Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 21, 2007
The first localized, mobile community that allows consumers to RSVP, tag and post events, send and received text messages, create mobile profiles and connect people to the social scene in their local area, recently launched on the heels of NBA All-Star.
The consumer-generated content-based site provides a platform for finding or publicizing a variety of events, both local and remote which are viewable online and on internet-enabled mobile devices. With online expanded search capabilities and interactive mapping, consumers are able to add their own listings that are attached to their official Mobloco profile, along with any supporting information, such as event descriptions, dates of events, photos/flyers and venues where they take place. Additionally, consumers of the free community are able to create alerts to receive notifications on their mobile devices of when events are happening based on the preferences that they specify.
"While you can view other people profiles and make contact, we're not trying to be a MySpace. We are more focused on the mobility of our product and delivering solid results for staying connected on-the-go to people and happenings in any US local area and eventually globally" included Sonja Williams, Co-Founder and Application Developer.
"We've been working diligently over the past several years on mobile applications. We felt that taking a chance to get ahead of the curve would yield to be highly effective for a generation of users that can't leave home without their PDA or cellular phone." said the 27 year-old, Co-Founder and Director of Technology, Leo Larkpor.
Williams, also head of interactive marketing and web development agency ShockTheory, is credited for the development of ScreamTour.com which experienced over 250,000 unique youth registrations online for the largest urban musical tour in history. ShockTheory clients have included the Recording Academy, Schiefflin and Somerset - home of brands such as Tanquery and Hennessey, and Ford Motor Company.
