Refresh Tells You About Who You’re About to Meet So You Can Skip the Small Talk

Refresh iOS App

The first meeting is almost always awkward. There’s only so much you can say about the weather and the traffic, and the pressure that comes with wanting to make a good first impression clearly won’t do anything for your conversational skills. What you need is information, even just the basics, about the person you’re about to meet.

If you have the luxury of time, then you could do a search and Google to browse his or her social media profiles. But if you’re running on a tight schedule, the best you can do is pull up a quick 30-second briefing of whoever you’re meeting using Refresh.

It’s an iOS app that parses data from social media networks and other online sources to give you a quick background on the other person, so you’ll have something to talk about aside from the weather. Refresh provides information such as the person’s jobs, achievements, interests, and travels.

Refresh is currently in private beta. If you’re interested, you can sign up at the Refresh website using your LinkedIn account.
