New sharing platform for your digital business card

The revamped sharing platform consists of Text, Email, Facebook Messenger, QR Code, WhatsApp, Twitter, Facebook, and LinkedIn. To begin, you will need the apps, listed above, installed on your phone to share your digital card via that platform. For example, if you share your digital card via Facebook Messenger, you will need the Facebook Messenger app installed on your mobile device. You can download these apps from the Google Play or the App Store. The Switchit update is available for iOS and Android.

Let’s discuss the new options

Messages

Choose Messages to share your digital business card, via text, to a person’s mobile device. To begin, enter the recipient’s phone number, tap Share, select the card, and choose the sharing option Messages. When this option is chosen, a pre-populated greeting along with a unique URL is delivered to the person’s mobile device via an SMS message. On iPhones, if the recipient cannot access your card by clicking the link, they can simply respond back to your text with the word RESEND or copy and paste the link into their phone’s web browser.
