Frequently Asked Questions
What is Konnektid?
Well in a nutshell, Konnektid connects.
People everywhere are walking around with useful skills and knowledge. Unfortunately, all that juicy information is too often inaccessible. What a waste! Konnektid helps you crack open the minds of others to expand your own.
Konnektid makes this social capital available by connecting you with skilled people nearby that can teach you something, inspire you, or even help you solve a problem. And guess what? You can inspire and help people around you too!
Where does the idea behind Konnektid come from?
Good question! One sunny day we realized that we all live in our own social bubbles, where we share our skills only with the people we know from circles like work or studies. We are not making the most of what is around us. This needs to change. And Voila! Konnektid is born.

Is Konnektid for free?
Yes, as free as a bird in clear blue skies.
Why would I share my skills via Konnektid?
Quid pro quo. If you want to receive help from a community, you should also contribute. When you need somebody who can help you out, you’ll probably have more luck in finding someone if you are an active member who shares his/her skills as well.
Plus, it’s really rewarding. Trust us: we’re skill-sharing junkies.
Is Konnektid really awesome?
Yup. In fact tests were run.
How do I actually ‘konnekt’ to someone?
Have you found somebody who can help you out? Choose the profile you want to konnekt to and click “Get Konnektid”! Send him or her a well thought out and personal invite to konnekt. When your invite is accepted, he or she has to propose a date, time and location to meet. If you both agree, the konnekting is on! It’s that simple.
Why would I link one of my social networks to my Konnektid profile?
Two reasons: Trust & Simplification.
Social networks help you build trust with people you don’t know yet. And trust is important when you are Konnekting with somebody.
Connecting your Konnektid profile to other social media platforms simplifies. Registering again and again with the same info gets old, quickly. That’s why we at Konnektid want to make life easy for you: we’ll aggregate information from your social media networks and make it into your Konnektid profile. The more social networks you link to Konnektid, the more information we can use to complete your profile. This way, you won’t have to fill in any information yourself!
You can also add and remove whatever you like! But don’t worry! We WILL NOT share it with any other websites. What goes on Konnektid, stays on Konnektid.
Why do I get emails requesting skills I don't have?
A lot of people just share a few skills on Konnektid while they are able to do a lot more. By actively asking around we tap into all knowledge available, not only the listed skills, and we are able to match more people. We try to remember what you can and cannot teach and in the future we will better target our mailing based on your behavior. Until then we ask for your patience. You can always set your email preferences to receive one weekly digest.
But I don’t have any skills to contribute...
Of course you do! You don’t have to be a pro at something for it to be of value. We can all help others grow.
