CTIA Launch Alert: Social Media Platform Fosters Hyperlocal Conversation and Activities

Gotootie Connects Users Within a Location, via the Web From Any Computer, Android or iPhone Device

ORLANDO, FL--(Marketwire - March 22, 2011) - With today's launch of social media platform, Gotootie, people can now connect with others nearby to share information and discover new relationships and events around them. Gotootie makes it simple for members to quickly connect to the people and information in their location via the web from their computer, Android, or iPhone device. Members can instantly communicate with other members around them by sharing information in real-time or leaving messages for their friends and the community to discover and enjoy.

To begin, new members of Gotootie are randomly assigned an ID to protect privacy, but can opt to display a name and micro profile. From there, members can start or join a hyperlocal conversation or group. Further customization, connection and messaging can be established based on a person's interests and kinship ties. In a location, members can chose to interact exclusively with friends or simply unite with others based on their proximity.

"Gotootie was born after experiencing our own difficulties with trying to meet the right people with similar interests around us," said Kyle Steele, founder and CEO of Gotootie. "We expedite a person's ability to identify relevant information and increase the speed of interaction by leveraging location."

Gotootie also provides businesses with the opportunity to promote their products and have conversations with their customers within the platform through real-time messaging to a highly targeted, localized group of users. In addition, users can give feedback and recommendations for restaurants, bars, stores, etc. "Location-based services is playing an increasingly prominent role in the traditional business model," said Cliff Rogers, founding partner for The Other Bar. "By creating a service that allows us to interact in real-time with the people in our location, Gotootie has taken the benefit of location-based communication to a new level, fostering business growth."
