Exchanging electronic business cards, in addition to or instead of paper business cards, is becoming commonplace. For example, two or more people who meet in a business situation might exchange electronic business cards using wireless communication (for example, infrared, BluetoothTM and so on) between two personal devices, such as PDAs or mobile phones). Electronic business card exchange is one example of exchanging selected personal information with other parties. This invention extends this idea to a wealth of personal information that can be shared in many day-to-day situations.
