Delhi based Localcircles.com has announced the launch of Localcircles.com, a local social network focusing on citizens of Delhi NCR. Membership to this free online platform is strictly invitation-based.
While inaugurating the platform, Mrs. Sheila Dikshit, Chief Minister of Delhi, said,”LocalCircles is the need of the hour in cities like Delhi NCR. It is very important for both young and old people to know who their neighbors are. There is no better system to launch today in Delhi NCR than LocalCircles.”
Localcircles.com aims to allow a citizen to connect with all of their local communities (neighbors, colleagues, parents/teachers, local friends/family and common interest locals) in one place, easily find credible local information (finding a trusted pediatrician, or how to get their child admitted to a particular school) and easily seek emergency assistance (fire, medical, women safety, blood) from their local communities. It is a real identity-based trusted network that lets a citizen connect with all their local communities (neighborhood, work place, school, interests) in secure and private networks
With LocalCircles.com, residents in a society or neighborhood, parents/teachers/administrators in a school, colleagues in a workplace or locals with common interests (Expats, RWA Presidents and many others) can connect with each other through closed local social networks. Alternatively, a citizen can connect with all of their local communities described above, find credible information and seek assistance when needed from one or all of their communities.
“The entire LocalCircles platform has been designed with daily life, real identities and a trusted network in mind,” said Mukesh Gupta, President and CEO of LocalCircles. “To ensure everyone is registered with their real names, addresses and contact details, they have to be invited either by LocalCircles or by an existing LocalCircles user. LocalCircles selects neighborhoods, schools and workplaces based on demographics or user requests and then invites all the members within these communities via a personalized invitation that includes a unique sign up code. The unique sign up code ensures that a Defense Colony resident only joins the Defense colony neighborhood network and not the Friends Colony network,” he added. Once the user is registered they can find their work place, school and other interest-based circles.
Abhishek Gupta, CTO of LocalCircles said,”There are now close to 2000 local businesses listed on LocalCircles and the best part is, a business cannot pay to be listed on LocalCircles, they have to be good.”
Soon, LocalCircles.com will reach out to citizens of Delhi NCR via their neighborhood, workplace or child’s school. Interested users can send their registration requests by signing up on LocalCircles website.
