Game-Changing Social App Uses Patented Technology to Uncover Real-Time Local Trends at SXSW 2015


Washington, DC (PRWEB) March 13, 2015

Zoom Social, a social networking app created by Locus Social Inc., will be present at SXSW Interactive 2015 to debut its official launch in the iTunes store. Zoom Social is designed to display social media’s top trending topics through real-time and location-based photos and text content. Users can discover what is popular in real-time and in any area across the globe through Zoom Social’s interactive map.

“People descend upon Austin every year for SXSW for a lot of reasons, but two of them stand out: they want to hang out with their industry friends and discover trends. It is easy to get lost in the crowd at a city-wide event like SXSW,” said Shaofeng Yang, co-founder of Locus Social Inc. “Zoom Social serves as a social discovery map app that ups the ante by letting you see exactly where your friends and interesting people are and what they are talking about.”

“Thanks to Zoom Social’s impressive patent-pending technology, we have the fastest processing engine to efficiently assess trending location-based real-time data and arrange it into one user-friendly design.”

Zoom Social’s patent pending social discovery engine helps users find the needles in the haystack amongst public and friends’ conversations by assembling its information from Twitter, and soon Facebook, Instagram and Pinterest; presenting the user with more easily digested content. Real-time discussions are viewable, and centered on location-based photos and communicate directly with others who are engaged in the content.

During SXSW, users will be able to walk down the street and see what is going on far beyond the context of Twitter thanks to Zoom Social’s integration efforts with music and other event ticketing sites.

The Zoom Social team will be hosting a rock band karaoke night at the WeDC House (across the street from the Austin Convention Center) on Monday from 6-9 pm. They will also be participating in the SXSW Music Hackathon.

“We anticipate that interesting people, musicians and speakers will take advantage of Zoom Social’s fan discovery and interactive conversation features as well – for example: musicians can see which of their fans are in Austin for SXSW, interact with them, and identify fans they are not following already,” says Yang. “Zoom Social may just turn out to be the ultimate fan discovery app for musicians and speakers seeking to break out at the 2015 SXSW festival.”
