Geomium puts the Social back into Social Networking
London, United Kingdom – London based Geomium have come to the rescue of the sociable iPhone user with the introduction of a complete set of real time location based social services and the ultimate local content. With the launch of Geomium for iPhone and iPod touch, users are getting a mobile version of next-generation social network, letting them discover their surroundings and meet people on the go.
Geomium is a true socializing tool. Whilst existing apps may call themselves social, only Geomium is designed for people who want to leave their house and go do something fun. Geomium is created to literally take everyone out, show great local venues and discover money saving deals, while letting everyone have a good time.
As a geosocial application Geomium is powered by a plethora of content partners, providing comprehensive location information, including over 4 million events, 5 millions reviews and 100,000 discount vouchers. All pertinent location based information is displayed on a map, showing the user “what’s going on around them.” The app tells users where their friends are as well as new people in the area and lets everyone share public recommendations and “what’s happening’s” with location based ‘Shouts’ and private internal messaging.
Geomium revamps the notion of a classic social network. From now on social networking is getting even more social than ever. Instead of sitting at home on a traditional social network, with Geomium users are able to check out the hot new band playing down the street or meet that cute single at the local bar.
Geomium provides great advertising opportunities for local businesses allowing them to promote special offers to potential customers in their area, in real time.
“Geomium is an app that stands out above the noise. Geomium is something the mass consumer really wants and needs and not just another game where you collect badges. From London to New York we hope to revolutionize the way people communicate and interact.” – said Michael Ferguson, CEO of Geomium.
