Have you heard of Fixedia yet? It’s a networking site — social media strikes again — for media pros like us. Already, that’s appealing to me, because it has a narrow(er) scope than a lot of other sites in this category. A month ago, the London-based Fixedia Group launched Fixedia and this week the start up brought the world Fixedia Unlimited, a networking and recruitment tool for media companies. What’s appealing here is what most social networking sites offer — access to people all over the world — but, a I mentioned earlier, with an emphasis on media.
Here’s some language from the press release:
Users are provided with a free social space to build their professional brand through showcasing a portfolio of work. They are able to build a global contact list, exchange ideas and discuss topics impacting the industry. Active conversations on the site currently include the challenges facing traditional media and the new skills-sets required to engage with audiences online.
What’s nice about this site is the potential to make meaningful, professional connections with people around the world. This, of course, is consistent with the globalization of just about everything. That whole six degrees of separation thing that used to wow us every time is so, well, yesterday.
“The concept of Fixedia is to connect individuals and companies in different parts of the world working in diverse, yet interconnected media industries. The feedback so far has been extremely positive. We will continue to maintain dialogue with our users to ensure Fixedia evolves into an indispensible resource and networking platform for media professionals worldwide”, says Managing Director, Suki Johal.
Soon they’ll be launching Fixfeeder, a marketing platform for businesses to connect with journalists and PR, marketing and advertising professionals on Fixedia.
I’m going to try it out and report back. If you’re doing the same, let me know what you think.
