It takes people a while to decide a network is important enough to put a little time into it. We’ve really built many tools in Geeklist to integrate as easily and seamlessly as possible and we now know people are looking at your profile every day. Sometimes only a few, sometimes thousands, but they are looking for to find interesting, like-minded geeks, to learn from your resources and links or maybe to see if you or your friends may be interested in working on some great new project. Here’s an example of some of the people who viewed my profile recently:
Sometimes it’s clients, maybe some investors or possible people just interested in what links I’ve added and what I’ve done in my past that I consider and Achievement.
In your profile there are really a number of areas you can keep up to date automatically, like your Github code commits and code pages which update automatically simply by linking with Github. Perhaps you want to share your Geek gadgets by uploading photos via instagram, just go to your settings page and link that up too.
Most importantly are two items which say the most about you, your profile data and your Achievement cards. In your profile settings you will want to make certain your availability is set to the proper selection:
In your Achievement cards think back to some of the very cool achievements you accomplished at prior or current jobs, projects, life accomplishments, it’s all part of your Geek persona.
Build it out as Geeklist is rapidly growing and sharing achievements with the world just plain rocks. Curious as to who’s viewed you? Here’s where to find out:
If you weren’t inspired to share with the world your great Geek achievements before, maybe watching the Geeks at NASA last night land a 1 ton rover on Mars 100,000,000+ miles away will make you that much more proud to be a geek!
