WizeNation is a location based social bulletin board where users can connect with their neighbours, local businesses, and people with similar interest. Like a bulletin board for a building, a user can post any kind of message for example: "I am selling my house" , "I would like to borrow a ladder" , "I lost my cat (attach a picture)", and you can expect a reply below your comment from people in your postal/zip code area, and / or anyone in your city.
WizeNation is divided into four streams (tabs):
- Wizinity: This tab shows all the feeds published by the people residing in your city.
- My Wizi: This tab shows the feeds published by the people in your postal/zip code area, feeds from your contacts, and feeds based on your interests.
- Biz Wiz: This tab shows feeds from the business community of your city.
- Search: This tab is used for specific searches. For example you can search using keywords such as 'Autoshop', 'Plumber', 'Landscaping' etc. and you will get local businesses and people based on your search. You can even search for people and business names, for instance 'John Doe' or 'Tasty Treats'.
WizeNation consists of the following entities:
- Notifications: All user notifications/alerts will be located here. You will get notifications/alert s if someone replies to your comment, and when you receive a request to add contacts.
- Messages: All inbox/direct messaging will be composed here. User should use direct messaging to exchange private information like email, address or phone numbers.
- Contacts: Shows a list of all the people and businesses selected by you.
- My Profile: All your personal information that you would like to share in public will be listed here. Please fill skills and interest fields in order to be searched by like- minded people. If someone is looking for a baby sitter and you have 'baby sitter' in your skill or interest then your name will appear in the search tab.
- My WizePages: You can create your own webpage in WizeNation. You can create a page for your business and offer deals by commenting on this page. Your deals will be viewed by your city residents in the Biz Wiz stream. The key idea related to WizePage, is the 'watchwords' field. Insert some key words relating to the nature of your business for instance, if you are a web developer, insert key words like website, developer etc.
This will make your WizePage appear in the search tab if anyone is searching for 'web developer' in your city.
Special Request from the founder of WizeNation:
WizeNation was launched on February 24th, 2012 and like any other infant social network it will need time to grow. Please don't be dismayed by the fact that there is no activity in your location. If you are the first one to sign-up in your city you won't see any comments. To make this website active, kindly spread the word about WizeNation in your neighborhood, school, or work, so a maximum number of people can sign-up and feed information pertinent to their interests.
Thank you for signing up. Build and enjoy a wise nation of your own.
