About AroundTheWay:

AroundTheWay(ATW) is a social network with a focus on location based content with the goal of connecting people to people from city to city. Users can type in any city in the world and get live updates from users that live in that city. You’ll be able to see blogs, videos, photos, events and even outfits created by users in the city, giving users are clear sense and understanding of what people in that city like.

Video chatting is available for up to four people at a time, which users can use while browsing the site without interruption. In addition, there is a radio station that allows you to hear music from the city of your choice. All songs are uploaded by the members of the site, so you will get an insight as to what is the most popular songs to the people in that city. There is a dressing room on the site where users can pick from any piece of clothing and create their own outfits. You can pick clothes, shoes, hats, etc. This dressing room in a social network aims to revolutionize the way people “window shop” and ultimately purchase clothing as people can put an outfit together and see exactly how it would look together without having to physically go into a store and trying outfits themselves.

Small businesses also have a place on the site. They will be able to place ads based on location – so the ads will only show in the city the business is in. This will ensure that when a user visits a city, the ads that will display are only from businesses in that community.

Currently patent pending – dressing room, location based content, radio, video chat in a social network.

    How would you use the site in your every day life? Just from a brief checking out of this site, I would have to say this would be something I could really use while traveling for my businesses.  I own businesses in several cities and it would be great if I knew ahead of time what I should definitely be checking out when I arrive.   I would also use it to connect with employees, friends and families.    I probably would use it to advertise job openings for my businesses as well.
    Do you like how the site allows users to virtually travel to any city in the world? Yes.  I have relatives over seas, so it would definitely be fun to add that city network amongst family members and friends alike.
    What do you find useful in traveling to other cities in the world and connecting with people from that city? I am not really understanding what you are asking for with this question, but what I would find useful in using this site to virtually travel to other cities is the fact that I can network for employees and the job while obtaining business contacts, social contacts and the like.  I find it useful as well to learn about new cultures, societies, etc, while having a virtual feel of me actually being there an experiencing the city.  It helps with socialization skills and always new marketing ideas.  I can get a feel of how other people do things…. all while doing it virtually!!
    How do you like the Dressing Room? This is a very fun feature that will draw in the targeted age group.  It’s always fun to create your own outfits, being able to see them displayed together.
    Do you see yourself trying out clothes (virtually) and ultimately purchasing clothes from this dressing room? Of course.   I think this is  something that I would enjoy.  I can see what it looks like, what it looks put together with various other clothing items.  Yes, if I like the way it looks, I would definitely be willing to buy the outfit!
    The additional features of this website are definitely exciting to me.  I love the chats,  I love the fact that I can ask questions for other members and interact with them either way.  It’s definitely an inviting feature that I can post ads, start a Blog, create a wardrobe, meet new people.  Overall, I am totally excited to get started using this site!!

    Feedback sought:
     

    How would you use the site in your every day life?

    The first think I did when I opened the site, is to look in the menu at the left of the page. I clicked on the Music category. I saw that inside this big category there is a lot of small categories of music genres. I took a look in some category and I listened to some musicians. I think I will use the music category and the videos category, that also seems to be interesting and nice.

    Do you like how the site allows users to virtually travel to any city in the world?

    Yes, I like it. But It took a long time until I found a city with some information – music, outfits…
    In the music category I wrote Tokyo and there was no music at all. So I tried another city – Paris, and – nothing shown up.
    I was a little bit dissapointed.

    What do you find useful in traveling to other cities in the world and connecting with people from that city?

    I think it can be very useful. It will be fun toconnect with people from the other side of the world. But its not speical. I meant, I can connect with people all over the world in Facebook, Twitter, and with my E-mail.

    How do you like the Dressing Room?

    I liked it very much. I saw a lot of nice clothes, and I clicked on some od them. I was happy that I could see the name of the clothes company (nike, ralph lauren) and the specific model name.

    Do you see yourself trying out clothes (virtually) and ultimately purchasing clothes from this dressing room?

    I can see myself purchasing some of the clothes from the dressing room, but I dont use to buy from the Internet so Im not 100% sure.

    Please share any additional feedback/comments you might have.

    I like the site. I think it may be more colorful and that will attract people to it. Also, I think there is tiny information of cities except New York.
