BlockAvenue released a major update on its platform promising to bring “social + local” to a whole new level. Now, when users scan a particular neighborhood to find out “who’s talking about what,” they will be able to see the most active conversations happening around them at that very instant. The topics can be as diverse as, a discussion about a local coffee shop, restaurant or recent crime; users will be able to find out what other users are commenting, and most importantly why.
Other neat features:
- Local Talk: *New* Start a general conversation with your neighbors right on the map – just drop a pin!
- Rate & Review: Lay down the law and let others know what you think about your neighborhood.
- Report a Problem: *New* Need the city’s help to get a pothole fixed or some graffiti removed? Just report a problem.
