The idea behind Gotelo is that it can be difficult for people to keep up with your Twitter ID, your Facebook page, LinkedIn account, blog and so on so anyone can go to Gotelo, enter in your phone number and get links to all your social media accounts and whatever websites you choose. Here’s a video that provides a bit more detail:
How useful this service becomes is dependent on how widely it’s adopted. It’s difficult to fit all your social media accounts on your business card and if you work for someone else, you may not be allowed to. So the idea of giving people the ability to find all this with just your phone number could be useful, especially if the service is free. If this was a feature of Google, it would probably work well. You could just tell someone to Google your phone number and they can find all your links. But Google is a household name, Gotelo isn’t. So the jury is still out on this one but since it’s free, why not give it a shot? You can sign up here: http://gotelo.com/ (Note: I have no affiliation with Gotelo)
