Could Inspire be the new LinkedIn?
Everyone knows LinkedIn, nowadays with over 300 million users it has become the go-to platform for networking in the business world. This might change with the new startup called Conspire. I guess you haven’t heard about it yet, but maybe in the future you will use it.
Conspire has a new approach for how to meet people. It starts by connecting your email-account (and in the future also with other platforms like Twitter and Facebook). They will analyse the data to see how well you know other people. By analysing the data it will find the strongest path of connections between you and the person you want to meet. This chain of connections is not based on whom you know, but how well you know them. The relationship graph will be updated in the background so you can always see how the most reliable chain of connection between you and the person will evolve. It also lets you keep tabs on your connections, letting you explore your volume of email, average response times, most frequent contacts and a list of people you’re losing touch with.
At LinkedIn you will have a lot of connections you have never met or spoken to. This means you may not even know who some of the people are in your LinkedIn network. Conspire wants to understand who knows each other but also how strong those connections are.
Do you think Conspire will have a chance to become the new LinkedIn?
