BuzzMob is a location-based platform that brings social media communication to real-world places and events. It connects with your current location and puts you in touch with the people around you in a real-time, live community. Mobsters within the same location are instantly connected, to talk; share tips, photos, and media; and receive exclusive content from within a digital network. BuzzMob’s real-time social networking platform is changing the way we experience and interact with the everyday world.
We all love to have a voice and be heard, to feel essential to a group. Isn’t that why we share our thoughts and activities via social media in the first place? The problem is that in the fragmented world we live in, how do we get that message to the right people at the right time, so someone sees it… and maybe responds? BuzzMob gets your content to the right people at the right time, whether they’re your ’friends’ or not.
Wouldn’t it be great if for once your digital life were more organized than your physical life? Does it matter more where content comes from, or what it’s actually about? BuzzMob is solving the social content fragmentation problem via #LocationCuration. We use your location as the primary interest indicator, curate content around that location, and bring it to you in an easy to digest format.
Consuming social media content is like drinking from a firehose. You are constantly inundated with content, but that content rarely hits you at the right time and place. For example, when you are sitting at a concert, do you want to see pictures of kittens or pictures of what’s happening around you at that moment? BuzzMob allows you to discover the most relevant and actionable content regardless of current activity, even if you are at a cat show.
Since BuzzMob is all about the importance and power of a community, it’s no surprise that our team at BuzzMob is a community unparalleled.
Two years ago, our founder was sitting in the stands at a Los Angeles Angels baseball game when he had a vision. He imagined this sea of 45,000 strangers all being connected, digitally, to share this experience of the game in unison. Since that day, our goal has remained the same, and our passion to unite a community has spread as the team behind BuzzMob has grown in number.
Our product and service is propelled forward every day by an amazing group of people who constantly pour their hearts and souls into every step of this journey.
