The almost total impossibility of finding reliable answers amongst all the dross put out by today’s social media plus the ability ‘to connect’, ‘to follow’ and ‘to become friends’ with people, fills our in boxes and our time online with vast quantities of useless information.

What XperLink is proposing is to stop only following people and start following also ideas. When an XperLink user follows a precise subject area he will automatically be in contact with the greatest experts in that field.

XperLink is a platform for free expression, half way between a meta-forum and a social media website:
  • A platform for questions and answers, with the added certainty that the best experts are available to respond and are easily recognizable.
  • A platform for debate which is open to all and which highlights the best opinions.
  • A platform for ideas which enables all members to express themselves equally and to seek reaction from a community that’s ready to share, promote and support ideas.

« You can't manage knowledge. Knowledge is between two ears and only between two ears », Peter Drucker

The paradigm of the social media, is that, although based on inter-personal relationships, they are on the point of making such relationships in the internet world both inoperable and reduced to the lowest common denominator. It is time to put social relationships back at the center of the development of modern human systems, and of the creation and innovation process.

The internet can and must retake its place at the heart of the progress of civilization and not content itself with being the domain of rumour and misinformation.
