Avakit is a cool new way to keep in touch, maybe soon to replace traditional business cards.
Why it’s relevant ——————— The nature of â€˜contact informationâ€™ is evolving fast, specially since people started using the Internet to communicate: A business card that used to simply have one phone number and one fax number should now ideally include a couple of email addresses, some online messenger IDâ€™s, some social application IDâ€™sâ€¦
Second, people change their contact info much more often that they used to, and an ideal contact card today should be dynamic, showing a personâ€™s most updated info at any given time.
Finally, with all these new contact details, a person might also want to give different information to different people: their work phone only to clients, their personal email only to their grandmother, their online IDâ€™s to their friends.
Avakit is a revolutionary way to do all these things, which might eventually replace the traditional business card concept.
Here’s how it works ————————- Avakit uses one contact detail as a lead to other contact details. This means that people trying to find you need to first insert a contact detail they already know about you. According to what they insert, you decide what info they will get. For example, a user can decide that old friends who know their old phone number will be allowed to find their current mobile number; while people who know their email will get their online IDâ€™s…
Avakit is a free web-based service.
