February 14th, 2011 Comments off

Let’s face it.  Business cards are out of style.  People are no longer buying fancy business cards and handing them out for people to put in their rolodex.  Come on, it’s 2011 people, it’s time for a better way to track your business and social relationships in a more efficient and beneficial way.  Hashable is the answer.  These days most people carry around smart phones that have the latest technology.  Hashable uses that technology to track and manage each and every one of your relationships.

Here’s what Michael Yavonditte, CEO, had to say about it. “Hashable is a mobile-first service that allows you to track relationships. It’s similar to Foursquare in a lot of ways. As Foursquare is to location, Hashable is to people.  So when you meet a person, you can say, ‘I’ve run into this person, I’ve met this person, I’ve just had a meeting with this person’.  It runs the gamut to breakfast, lunch, dinner, drinks, coffee. Anything that a white-collar professional might do with another person, Hashable gives you a chance to log that event.”

It also allows you to put a person’s information in the system and it will give you a list of other people who have had interactions with that person. It is a great networking tool that can  be utilized to establish and build existing relationships.  Hashable also allows the user the ability to go back through time and see every meeting and encounter you have ever had.

So instead of thumbing through your old rolodex or spending money on fancy business cards to try and impress your colleagues, grab your smart phone and give Hashable a try.  Not only will it save you space in your wallet and on your desk, but it will also save you the time and effort.  Heck, maybe even help you win a good, heated argument among friends about a past meeting.  So go to your App store and check it out!  Don’t forget to let us know what you think in the comments!
