For those in the know, September is the REAL new year. The drop in temperature serves as a sharp jolt to leave behind the dog days of summer as routine restructures our day-to-day lives. As the weather gets colder and people move indoors for get-togethers, conferences, and parties, our opportunities to meet new people change as well. The key is making the most of it.
How the Social Internet of Things is Revolutionizing Connectivity
Humans are both innovative and social beings leading to technological advances that are changing the way we interact. The desire to connect has inspired a global technological network linking people, data, and things.
Traditionally, our conception of cloud- or Internet-based social solutions has existed in the digital world. We send emails, conduct video calls, or share social media posts. But our collective need to use resources efficiently and information effectively has led to innovations that also link objects to this network. The inclusion of sensors and actuators are turning everyday devices into smart objects. This interaction of smart objects with people through the Internet is called the Internet of Things or IoT.
Around Me: The Next Generation of Social Networking
This month, we announced the launch of our latest feature, Around Me. Around Me is a phone-to-phone discovery feature that allows you to locate people in your proximity for spontaneous opportunities. Attend conferences and networking events with purpose by viewing the profiles of people you wish to meet and reading their Talk To Me About section to initiate useful interactions. In its first few weeks alone, Around Me enabled more then 450 proximity discoveries. Each day is an opportunity to meet people. Meet the right people.
Demonstrating the Power of Seamless Connectivity at TechTO
Our discovery feature Around Me is here, and we are thrilled to spread the word. The MeetVibe team headed down to the September TechTO MeetUp to rub shoulders with fellow tech enthusiasts and demonstrate the power of the Around Me feature. At networking events like these, finding the right people is vital for companies sourcing talent or individuals seeking creative partnerships. MeetVibe’s proximity technology combined with seamless scheduling and profile viewing allows users to make the most of their connections.
Madam Secretary: Make Yourself Available Even While Saving The World
When your job is helping the Secretary of State avert one global crisis after another, you do not have much time for sitting down and comparing schedules. In a season 2 episode of Madam Secretary, consistently busy press secretary Daisy discusses an app developed by her love interest, Oliver, that alerts them when there is a mutually available time slot in their calendars. Sound familiar?
Fill Out the Talk To Me About Section of Your MeetVibe Profile
We all want to meet people with common interests and goals. While it may be easy to make connections, it is not so easy to find like-minded individuals to build genuine connections. MeetVibe’s Talk To Me About section lets people know you are open to conversation and what you would like to talk about. Include a few lines about your desire to discuss your company, find an exciting new job opportunity, or even your love of world travel. Introducing yourself to new people is an important part of networking. Let others know your interests and start discovering like-minded people around you today.
If there are two things every member of the MeetVibe team loves they are technology and connectivity. We are focused on providing social connectivity that is instant and effortless, which is why we are busily working away on bringing MeetVibe to Android. Stay tuned by following us on Facebook and Twitter for updates.
