Social Ties App

You might recall I had early access this year to an app called Social Ties.  It was in private alpha test at the time, and I had a little fun with it at #TruLondon.  Well, it’s moved on.  It’s now in public Beta for Android phones – and I believe an iPhone version isn’t far behind. I plan on giving it another run out at the Social Recruiting Conference next week – and you’re welcome to join me.

The app is designed to pick up attendees of a conference, then combine the public details of you and others in the room to make recommendations based on social information. It also provides you with a groovy little cheat sheet – the Bio from their Twitter account, conversation key words, recent tweets….

Currently, it picks up delegates from the Lanyrd event platform – go here to register on Lanyrd for #SRConf – you can use a Twitter account to sign in. I know a number of other hook-ups are in the pipeline too, including FourSquare and #hashtag recognition.

If you have an Android phone and want to try it out, the download installation file is here, or available from their home page. The event will appear listed in the app a couple of days before the event.

Don’t be surprised if I come and introduce myself, already appearing to know a little about you!
