Background on the vCard, QR Code and Data Matrix formats
Data in the vCard format is stored in a plain text file which is formatted according to the vCard specification; these files typically use the .vcf extension. The vCard files are properly recognized by the vast majority of applications and mobile devices.
Data in the QR Code and Data Matrix format is shown as an image (both are two-dimensional barcodes, as opposed to the one-dimensional barcode printed on most consumer goods). Many mobile devices are able to scan and interpret QR Codes and Data Matrix codes. These barcodes can store any kind of data, from arbitrary text to structured data such as geographical positioning data and contact information. Contact information displayed in the QR Code and/or Data Matrix formats allow users to scan the data directly into the mobile device without having to manually transcribe it.
If you plan to use these formats on a web site, the ideal implementation is to link to the vCard file in the mobile version of the site (so users can download the file directly into the mobile device) and display the QR Code and/or Data Matrix image on the regular version of the website (so users can scan them on the computer screen directly into their mobile device).
If you only have one version of the web site for both mobile users and computers you can include both formats one next to each other (the QR Code and/or Data Matrix image and a link to the vCard file).
Regardless of your option, please note you should include a human-readable format for the contact information besides the vCard and/or QR Code/Data Matrix data. For example you can compare the Moongate contact page for mobile devices to the default version (we chose to only show the QR code on our contact page, but your needs might vary).
