With many a Social Network Giant's dominance on a decline, Micro-Social Networks are on the rise and gaining momentum. MyLiveCV.com is a Micro-Social Network for Professionals and it caters to a niche audience seeking valuable engagement. It caters to the those left in the shadows of "Influentially Boosted Profiles", not wanting to rely on "Algorithms" to be seen and heard... It is Unique, in its Purpose. It is Unique, in its Business Model. It is NEVER going to compete with the likes of beBee or LinkedIn. It is more of a complement to current Professional Social Networks. Subscribe and stay tuned for updates. A win-win for all. A " Free for ever" policy for members.
