What can you use the app for?

Tyba is a an online presence for professionals. It can help users who are looking for a job since it makes it so one's Facebook account isn't the first and only thing that recruiters find when completing a Google search on the user. Instead, their Tyba profile can show up and provide a professional and complete picture of the individual. Tyba makes it so recruiters can quickly and easily filter one's data, a user can highlight their talents and strengths, one's resume can be posted and made readily available, and users can let others know who they are in their own words. There is even a hosting service where one could get a personal domain and host their Tyba information on it (i.e. www.YourNameHere.com). Since job candidates are Googled all of the time, Tyba is a place where users can improve their online reputation and somewhat control an employers image of them. Both professional potential and personal interests can be showcased on one's Tyba page to offer visitors a complete picture of who they are. Tyba sites can be quickly updated and customized.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Tyba is managed by a team out of Madrid, Spain. The site was founded by Jorge Schnura and Philip von Have to give university students the ability to elevate their professional potential. Aside from this information, there isn't a whole lot of data available about this service.

What are the differences to other apps?

Tyvba is different from Facebook since it is all about showcasing the individual in their best light. It is also different from LinkedIn and other job search engines since it allows users to include some personal information as they see fit onto their Tyba profile as well.

How does the web app look and feel to use?

Tyba itself is a very fast website and it is designed with a fresh and fun look. The information is easily accessible and setting up a new profile is relatively easy to do. The only issue encountered during this review was when accessing the personal domains of some of the team members, the site seemed to lag momentarily. It finally responded and loaded as it should, but the time delay was noticeable.

How does the registration process work?

New users can sign up for a Tyba account by providing their first and last name, email address and a password. Users can also link their existing Facebook account for faster sign in.

What does it cost to use the application?

Tyba offers pricing plans that are free to premium plans that include one's own web domain. For example, the free plan that Tyba offers provides users with a Tyba URL (i.e. www.tyba.com/yourname), the basic modules that show one's experience and interests, and basic customization options. However the free plan is supported by banner ads that would show up on the user's profile which could seem a bit less than professional. For 3,95€ per month, users could get their own domain name and a profile page that is ad-free. This plan is their best value but does need to be pre-paid for an entire year (so, 47,40€ would be due at signing). Finally, users could go for a monthly plan of 4,95€ a month, get all the benefits of the "yearly" plan and just pay an extra 1€ for the convenience of going month to month.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Tyba is an excellent tool for anyone looking to market themselves, especially if they are in the midst of a job search today. Tyba aims to be one's place on the web where they can portray themselves as they wish. This is great for university students who are graduating and looking to get into the job scene.
