Zerply, for the informal professional
For a while now it has been fairly popular practice for people to make a landing page that links up with all of their current content-sharing accounts and provide a one-stop shop for exploring a person’s digital footprint.
I was never really a fan of the ones around. A popular website for a while has been flavors.me and I’ve seen a few people using it as the face of their personal websites - I don’t really see the appeal because it seems to add nothing except being a place where you can show off your blog and twitter, for example, in the same place.
However Zerply changes things for me - I’ve got a LinkedIn profile and I think it’s a pretty awesome way to present yourself professionally. It’s not, however, somewhere that I want to link to my tumblr or twitter account because I see it as a formal networking site. Zerply, on the other hand, strikes me as a great way to present your experience and skills in a more informal setting whilst providing people with links to check out your other “informal” networks.
The service definitely fits more neatly with what I would assume a personal website should be about.
