That's the premise behind the creation and launch of OffsetX.
Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) August 26, 2008
OffsetX.com (http://www.offsetX.com ), a network of social action and entertainment Web sites, today announced the launch of the company's first family of OffsetX Web sites - OffsetObama.com and OffsetMcCain.com. The Web sites enable supporters of Senators Barack Obama and John McCain to offset the actions and support provided by enthusiasts of opposing political camps through actions of their own, providing an engaging forum to express opinions, take action to counteract offsetting views, create their own Offset communities and otherwise effect change.
The initial launch of OffsetX.com will focus primarily on the political polarities that continue to grow between supporters of the two major-party candidates, offering ardent political enthusiasts and first-time voters alike the ability to keep up with the latest news affecting the presidential race, as well as provide opportunities for them to voice their opinions for and against their choices of candidates. As with all OffsetX Web sites, the first family of political Web sites features a unique capability for users to easily create their own Offset communities for offsetting opposing candidates in upcoming state and local political races.
"Why stop at carbon offsets, when you can offset anything?" asks Mike Smith, co-founder and CEO of OffsetX. "That's the premise behind the creation and launch of OffsetX." "OffsetX is taking the burgeoning social networking phenomenon to a whole new level," continued Smith, "first by establishing vertical social networks built around communities of fervent shared interests and opinions, and secondly by extending these shared experiences to engage participation and actions that both entertain as well as effect change."
OffsetX.com Web sites are characterized by their rich interactive content and the ability of OffsetX members to participate in and contribute to that shared content. Unlike traditional social networking sites, OffsetX Web sites feature daily news feeds, virtually immediate updates from fellow members regarding opinions, activities and Offset actions, results tallied and posted for daily featured Offsets and user polls, etc.
This political-oriented marketing launch of OffsetX.com will be followed quickly by a family of sports-based OffsetX Web sites, first concentrating heavily on the passionate college football fan base. Fans of virtually any major college football team will be able to participate in and contribute to offsetting traditional and emerging rivalries. An easy-to-use template will enable fans of any level or sport to create and contribute to their own OffsetX rivalries. Other rivalries and corresponding Offset actions will be developed in the environmental, humanities, entertainment and business arenas.
