Whenpages is a global time based platform for creating, sharing and discovering events in the past present and future. The site focuses on publicising events around the world and focuses on user-generated content that can then be shared on leading social networks like Facebook and Twitter for additional exposure and reach.
While anyone can create an event for free, primary content contributors naturally include artists, event planners, venue owners and marketing and PR companies who can choose from a selection of 18 categories in which to place their content.
We would like to connect people using events that happen around them. When people find something in common between them, communities are built.
We have realised the power of a single event or isolated events that can bring people together. Hence our emphasis on a time based platform unlike other start-ups. We also have business model that we wish to implement after the Public Beta phase.
An feature available on the platform is the Checkin and Checkout feature which allows users to apply the “Passerby-witness-concept” where you do not need to ‘friend’ or ‘follow’ someone to participate in their conversation. Once you Checkin to a conversation, you can comment on it and have it appear in your stream and as soon as you are no longer interested can simply Checkout.
The process of uploading or discovering events on Whenpages involves a simple six step process with a friendly user-interface. Once you have registered using the simple registration process and created a profile page with photo and wall that streams recent activity, events and recent pages, you gain access into the Live Blogging feature, events, other users and recommended events for you.
As for future developments, Whenpages is looking into integrating the live blog function with event creation which will automatically generate a live blog with every event uploaded that just needs activation. The platform will also be focusing on the mobile site as well as mobile apps for iOS, Android and cross platforms
