Make your business contacts a more social affair
Touted as the future of social networking apps, Hashable has all the familiar aspects of successful social networks, and seems to have brought them together in one place.
The app allows you to keep track of the business connections you make, and how you made them, keeping a log of your relationships. This is done by ‘hashing’ someone when you make contact with them.
The app is very user-friendly, given that it sticks with the home screen layout we’re used to seeing from Facebook, among others, and this allows for confident navigation from the first time you open it.
As you make connections, it becomes more and more like a hybrid of LinkedIn, Facebook and Twitter, as you can see what your connections have been up to, set reminders for meetings, and create an Inner Circle of your best contacts. It serves a vital business function by keeping you connected.
There is also the inclusion of a link with Foursquare, allowing you to tag the location of your meetings, and whether it was business, casual or a chance meeting.
Hashable also integrates your phone’s contact book and allows you to exchange virtual business cards with your connections, making this the perfect fast-paced networking app for the busy worker.
Hashable looks good, is easy to use, and represents a great way of making new contacts and, crucially, keeping them.
