How is Fin Contacts personalized for me?
When you use Fin Contacts you connect your email, calendar, and contacts to Fin’s collective knowledge graph. This allows Fin to personalize results for you. The contacts graph updates itself as the community contributes to it adding new people, filling in the latest and most accurate information.
How do I get introductions?
In general, you are much more likely to be able to engage someone you don’t know on a question you have, or for help with something if the introduction comes from the right person. When you want an introduction to someone simply ‘ask for an intro’. Fin generates an email thread where you can give context and then routes it to the mutual connections most likely to be helpful.
What does it mean to ‘trust’ someone?
Trusting someone on Fin is a way for you to express trust in a close friend. If you ‘trust’ someone we will let them know that you have ‘trusted’ them to see your relationships to other people on Fin. So, when they look up someone you know, it will let them know that you are connected to that person.
What does it mean that Fin is a knowledge collective?
It means that all the users collectively contribute the knowledge that makes Fin useful. By contributing knowledge yourself you get access to the knowledge of others.
How does AAI moderation work?
We care a lot about the health and quality of the Fin ecosystem. When you reach out to someone over email or text we can proxy the communication and review what you are sending. When we review things, we use a combination of machine and human intelligence (AAI - artificial, artificial intelligence).
I already use Fin, should I sign up for Fin Contacts?
No. Fin Contacts offers a strict subset of the functionality of the Fin app (which is effectively a command line interface to Fin’s AAI + Knowledge Collective). If you are a Fin user you can use the Fin app to get access to all the same functionality as Fin Contacts users.
What does the app cost?
Access to Fin Contacts is $100 / month. It is a premium service.
Can I use Fin Contacts in Europe?
Sadly it is against our terms of service to use Fin Contacts in Europe.
Can I use Fin Contacts on Android?
Someday, but not today. We will get to building an Android version in time, but since we are still iterating we are on iOS only.
When will Fin Contacts be out of Beta?
Not for a long time. Fin Contacts is the first vertical application built on top of the Fin OS. We will be evolving it quickly with improvements and new functionality. We will be under the ‘beta’ heading for quite some time as we evolve the service.
