Unyk.com is a contact management website, that allows users to put together an intelligent address book. This particular service bases itself on the sharing of contact information by its users; each user is therefore responsible for keeping his information updated in his or her contacts address book
Users complete their personal and professional contact information in their profile on the website. They can then aggregate the contacts from all their messaging services (Outlook, Hotmail, Yahoo!, etc.) in their address book, and invite these contacts to complete their own profile on the website. When information is edited by a user, that information automatically appears in his contacts address books, and vice versa. Contrary to other sites, the users contacts are not visible to other users.
