Networking has become time consuming

The amount of social media related data we are collecting on a daily basis increases constantly. Therefore, identifying and extracting important information fast and efficiently becomes more difficult and time consuming.

We filter your connections by relevance

By filtering connections by relevance xS allows its members to categorize and organize existing connections across multiple social networking platforms and to identify the most relevant connections in their network.

Who is most relevant to you?
