A new piece of technology attempts to forgo the use of paper-based cards altogether. Near field communication (NFC) is a set of protocols that allows smartphones to establish wireless communication by touching the devices together.
The technology has been adapted by the application Qikshare, which facilitates social networking by allowing users to share contacts, photos, videos or files with each other. Available on both Apple and Android devices, the app does not require Bluetooth or WiFi to function.
