About Close By Me

"it's a simple idea really: allow users to tie content to a location, and then let other users search for that content based on their own location"

Close by Me (CBM) is an online community allowing users to create postings: messages, notifications, announcements, etc. The content is then associated with a general location (postal/zip code). Other users in the community can search for information based on their own location, area of coverage (radius or distance from them) and items of interest, in close proximity or far beyond their own city.

Postings can be anything from jobs, sale items, rant and raves, discussions, personals, real estate, activity groups, services, etc. CBM is in essence a combination of interactive classifieds, notifications and discussion groups. CBM is an innovative twist on an old idea, it differentiates its self by allowing people to search for items of interest by their location and proximal distance, thereby changing the relevance of the results in what they are looking for (hence the name "Close By Me"). Each step in CBM allows users to expand and change their search by hopping from one location or category to the next. Through each step, message by message, users can continue an open journey that may meander thru different categories, locations, and points of interest.

Close by Me (CBM) was launched in the spring of 2009, which explains the relatively low amount of messages in the system.

The best is yet to come!
