Fuzgo: Social Networking with Neighbors

Posted on 4.15.2008
Vancouver-based Fuzgo is a new social networking site focused on promoting community interaction and involvement. Creating a personal or business profile allows users to connect with those around them, view local event listings, classifieds and join local online communities - business districts, community watch, lost and found, musicians, activities, etc. It all takes place through a map interface, where users can elect to display their location.

"We feel social networking sites are too broad, too general.  It is great that people from all over the world can connect to their friends, but what about the people and businesses in their own neighborhood? We don't really touch people around us." says Zeeshan Hayat,  Fuzgo's CEO.

Scheduled to go live at the end of April, Fuzgo also has a video creation service that enables those with business profiles to create online video ads targeted to the local community. And there is a charitable factor to the website as well. Through the Fuzgo Cares Network, members can donate $1 per month to be distributed to partnering charities - so far that appears to be the Covenent House Vancouver and BC Children's Hospital. By participating on the site, you can earn Care Points, which go towards qualifying for a Trip of Mercy. "We believe this initiative can change the world, one profile at a time" says Zeeshan.
