Qubrit.com – Revitalizing The Concept Of Business Cards

  • August 2, 2010

Qubrit.comYou know how it goes – you make a new contact at an expo or a tech show, he gives you his card with a wide smile on his face, and when you phone him two months later then he has either changed his number or moved on. It always happens like that, and you end up storing pieces of cardboard that are mostly obsolete before a couple of months are over.

That is the one inherent disadvantage that anything which is printed has got. And that is exactly what Qubrit sets out to tackle.

This service (which is currently in version 2.0) stands as a social network where you can exchange virtual business cards with everybody. The concept that lies at the heart of Qubrit is that each user centralizes all of his information and makes it instantly accessible to every other person who is also a part of the network.

Whenever you exchange your own virtual card with others, you are given the chance to choose exactly who will see the information that is contained therein. The recently-implemented Smartlabels system goes into ensuring full privacy, as the user actually gives permissions to other to view only these parts of his private info which he feels that he can share.

In this way, true smartcards are created and you (as the one sharing the information) are guaranteed that your privacy will be protected at all times. That is quite a novel feature, and one which gives Qubrit a clear advantage over competitors such as Plaxo.

Qubrit.com – An Online Approach To Business Cards

  • May 6, 2010

Qubrit.comA site that is still in early beta, Qubrit can be termed an online virtual card and professional contacts network. The one concern that Qubrit wants to deal with is that of information on physical cards becoming obsolete not long after they are printed.

Something like the Internet is obviously the perfect tool to tackle such a concern, as it can accommodate any change and make it instantly known to everybody.

A Qubrit account stands as a virtual business card that can be freely exchanged with others, and where up-to-date details such as phone numbers, emails and a person’s actual address are set down. More importantly, these virtual cards can link to every profile the individual has on the Social Web – Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn…

Ultimately, this platform gives just everybody access to professional information which is updated minute by minute. In theory, any person that you got to meet just once will be reachable through this platform once he has given you his personalized URL. Now, will this replace “traditional” business cards altogether? Only time will tell…
