Group Interactive Networks (GIN) announces the launch of a new Social Directory Facebook Application. Launching initially for six clients, the app allows organization members to connect and network with thousands of members across the country, inside of Facebook.
Users add the application in Facebook and provide basic profile data, much of which pulls from the individual’s Facebook account. Users can add additional information like major, industry, and whether they would like to serve as a mentor. Individuals can also indicate if they are looking for a job or have a job to fill and can list addresses for their social media profiles.
“The Social Directory Application takes networking to the next level,” said Chad Corbitt, vice president of GIN. “The search feature makes it easy to locate others based on chapter, geographical location, or professional status within your own organization, but you can also search within the fraternal community and begin conversations based on common personal or professional interests and networking objectives.”
The app allows members to search for others by numerous criteria and to link directly to others in social media sites such as LinkedIn, Twitter, or Google+.
The applications launched initially for Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Phi, Alpha Sigma Alpha, Alpha Sigma Tau, Golden Key International Honour Society, and Sigma Delta Tau. The applications now have a combined total of more than 55,000 members.
Founded in 2004, GIN creates innovative websites and members-only systems, custom Facebook Pages, and other technology tools for the Greek community. GIN’s clients include HazingPrevention.org and the following fraternities: Phi Delta Theta, Zeta Tau Alpha, Alpha Phi, Phi Mu, Delta Gamma, Alpha Xi Delta, Alpha Kappa Lambda, Delta Chi, Alpha Chi Omega, Sigma Nu, Zeta Beta Tau, Kappa Alpha Theta, Phi Kappa Tau, Delta Sigma Pi, and Triangle. Sorority clients include: Alpha Delta Pi, Alpha Sigma Tau, Sigma Kappa, Sigma Sigma Sigma, Sigma Delta Tau, Alpha Sigma Alpha, Gamma Phi Beta, Kappa Delta, Gamma Alpha Omega, and Kappa Delta Chi.
