­ment­ed exis­tence on social net­works, pro­files and web­sites and tidy­ing it up into a sin­gle, inte­grat­ed visu­al pro­file. Users get their own per­son­al web­sites, pop­u­lat­ed with data sucked up from their Face­book, Foursquare, Twit­ter and LinkedIn accounts, where­upon it’s all deft­ly orga­nized into a neat dig­i­tal port­fo­lio that visu­al­ly show­cas­es any­thing from per­son­al eccen­tric­i­ties to inter­ests to per­son­al achievements.

To cel­e­brate com­ing out of beta, Viz­ify is adding a new fea­ture – bite-sized, eas­i­ly cus­tomiz­able per­son­al info­graph­ics called “Viz­cards” that can be pub­lished on a user’s Viz­ify pro­file or on a pre­ferred social net­work. Users want­i­ng to use the new fea­tures sim­ply need to select a top­ic of inter­est from Vizify’s sub­ject library and fol­low a few easy steps to cre­ate a sin­gle graph­ic that can be pub­lished on a range of social media channels.

A visu­al show­case for qual­i­fi­ca­tion and quirks

Accord­ing to startup’s CEO, Todd Sil­ver­stein, Viziy appeals to vet­er­an social media users and social media novices alike, giv­ing them an easy means of show­ing what mat­ters to them and makes them tick.  He said:

“We think the lines between your pro­fes­sion­al and per­son­al iden­ti­ty online are blur­ring. For instance, our research with hir­ing man­agers told us that their biggest pain point was find­ing a cul­tur­al fit. Our viz­card prompts are designed to address that; they show­case your achieve­ments, but also your inter­ests, and quirks.”

Now that’s the kind of new idea to keep the inno­va­tion-hun­gry social media man­ag­er bright-eyed and bushy-tailed.
