Social Passport brings real-time social networking to the masses.
The Social Passport uses reverse QR technology for social networking to securely encapsulate all of a userâ€™s social networking information (Facebook, Twitter, Foursquare, LinkedIn, etc) into a 2D barcode that the user can carry on a regular cell phone, smartphone, or even a piece of paper. A Social Passport user can share, tweet, check-in, and like all simultaneously in 3 seconds or less, with a wave of a hand that enables a store owner, an exhibitor, or an organization to leverage a user’s entire social network to market their business or event.
Merchants can set up Social Passport scanners using webcams, smartphones, or tablets by downloading the Social Passport merchant application to their device. These scanning devices can now be linked to a variety of social media functions.
For example, a shoe store owner wants to promote a new pair of Nike’s that he has just received a shipment of. He creates a sign for the shoe display that says “Like This? Scan Your Social Passport Here”. He can either put a webcam next to that display, or have a representative with a smartphone or tablet engage customers directly. When a customer scans their Passport at the display, a Facebook status update appears on their wall that says “John Doe likes the new Nike XXX” and a picture is displayed along with the merchant’s information and a link.
Social Passports can also be used as a reward card, voting tool, or a contest entry.
