While social media apps were originally designed to better connect us to other people, they can also have the side-effect of making us obsess over people on our virtual networks rather than our own immediate physical environments, an issue that the BuzzLoop neighbourhood app hopes to resolve.
Developed by a pair of young innovators from Northeastern University, the app helps people share information with their communities. The information can include parking tips, thoughts on the fortunes of the local sports team, restaurant reviews and other hyper-local information.
While it's great to use social media to learn about what's happening at the other end of the world, there's also an important utility in using app technologies to engage with your immediate community, which is precisely what the BuzzLooop neighbourhood app promotes.
