15. Whose posts will I see on my Inspire Feed?

Everything posted by people you follow will show in your Inspire Feed. Dysco learns your preferences and interests, and based on your industry, we show you content that you’re likely to find inspiring or intriguing. This will be related to your industry, your profession and the people around you. You will also find suggestions of people to follow on your inspire feed, these are the people we think you might find interesting.

16. What are Dysco blurbs?

On our blog, the Dysco Blurb, we feature cool job openings, interviews with fascinating people, current events, and other insights into various professions. You can directly interact with each blurb on the Dysco app. If we’re putting out content that’s relevant to you, you’ll see it the next time you’re on Dysco.

17. What industries are available on Dysco?

Dysco is for people of all industries, creative and non creative. We think cross-industry conversations and networking is really important, so we operate across 18 different industries (full list available here). If you don’t see your industry listed, you can select ‘Other’ and write to us if you really want us to create a new industry for you!

18. What should I upload on my profile? What’s the difference between a portfolio and a feed?

You can showcase your work and skills in your ‘Work’ section of your profile. These can include images, videos, links, or whatever format suits your profession. We’ve divided this up into your ‘portfolio’ and your ‘feed’. Your portfolio is for your most relevant or best work, that you always want to be visible at the top of your profile. This would likely be your website link, samples of your best photos and maybe your latest interview. The rest of your work can be uploaded to your Personal Feed. Everything you upload here goes out to all your followers in their Inspire feed. If you want to enlarge or feature one of your feed posts at the top for everyone to see, click the ‘star’ icon at the top right corner of that post.

19. What do I write in the ‘About Me’ section of my profile?

Be as descriptive as you can in the ‘About Me’ section about your qualifications, the work you do and what you excel at. It doesn’t matter if it’s too long, the more relevant information you feed in about yourself, the easier it is for Dysco’s unique search engine to enable people to find you and discover your work. The information you include in your ‘About Me’ also helps Dysco show you relevant people that you might work with. So write about your professional history, your various ventures, your interests and hobbies and even what you’re currently looking for.

20. How do I use the Dysco chat?

The Dysco chatroom is a safe place to have a conversation and discuss prospective collaborations with someone whose work you really like. It’s especially convenient for the people who wouldn’t want to reveal their email address or contact number. Share images, links, or your other information to take the conversation further.

21. How does the Dysco search engine work?

You can search for either ‘content’ or ‘people’ through the Dysco search engine. Content: If you want to search for specific kind of work (maybe abstract art, perhaps minimal UI UX, or vegan food), you can do a content search to see relevant posts. Any videos, links, or photos that match your search query will show up! Being descriptive in your title and description, whenever you’re uploading a piece of content. What you put in these fields, will help your content get discovered by those looking for it. People:If you’re looking for a specific person, someone with a special skill set or someone in a particular city then you can search for their name or their skill in the ‘People’ search bar. Dysco will filter out all the people that match your query. Our algorithm and AI understand context, so people with relevant skills will also show up in the results.

22. Whose profiles should I bookmark?

Bookmark the profiles of people that you might like to work or collaborate with in the future. These might be people whose work you don’t want to see everyday in your Inspire Feed, but might want to save for later. If you want to see their posts in your feed, then follow them as well. Only you can see the profiles you’ve bookmarked. When you bookmark someone’s profile, they won’t know that you bookmarked it.
