Quirky business card company MOO.com has teamed up with everyone’s favourite social network to create a new kind of business card, which aims to bring together our online profiles and our offline networking habits, as well as celebrate the controversial launch of the new Facebook timeline.
The cards can be designed and customised by each user and you can feature any Facebook photo on the front and a favourite quote or saying on the reverse (is that sweet or just very very cheesy?).
Richard Moross, CEO and Founder of MOO.com, explains that this new collaboration is much more than getting your hands on a shiny new business card:
“It’s clear that consumer habits of sharing business and personal information are evolving, and the lines between online social networking and offline business networking are not just blurring, but vanishing.
“This integration places MOO and Facebook at the leading edge of this new trend: seamlessly turning your dynamic online presence into a beautifully designed, high quality offline ‘social’ business card. We’re very excited about this new and unique way to share your contact details, and other profile information, with friends in the real world.”
We’d argue that the line between our online and offline personas disappeared a long time ago and the new cards seem a bit like a ploy to get us all embrace to the new Facebook timeline with open arms, but if it means we get our hands on some (potentially free) Moo.com merchandise, then we’re not complaining.
