Hotlist is a location-based social media platform that helps friends coordinate plans and discover what’s going on today, tomorrow, and throughout the week at millions of venues worldwide.
By following Friends, Places, and Brands, users receive personalized notifications and suggestions that cater to their specific social interests.
With Hotlist’s Planner, users can quickly and easily determine the most convenient time and place for Facebook friends to meet up via their smartphone or the web.
Users can take “virtual peeks” inside of places and see Facebook profile photos of the expected crowd, girl/guy ratio, and which of their friends plan to be there (even if they’re not on Hotlist).
Hotlist uses over 110 million people’s plans to provide social information on over 3 million venues in more than 40,000 cities. Hotlist makes social decisions easier by pulling public data from Facebook and Twitter and customizing it for each user based on their geo-location and social preferences.
