About Us

What is LocalBol

LocalBol is meant to be a platform for locals to reach out for sharing content, skills, thoughts, business propositions with the local community (microcosms) or those interested in the happenings of a particular location in vernacular and any other language. For those accessing content created or uploaded by other users, he/she can choose to view content based on the specific moods and specific location with range as small a radius as a 1km from their current or chosen location to as wide as the whole city, state or country.

LocalBol promotes passion, talent and its expression besides facilitating the user to utilize their skills, knowledge and experience to create, share and consume various types of content that are locally relevant, inspirational, useful, and topical to the locality and in the process helps locals to gain respect among other locals.

Vision

Local communities have the required resources and skills within their communities to empower themselves. LocalBol as a platform will increase local connectedness and lead to sustainable communities optimising resources and coming together for their own education, skilling, entertainment, business information, mentoring and organising for local action, events and activities.

Our Core Beliefs

In the era of regular social media chatter, many efforts of individuals to showcase their business, talents, passions or marketable skills get lost in the noise as it doesn’t target individuals from the specific local community therefore not reaching an audience that will amplify the content that translates for economic or social empowerment of the individual or community and is left to fly around the web. Therefore hyperlocal communities and communication is crucial to identifying and garner the strengths, support and culture of the local community for its improvement.
