Eventseeker App Turns Social Networks into Active Networks Friends Can Find Things to Do, Make Plans, Buy Tickets to All Types of Events; Company to Celebrate Launch by Giving Away VIP Tickets to Coachella Festival Business Wire SAN FRANCISCO -- March 14, 2013 Wcities, Inc., a leading global provider of city and event guides, today launched eventseeker, a mobile app that enables individuals to quickly search for activities in their cities, invite friends to join them at events, and purchase tickets for concerts, sporting events, festivals, museum exhibitions, theater shows, nightclubs and community activities. Eventseeker is a free app for iPhones. It is available at the Apple App Store and on the web at eventseeker.com. Eventseeker can be used as a standalone app to search for events, buy tickets, and follow artists, or users can log into eventseeker via Facebook to take advantage of the app’s social capabilities. A short video explaining the app’s features and functionality is available on YouTube. “Eventseeker adds a completely new dimension to social networking by enabling friends to actually do things together,” said Fraser Campbell, CEO of Wcities. “We’re unlocking the power of Facebook to become truly social. After all, what’s more social than getting a bunch of friends together for a concert or a baseball game or dancing at your favorite club?” Through its unique passive personalization, eventseeker scans a user’s Facebook account to understand the person’s interests, such as their taste in music, their favorite sports teams, events they’ve attended, and artists they’re following. The app also scans the music library on a user’s mobile device for additional information about the user’s preferences. This allows eventseeker to serve up targeted alerts and recommendations about upcoming events. Eventseeker’s smart technology enables the app to identify and recommend friends in a user’s social network who have similar interests, making it fast and simple for the user to invite those people to upcoming events. To celebrate the eventseeker launch, Wcities is giving away VIP tickets to the Coachella Festival, one of the world’s largest music and arts events. Anyone interested in a chance to win tickets can enter the online drawing on Facebook. The eventseeker database is continuously updated with millions of searchable events worldwide. Users can search for events by location, date, venue, artist and event type. The app allows users to view pictures, video and information about events and artists. And in addition to allowing users to invite friends to events, users can mark the events they’re planning to attend so friends who decide to join them at the last minute can easily do so.
