Connect and Explore: New Social Networking Site for Neighbors
Web designers develop exclusive network of friendships both online and offline
Fairfax, VA, December 4, 2012: Sydney Bernstein-Miller, RL Social Media Coordinator, is closely working with residentlinks.com to develop a new social networking site that allows neighbors to connect and explore their community. The beta site currently allows one to join and start conversations among fellow residents and exchange opinions or provide solutions to issues relevant to the community. The website is free to join and completely secure; allowing individuals to privately message one another should they chose. Members can feel safe in exchanging information while getting to know those in the neighborhood. Besides the ability of building lasting relationships among neighbors, the website also offers members a chance to create events and organize gatherings in helping better create a sense of community. “If you’re like me, when you meet someone new, you don’t want to just add a friend, like on Facebook, you want to make a friend and then you want to see that friend regularly,” said Sydney Bernstein-Miller. “What’
Bernstein-Miller recently interviewed Founder and Chairman of the Board, Giuseppe Carabelli about his passion for residentlinks. “I think that everybody, deep inside, has the same feeling about community and, subliminally, they believe having a good community is really important for the growth of a family, protection, and for transforming a house to a home. The problem is, people have yet a tool to validate that idea.
“ResidentLinks is there to support the people who just need the tools to realize their ideas about community are correct. I think people would be amazed by the type of information out there now and what a website can provide for them. There are little things that people wish they could do to meet their neighbors, but they’re not going to knock on everyone’s door and say, ‘Hey, where do you work? Let’s carpool!’ But if we provide neighbors with a tool they are more prone to using, such as a website, then neighbors can realize, ‘Oh wow, we can really do that!”
Bernstein-Miller currently is webmaster on blog.residentlinks.com, another community based website that offers tips and information on building a stronger community.
