Note to Editors:
Social networking has changed our lives. Now with just a few clicks you can connect with people all over the world. That’s certainly what it seems like but, then again, when you think about it, just how connected are we? Is social networking really social enough? We don’t think so. Being truly social means a lot more than sitting in front of a screen clicking “like” and posting funny photos, videos, links and chatting with people you’ll probably never meet. We’re more interested in truly social interactions, with real people around the block and around the world. That’s why we’ve created Wozityou!
Be active. Be social. Get Spotted!
