How is MyGenius different to Facebook? Facebook tends to be more for social engagement. Folks generally interact with their friends and family on Facebook. Often they feel it inappropriate to allow their business contacts access to their Facebook profiles. MyGenius allows you to keep this separate and create a separate online business persona. In addition, as a business person, you need to join a network that is focused on driving local business directly to your website and your phone lines.
How is MyGenius different to Linked-In? Linked-In tends to be a repository for your CV and experience. For most people there is no engagement beyond just setting up a profile. It is a vast and international network. MyGenius gives you the opportunity to create your South African online business persona as opposed to just a static international profile.
