DandyID Releases Paid Pro Accounts and Service Verification
DandyID describes their service as, “providing a set of tools that help you to collect, manage, and own your online identity.” We first met the DandyID team at SXSW and we filmed a video interview with the team. DandyID has over 300 services listed in their social database. Today they are releasing Pro Accounts and service verification.
Service verification allows you to assure people that who you say you are is who you are on a specific service. DandyID is using oAuth along with other verification services including the Flickr Authentication API and Facebook Connect for the verification. What this means is that after you signup for a DandyID account, you can select to verify a variety of services they have listed.
The Pro Accounts service is available for $4.99 and includes the following services:
- Personal Stats: Track how people are connecting with your complete identity across the web
- Social Analytics: Learn where your contacts exist online and which social networks are most important to them
- Contact Updates: Get notified via RSS whenever one of your contacts adds a new service to DandyID
- Pro Mail: Send 5 messages per month to members who are not on your contacts list
Update: Ken Stewart has posted a good review of DandyId.
