When you meet someone for the first time, it’s not always easy to remember a name or to tie a face and name together. Even those of us who are usually reliable when it comes to remembering those crucial details get tripped up when meeting more than one person at a time. Keeping names and faces straight in your mind probably isn’t a problem you’ve really thought about, but it’s an issue that can impact your social and professional lives. Forgetting the name of your neighbor’s boss means it will be more difficult to follow up on that job offer, and knowing that you’re going to have to remember the name of your son’s best friend’s dad will eventually come into play. Wouldn’t it be nice if there were a way to make the process more automatic and less of a struggle?
It Doesn’t Have to Be This Hard
The name-and-face game doesn’t have to be a dance around the issue whenever you run into a new acquaintance whose name you don’t quite remember or whose face you’re having trouble placing. Instead of only relying on your memory—powerful, sure, but not always reliable—you can use the smartphone that’s sitting in your pocket. With the free Whitepages Caller ID, you can tie together names, numbers and faces. This way your phone becomes a much more modern version of the classic desktop Rolodex, but one that contains pictures, addresses and phone numbers. Caller ID is a tool that can get you out of many a social jam. When you see someone you recognize, but whose name you can’t quite remember, try checking your phone. If they’re also a Caller ID user and you’ve saved them as a contact, then you’ll have their name and photo at the ready.
By seamlessly integrating Caller ID with your social networks like Facebook or LinkedIn, your phone does most of the work related to remembering names and faces for you. Caller ID users that you’ve stored as a contact will automatically show the person’s most up-to-date profile picture and name. There’s no more worrying about an unrecognized number calling your phone, or trying to remember which number belongs to a new acquaintance and which one is a telemarketer that won’t give up because you can see exactly who is calling you.
A Useful Tool, Right in Your Pocket
No matter where you go, there’s always the potential to meet new people who are currently or will soon become involved in your life. Wouldn’t it be nice to meet them, add them to your contacts, and not have to worry about remembering a name, face or number the next time one of you wants to get in touch? By downloading Whitepages Caller ID, you can.
