New Social Networking Site Aims to Connect the Disconnected

WizeNation promotes living locally

KITCHENER, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - Oct. 15, 2012) - A new social networking website, WizeNation.com, has been launched, connecting people with their local community. WizeNation aims to be used as a tool to utilize local businesses and support your community. Between connecting neighbours and acting as a localized search engine WizeNation helps people take advantage of their community resources.

As a society, we are now more open to connect with someone online than ever. WizeNation's mission is to connect the public with their neighbors, locals, and surrounding businesses. It emphasizes the importance of knowing whom your neighbors are and what your community has to offer.

WizeNation offers a different social media experience than the typical friend and follower formula. According WizeNation's founder, Asim Siddiqui, "It is an open network. You will be able to contact and connect with anyone in your neighborhood and city without any "friend" requests. Local businesses can create a page (Wizepage) to promote their business and offer promotional deals in just one post."

WizeNation has now been launched for the public. It is configured globally to help the public to locate a desired search within a 15 km radius. The key to the location is the postal/zip code. To sign up the user enters a postal/code and they will be able to see other users from their city, including neighbors and businesses. Furthermore, the user will be able search for another person, skill, interest, or business in the search box.


WizeNation is a location based social bulletin board where users can connect with their neighbors, local businesses, and people with similar interest. Like a bulletin board, a user can post any kind of message or promotion and you can expect a reply below your comment from people in your area.
