Cliqset Wants to Unify Your Social Identities

March 10th, 2009 | by Jennifer Van Grove

Previously hidden away behind closed doors, Cliqset, a social identity platform, is drawing back their curtains today and opening up their beta site to the public. Similar in purpose to the private beta site, Cliqset’s ultimate goal is to help users connect their online identities in one place so they can then safely share that online social identity with Cliqset-aware applications.

Cliqset even claims to be the last social identity you will ever need. After signing up, new Cliqset members can connect their Cliqset identity with their pre-existing Google, Plaxo, and Yahoo accounts, which means those contacts can be pulled into Cliqset and grouped into relationships.

Posted by Jessica on Nov 4th, 2008

Several of the TopRank Online Marketing team attended a Social Media Breakfast last Friday, along with about 150 local business leaders, code warriors, internet marketers, agency peeps and social media enthusiasts, to hear a presentation by David Meerman Scott, author of “The New Rules of Marketing & PR”. TopRank CEO Lee Odden posted a short write up and video interview with Scott as well.

David started his presentation with an impromptu survey, asking the audience to respond with a show of hands to questions like:

  • How many of you have been to a tradeshow as a participant, not an exhibitor, in the last year? (very few people in the room raised their hands)
  • How many of you have responded to a Direct Marketing piece in the last year? (very few people in the room raised their hands)
  • How many of you have seen an advertisement, either magazine or TV, and made a call or purchase based on the advertisement? (again, very few show of hands in an overly packed room)
  • Now, how many of you have done a search on Google to find answers or information about a product? (almost everyone in the room raised their hands to answer this question)
  • How many of you have reached out to your network for answers, either by using Facebook, LinkedIn, or other online venues? (about 95% of the room raised their hands). Read more
