kc web design Kent and streetlife.com

 

 

 

 

 

kc web design kent are proud to be working with the amazing streetlife.com – the local social network – as their new web design partner. Exciting times ahead for streetlife.com and a huge amount for kc web design Kent to do on the design side but its all going to be fantastic fun and a lot of hard work.

As a slightly less enthusiastic user of Facebook, its great to see a new social network thats taping into something thats the essence of all social interaction in the real world – location and proximity. Having a 100 friends on Facebook from all over the world is all very nice and Facebook is great for that, but ultimately, we all still live in a house in a local community and sometimes its harder to connect with the people 3 doors down than it is to chat with our friends half way across the planet. Streetlife.com changes all this and turns the social network on its head by making it local, making it all about YOUR local community and surrounding area. Here’s what streetlife.com say…

Streetlife, the local social network, has a simple aim: to help people across Britain make the most of where they live by connecting with nearby residents, groups, organisations and businesses. streetlife.com provides an easy way for locals to share practical information, advice, opinions, skills and resources. People sign up using their postcode, and can start and join conversations with neighbours. Users can customise their settings so they control how much information they receive, the areas they’re interested in, and what they share about themselves.

kc web design Kent will be working with streetlife.com on all sorts of design related goodness from print and new media to working on new features and redesigning the user interface. We hope to take a great product and make it even better! Over the next 12 months user numbers should be increasing by a huge amount and the design of the website and UI will be updated and adapted with the user growth. Lots to do, pens and paper at the ready!

Over the next few months, as the website changes and we start designing in new UI elements and features I’ll be writing more about how kc web design kent are working on the UI for a large social network, the problems we come across and the solutions we come to. Very, very exciting times ahead…
