Virtual Business Cards
Has the paper business card lost its significance — and utility? How many business cards have you collected that will never again see the light of day?

Picture This Scenario
You just returned from the convention in Las Vegas with a stack of business cards. Since you want to maintain contact with them, you now face the task of entering their information into your contact manager and cell phone. You may even begin looking them up one by one at Facebook or LinkedIn.
Virtual business cards exchanged through text messaging can help solve a few of these burdensome tasks, if not all of them eventually. By texting your business card to them in the first place, they are automatically placed in your online contact list.
As more and more savvy business people create their own virtual business cards, you will then be able to exchange much more than name and cell phone number. Their Facebook, LinkedIn, RSS, and other resources can all be captured at once.
