Stamford, CT (PRWEB) September 2, 2009
TownBug.com has launched a network of 23 "Local Social Buzz" websites offering "hyperlocal" content to Fairfield County-area towns such as Wilton (wilton.townbug.com) and Greenwich (greenwich.townbug.com). The sites offer Twitter tweets, news, event info, social media, classifieds and even gas prices targeted to each area and driven by content from internet giants like Google, Twitter, YouTube, Zillow, Yokel, Yelp, Meetup, Flickr and Craigslist.
"The Internet Just Came Home" is the TownBug.com mantra. It is a way to express what many key internet futurists feel is the next evolutionary step of the the web, called "Hyperlocal". Let's break this down: We know that "local" generally means going to the supermarket, the doctor, the movie theater, the car dealer, restaurants, florists, etc. and also refers to services, businesses, government and other things local - in your city, town, village, neighborhood or block. Now, combine that with the term "Hyper" which describes the on-demand never ending flow of information and content best represented by services like Twitter and YouTube, and there you have "hyperlocal".
To experience TownBug.com's vision of Hyperlocal, simply enter the name of your town followed by ".townbug.com" into your web browser (ex. wilton.townbug.com) and upon arrival you will see a collection of internet giants like Google, Twitter, Flickr and Craigslist, banded together on one page, brought down to a local level and generating local only results. They call this "Local Social Buzz" and yes, from Greenwich, CT to Sherman, CT - all 23 towns in Fairfield County have their own TownBug.
The internet's first web stars like Yahoo and ICQ started by serving a small yet global community. In the early days, there were not enough users on the net to justify a website to service every country in the world. Today we can boast a site for not just every country (Google.com.co - Google Colombia), but every city (Boston.com).
In the last two years, Social Media sites like Facebook, YouTube and other user driven services have done for the internet what reality shows did for TV, it brought the masses to a personal level and now, it's time to take it to the local level. Twitter taught us the importance of asking the question "What are you doing?" TownBug.com feels the next and equally important question is "Where are you doing it?"
Townbug.com is 100% organically grown by Mayupi.com. Founded in 2000 by Federico Lara ViCaDi, Mayupi.com has grown from being a one man think lab to a Web 3.0 technology group with offices in the US, Peru, Colombia and Costa Rica.
