I read on Tech Crunch about Fwix – a regional aggregator of data among many common website such as Twitter, Craigslist, Flickr, etc. In other words, the site let’s you get a snapshot of activity in your local region from users of these sites. The beta version has 5 large metro areas. If you visit the site it will look a lot like Facebook. Part of the reason is the guy who created Fwix was with Facebook in the early stages of the successful web company.

I emailed Fwix asking them to include Roanoke/Blacksburg and I got an email back quickly saying they are releasing 20 more cities next week. Again, we asked for them to consider adding our region to the mix cause we suggested we needed this technology more than the larger metros. As a result, they agreed to add Roanoke next week!

“I’ll add Roanoke to the cities we’re launching next week.  I can’t promise a very interesting feed for that area though because there isn’t much activity in your area quite yet on these sites.  Maybe yelp and a couple others but we’ll see.”

If you do not think this is important, then do you remember our region without Craigslist? People looked down on our region cause we did not have a listing. When they added it, didn’t it really feel good?

Therefore, Roanoke and Blacksburg community, here is an opportunity. Please register and sign up for Fwix. Once Roanoke is launched, then blog about it, invite your contacts to Fwix, and let’s get a first-mover advantage on this new site and showcase to the world our region. Next week, we are going to be one of only 25 cities in the U.S. featured on this site.

    There is another website like craigslist and fwix that offers the same classified ads and job listings plus covers local user-contributed news. It's called 4grabs.org.

    Because 4grabs.org doesn't define geographic communities by city name it works everywhere in the world. Posts are geo-tagged with a latitude and longitude. The search engine returns the 50 closest postings by proximity to where you choose to search and puts them on a google map so you can tell where they are.

    You can start using 4grabs.org in your community today. Just sign-up and start posting. Then spread the word.

    I think craiglist should change their website appearance. It looks like back to 90ish website.
