AddressTalk.com, the first hyperlocal social networking site for condominium and apartment communities, has launched with a mission to give residents a united voice, and to open up a transparent conversation between residents and building management.
Online PR News – 15-November-2013 – Bangkok – AddressTalk.com, which is free for residents and owners of individual condominiums, apartments of flats and offers a premium service at a small fee for building managers, is targeting cities where a high proportion of residents live in high-rise or multi-unit buildings.
AddressTalk.com CEO Graham Brain said the groundbreaking concept brought social networking closer to home, connecting multi-unit communities via ever-evolving hyperlocal neighborhood guides they would create for themselves, while offering tangible, real-time benefits for residents.
"AddressTalk empowers residents by giving them a united voice for the first time," Mr. Brain said. "Just the fact of knowing you will be taken seriously and listened to is a big thing, as anyone who has ever had problems with their building manager or neighbors can attest."
"I spent several years as the residents' representative on the juristic board of my condominium and the problems I saw there between aggrieved residents and an uncaring building management company were disturbing, to say the least."
"It’s what convinced me AddressTalk is an idea whose time has come, and what made me a passionate believer in the concept. For residents, knowing they can get the management's attention, state their case and get something done is a huge weight off their shoulders. For building managers, AddressTalk is about embracing transparency, showing there is nothing to hide."
AddressTalk.com uses state-of-the-art responsive design – automatically optimizing how it is viewed on any browser, platform or device, removing the need for special apps. "The design is clean, soothing and user-friendly, and above all it's safe and secure… Privacy is paramount."
But the key to AddressTalk.com’s launch and ongoing success, said Mr. Brain, would be delivering on its promise to build better communities.
"AddressTalk communities will have plenty to talk about, from creating their own hyperlocal community guides, full of tips, deals and reviews. Log in and you can discuss, debate and rate everything the community has to offer - real opinions from real people who live next door. Residents stay informed on where to wine, dine, shop and get the best deal. And we have plenty of ideas and features in the pipeline to bring even more value to residents of vertical neighborhoods."
"It's about getting people to talk in a safe, impartial and relaxed forum. There are few problems that can't be solved once you get people to relax and start a conversation."
