IC Places is a network of city based websites connecting businesses with their patrons by providing up to the minute information, delivered through an emotionally rich media experience.
IC Places is different from other social networking and reference sites because each of our city sites is a virtual portal to the entire community. Every unique aspect of the individual city's social, business, and cultural life is available right at the city's homepage. IC Places provides the entire community with a place to talk, do business and get connected. Businesses are given amazing tools to tell their story in the best way possible and browsers get unfettered access to people and businesses in each city.
IC Places provides each and every diverse aspect of a city right on the citys homepage. Part of what makes city life interesting is experiencing the diverse cultures that they are comprised of. Most social networking sites are built for one demographic, i.e. college kids, retirees, or perhaps business owners. With IC Places, people that live in a city have a place to go to be amongst their peers and explore the rest of the city at the same time just like in real life. IC Places provides users with the ability to conduct business with a local company and plan their weekend social activities all at the same time with the help of an easy to use, user-friendly interface.
www.icPlaces.com/Orlando is the perfect example of how IC Places can revolutionize working and playing in a city. Each Section really has its own demographic. Everyone from music lovers to sports fans and academics have all the information they need to go about their lives in Orlando. It is a virtual example of our real world and as people grow they will find other sections in their city to grow into. As people grow and change they can still use their IC Places city site but will find other sections that may interest them more. Many people in the real world happily live their entire life in a single city. They create roots. With most social network sites there becomes a point where you will feel out of place. With IC Places sites people can create their roots and feel an immediate and unique connection that is individually suited to the personal tastes and business needs all within their city.
To build on the sense of community, each section of each city site has its own online TV Channel that encourages the locals to become Citizen Journalists. As an example the Orlando Night Life TV Channel is just for nightlife in that city. The worldwide army of Citizen Journalist is estimated to be at 136.5 million according to a 2007 article by eMarketer, and is expected to grow to 237.7 million by 2011. Each channel allows visitors to upload their own videos from a Cell phone or online. These video connections from Citizen Journalists create a community atmosphere that ensures an ever increasing supply of cutting edge, city-specific content. All videos are approved by editors before they are aired.
