Introducing new profile design and Talentscore

We’ve made all Talentag users even more irresistable by redesigning how everyone’s profile looks. We had added features and profile elements over time and this meant that it was difficult to get a sense of someone at a first glance, which many of you pointed out as well (please, do keep the feedback coming). So we redesigned the profile to show the most important things about you at the top area [&hellip

Compare your tags to friends and peers

We’ve added a nifty little feature that lets you compare your tags to those of your friends or peers. Now you can see which of your perceiver personality trairs are unique to you, which ones you share with either your friends or people in your field and which ones you miss out on. We’ve also refreshed the design of your home screen and friends page. You can now see the [&hellip

Now – get real feedback with Talentag

We’v e been talking a lot recently. We’ve had conversations with lots of users, social media specialists and just really clever people and asked for feedback on Talentag. Many have said that badges and tags are great for many things but they don’t give you real feedback on how you are perceived. We did a little bit of home reading and are now taking tags a little bit further. Instead [&hellip

Event badges – we think they will be big

Sending badges has by far been the most popular activity on Talentag and we’ve added new badges almost every week – most of them have been requested by our users. This has been nicely complemented by badges that people receive in the process, the so-called game mechanics badges like Popular for receiving a certain number of tags or Generous for tagging others (our game mechanics deserves a standalone post one [&hellip

We’ve changed history, and more

We’ve changed the History tab in Talentag with today’s release, I mean. It used to be you could only see the last thirty or so something lines of recent activity. The new one not only scrolls to infinity but allows you to sort history by everone’s, your friends’ and your own activity only. Follow people that are not your ‘friends’ If you want to keep an eye on someone you [&hellip

Awesome coverage and a standalone site for Talentag

It’s been good days (and some late evenings) here at the towers. The main piece of news is that we’ve opened Talentag as a standalone site, as opposed to Facebook app-only approach we had before. We did this so that we could guarantee better reliability and speed for our users. Facebook and its API are great but they don’t always guarantee the best app user experience for someone with [&hellip

New features: Use Talentag to ask feedback and build your ‘crowd-sourced CV’

We’ve added a couple of nifty features to Talentag. In addition to badges you can now give and receive tags and vouches as well. For example, I could vouch my colleague Jüri in his role as the co-founder of Or I could tag it with words that relate very specifically to that role and not anything he has done before. This way you can use Talentag not only to [&hellip

We’ve launched Talentag

We’re on a roll. Just days after opening the doors for Emply the job ads posting service we launched Talentag. It’s a facebook app that lets you pay compliments to co-workers or friends in form of nice badges. For instance I could say that Veli in our team is the greatest designer in the world, or I could say he’s helpful. As SocialTimes puts it: There’s always the chance that this [&hellip

The gift or using Premium for free

We know finding good people can be a bit tricky at times. We also know that money is tight in this economy, especially for startups – this is why we launched in the first place. And this is why we’d like to allow small companies and startups use Premium for free. Not only makes it super easy to post jobs onto social networks and see sharing stats, it [&hellip

First results, first improvements

We’ve been live for a couple of days now. It’s great to see first job postings added to Emply and actively shared and retweeted on social networks. Thanks for the first brave ones for posting their openings and feedback! Meanwhile we’ve launched app on Facebook that lists all job postings and lets you narrow them down to postings by your friends only. You can also view your friends through a [&hellip

How does Emply work?

Good candidates are always hard to find because they are not actively browsing job boards. Social networks are much better for reaching the best people. Emply lets you post job ads easily and add incentives for people in your networks to spread the word, a sweepstake of Amazon gift cards among everyone that retweeted or shared your job posting, for example.

Who is Emply for?

Emply is used by small and medium businesses who want to hire the best but can't always afford to hire a full-service recruiter. These companies usually have reasonable social media presence, Emply just adds the automated incentives engine and sharing stats. The result is your job posting seen by more passive candidates you can dream of.
