JumpScan - New Social Media Site Uses QR Codes and Smart Phones to Connect Friends, Family and Co-Workers

We see this a natural convergence of two powerful media tools

With the growing popularity of QR codes and the mass adoption of social media, JumpScan™ leverages the power of both media tools to instantly connect the offline and online world in one place. JumpScan™ utilizes QR codes to create a "hardlink" from the physical world to the virtual world -- displaying a user's social media feeds and contact information. All that is required is a smart phone, and readily available QR code reader software.

Once a user signs up, and obtains his or her JumpScan™ QR code, they simply display it, and anyone with a smart phone can scan the image. The image links directly to a customized page on JumpScan.com, which displays the user's most feeds from Facebook, Twitter, and Flickr. They also have the option of adding contact information.

JumpScan can be thought of as a bar code to a user's personal or business life.

The benefits of JumpScan™ are numerous. Instead of asking for a business card, or typing a phone number into a cell phone, a user can just take a snapshot of a JumpScan™ QR code and get contact information with the click of a button.

Businesses can also use JumpScan™ by signing up and using their JumpScan™ QR code as the one image for all their consolidated social media feeds (Twitter, Facebook, etc.) If a business is closed, a potential customer can just scan the JumpScan™ image on the door or window of the business, and have access to the latest information, phone number, store hours, etc. In this way, it can serve as a silent salesperson.

"We see this a natural convergence of two powerful media tools," states Phil Davis, one of JumpScan's three founders. "For those looking for a convenient way to share and display all their social media in one place, on a mobile friendly platform, this is the way to go."

With a background in branding, social media, and internet commerce, Davis teamed up with Mike McKearin, a web strategist, and Ben Davis, an IT developer. The group plans on adding additional features and feeds in the coming weeks.

For those wanting more information, or to reserve their name, the site is currently in beta mode and available at JumpScan. View the video at YouTube.
