New QR Code social network

qr code, qr code reader, electronic business cardSkanz, a new social networking platform, launched today offering consumers a digital home for all of their social media conveniently stored in their own unique QR code (supercharged barcode). Skanz allows you to create your own secure, free, mobile website — your Skanzsite — and share it at the flash of a smartphone. Friends, family and colleagues scan your QR code, and instantly your Skanzsite appears on their phone, facilitating the exchange of your contact details, social media and more. And to make sharing your Socialprint™ fun and fashionable, Skanz lets you “Wear the Web” with a full line of trendy QR-coded fashion accessories. Skanz accessories are available today at skanz.com and soon at retailers nationwide.

With Skanz, your QR code is your Socialprint. Anyone can go to www.skanz.com to create a Socialprint. There is no cost to generate a QR code or to customize or maintain your Skanzsite. Here’s how it works:

1) Register at www.skanz.com.
2) Add your contact information. Include your email addresses and phone numbers (for texting and/or calling).
3) Add your social media. Add your Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+ or any of your other social media.
4) Add interests. Add your favorite videos, photos, music, and more.
5) Apply security. Add a password to your entire site and the first time someone scans your code the person will be prompted for your password.
6) Choose wallpaper that matches your style.

There are lots of ways to share your Skanzsite online — via email, posts, tweets and you can download a copy. Or to Wear the Web and help facilitate the sharing of your digital life, you can choose from a line of QR-coded accessories including multicolored silicone bands ($9.99), phone cases ($19.99-$24.99) and decals ($5.00). Every Skanz accessory contains a unique QR code and serial number that connects you to your Skanzsite for easy on-the-go sharing.

“These days, there is so much personal and social information we want to share with our friends, family and colleagues. Skanz brings it all together in your own personal QR-coded Socialprint,” said Tammy Lewis, CMO of Skanz and parent company QR Media Group. “Meet a new friend in a social setting or a new business colleague at a conference and instead of calling them with your cellphone so they have your number (or handing them an old-fashioned paper business card), a quick flash of your QR-coded Socialprint will give them access to the information they need to get in touch — and stay in touch.”

With Skanz, all you need is a smartphone and QR reader app to “unlock the code” and gain access to each other’s Skanzsites. Skanz offers a lightning-fast QR-code reader app — Skanz — available for anyone as a free download at the iTunes App Store or the Android Market.

“Even though QR codes are showing up everywhere in marketing and advertising, consumer adoption has been low because there has not been a compelling reason for consumers to interact with them,” said Bradley Lewis, CEO of Skanz and parent company QR Media Group. “Why not let consumers in on the action and give them their own QR-coded social platform that allows them to create, connect and share?”

Skanz links the worlds of mobile technology, social media and fashion. Skanz accessories mark the first time a social media platform has been translated into web-enabled fashion.
