Boston, MA (PRWEB) February 2, 2006 –
JAR Networks today announced that EventJAR.com, a rapidly growing travel website, continues to expand its successful travel information service with the launch of LocalBuzz service. LocalBuzz combines online City Guides with social networking functionality. This new service allows users to share ratings and reviews of local venues, and provides user-assisted community event submission.
As the public has increasingly migrated to the WEB for information and traditional real-world social networks have loss vigor, people are switching to online communities, also known as social networking, to share ratings and reviews of local businesses.
Web-based social networks are becoming more locally focused. EventJar.com’s LocalBuzz initiative adds value to its existing City Guides by allowing local organizations and entertainment venues to announce and promote their events. The availability of a larger number local community events enhance and improve the user’s experience.
“Today’s announcement allows EventJar to expand its event coverage from major culture events with mass appeal to covering local community events with more limited appeal,” said Richard Crump, founder, EventJAR. “LocalBuzz benefits not only business travelers and tourists who will gain a better knowledge of local events and venues, but also the local community as this gives a great platform for local organizations and businesses to publicize community events for free.”
EventJAR is the home of the only nationwide art exhibition listing database, along with other cultural and entertainment event information. It also offers users comprehensive travel-related content in its city guides and LocalGeo interactive maps that include local points of interest, attractions, hotels, movie theaters, zoos, art museums, aquariums, and botanical gardens.
