In my country we can see different kinds of business card according to the profession they are working.Name of the person or company and contact field are mandatory in all businesses cards.For an advanced business card they usually include social media account and email id.

In my country it is not currently used to give a business card, now there are networks

They have address, tel, and their specialty on their business card.

I'd rather get a business card through smartphone.... :)

In my country we use a lot of business cards, always with some company logo and of course the details of which this card represents.

I do not know because I never see business cards but I think it should be there name phone number and email address

The business cards would have the name, the profession and the Whats-app and maybe the web page or Instagram.

But, now its difficult introduce with other people using business card.

In Guinea, the business cards contains these informations like the logo, address and name of company, the name, title, email and phone numbers of worker.

Hello everyone, in my country business cards contain company's name, what business it carried out, address, mobile number, and other things.
Individual business cards contain person's name what position in the company, which area he work, mobile number.

In my country people have on their business cards: the name of the company, the name of the person, the position in the company, the person's cell phone number and brief information about the company.
