Postess, the Hostess for Profiles

Posted by admin | Uncategorized | Tuesday 22 February 2011 5:18 am

Postess.com is a social networking-style website for professionals. Like LinkedIn or Naymz, Postess is used for business connections and professionalism, but it can also be quite fun, quite important. Their motto is “Think. Look. be Professional”. The idea is that employers could be directed towards your Postess profile, rather than other social networking profiles that might be more damaging–like Myspace or Facebook.

Postess.com was developed and launched publicly on October 1st of 2006. The launch of Postess.com was a hard and long journey, as Postess Owner had to decide on what types of information on a profile would help make employers see you more professionally. Postess Owner turned to a Human Resource department for a good idea of what information employers would like to know, and then assembled those questions and added them to Postess.com.

Postess is not the most popular business profile site on the web–obviously there are some others that clearly outrank it. It is also not the flashiest–not having the millions from angel investment to hire crack programmers, but what Postess does offer is another profile for free, that is designed to be presentable and professional. This is great for Internet reputation management purposes.

Social networking is not just a fad–it is a trend on the Internet that is not going away anytime soon. Hundreds of millions of people all across the world have signed up on many social networking sites and use them on a daily basis for all kinds of activities. Social networking isn’t just a hobby anymore, it is almost required for many jobs and many jobs are now based around organizing social media.

Fotki is a strange name to be sure, but it’s a pretty successful social networking site. It’s available in over fifteen languages and claims to have over 1.6 million registered users. Those users range from over 240 countries and the website itself hosts over a billion images. Fotki is a visually based social networking site–it’s popular amongst people who want to share videos and photos, mostly. It was founded in 1998 by Dmitri Don, and has waxed and waned in popularity since then, but has experienced steady growth over that time.
