Listed below are links to weblogs that reference Thinking Like a Social Media Slut - Should we publish Twitter handle on Business Card?:

2 handed at all times. Never put the car in your pocket when you receive it, always make sure to read the card (or appear to read the card) and then place it on the table you are sitting at.

I have both a Twitter handle and QR code on my business card (the code points to an embedded, downloadable vCard). Makes too much sense not to do both of those. At some point, I'd think that a few of us would decommission email and just use Twitter, FB, and/or LinkedIn for the best means to be contacted. Which isn't a bad idea (I do it personally). Whether tech leaders will go there and be able to do it in such a way that changes this behavor is another story.

Side note: I also have a skin on my mobile with a URL and a QR Code on there. That way if I run out of cards, I can just flip my mobile to the back, that is, if folks have a device that can't take a sent vCard via MMS.

Separately we have the discussion about the pending death of business cards. Many have stopped printing them and only use electronic cards. For that, I just say that for now, here in Asia, if you do not have an actual business card, you are not 'very modern' - you are 'insignificant' haha. Here the culture demands that if you are important enough to come to a meeting, you must have 'name cards' - the more impressive the better (and there is a whole etiquette on how to present and receive business cards).

We are having an interesting debate and discussion on Twitter about the use of the Twitter handle or nickname - like for me my Twitter nickname is @tomiahonen (no surprise) - on the business card. If you want to follow - and join - the debate, the hashtag is #twbizcard - add your thoughts.

How much is that? 4.85 million MeeGo sales (N9 and N950) at 400 Euros per handset = 1.9 Billion Euros of revenues. Rather than Nokia reporting a 1.6 Billion Euro decline in sales revenues in Q4, with 2.7 Billion total revenues in the unit, Nokia's CEO could have proudly reported an INCREASE of 300 million Euros above the revenues a year ago in smartphones and

It s well known that the hermes uk is one of the biggest names in luxury, so we are coming

up with the expensive price. Do you think that Hermes Birkin bags from our online store are

coming with a reasonable price? It is a fact that most people would think would never

happen, but the fact is that these bags are very popular in the price that most people have

the ability to deliver on our reputation online, so you should come and take this
