Using state of art data aggregation , cross validation engine & big data, Localblox is bringing neighborhoods together in one platform with integrated social, local & mobile tools

local blox

LocalBlox has been taking advantage of big data to build from the ground up Sabira Arefin’s dream of connection over 100k neighborhoods on one platform. The project itself is sort of like the yellow pages with a twist. Businesses that use LocalBlox increase their presence around the area they connect with use of mobile apps, social widgets and media and SEO.

The CEO, Sabrira, had no idea how much effort the entire project would be when she first started to realize her dream. Only her love for the project is what made the project come to life utilizing big data. Today, one hundred twelve thousand neighborhoods have been connected by using big data. All of the data used can be seen by the average internet surfer to find a new restaurant they were unaware of in their local area or any other gems in the area.

One of the great features of LocalBlox is that they let you have a view of where you are going if you are going to travel before you even get to your location. Never again will you have a day on the road where you are not sure where to eat and what kind of food is available. Through LocalBlox you are able to find the very best in the local neighborhoods you are in or part of. The way they lay out a view of the neighborhood and business is tip notch and lays it out in a way that is fun as well as simple.

Not only does LocalBlox lay out the different restaurants in the area (which is my favorite feature), they also lay out a few other businesses. These include grocery stores, playgrounds, schools, department stores, gyms, movie theaters, as well as places to shop.

If you have not yet checked out this startup that is making headlines, go give it a try and you may find yourself wanting to go out and see a place you have not noticed was right around the corner!
