You can now link your Lanyrd account to your profiles on other sites, making it easier for others to find out more about you and follow up with you after meeting you at an event.
Two of Lanyrd's most popular features are our profile pages (particularly good for speakers) and the searchable attendee directory we make available for every event. Our latest improvement affects both of those features: you can now link your Lanyrd page to your other profiles around the web.
To get started, sign in to Lanyrd and head over to the new edit profile links page.
We announced our integration with Foursquare a few weeks ago - and today we're taking the first steps towards smarter integration with GitHub and LinkedIn as well. If you click the "Add your GitHub/LinkedIn account" links we'll send you to those sites for authentication and connect them up to your profile.
We'll show your GitHub and LinkedIn links on your main Lanyrd profile and in your attendee directory listings for any events you attend. As Foursquare is more of a personal network, we'll only show your Foursquare link if you tell us to.
We also use the
<a rel="me"> microformat for each of your profile links - you can find out more about this on the microformats wiki.
We plan to integrate with more services in the future… so let us know what you think!
