HulaHub: Social networking gets more cultured and artsy
Most of the social media types I know are a cultured bunch. They know more about movies and music and writing and whatnot than any ten people I know offline. But for all of that brainpower, there’s still a lack of experts with deep knowledge in some areas of the arts.
Long story short, the artists aren’t as involved—or as supported by—social networking as they should be. Until now.
Introducing Portland-based HulaHub, a new social networking service—that includes both a Web and iPhone presence—designed to get the art crowd more involved in the social Web.
What’s that? You’re even more cultured than I thought? Well then, start sharing all of that cultural knowledge with your friends with HulaHub.
Come watch a demo of the new HulaHub site and iPhone app. These exciting tools enable art lovers to find local cultural events and tell the world about their experiences.
Sound interesting? Well, you’re invited to the HulaHub launch party. But I hope you’re dressed. Because it’s happening in a few hours. So scoot scoot little bug.
I know. I hear you. How is HulaHub any different than a Ning site? Well, it has to do with the people behind the site, Box Office Tickets, a Portland-based ticketing system that has been supporting the arts since 1993.
Box Office Tickets Inc. has been empowering the event and entertainment industry through innovative “back of the house” services since 1993. Known for the quality of its customer service and technology, boxofficetickets.com® is a national brand with proven experience in handling all types of events — the arts, sports, business conferences and non-profit fund-raisers. Through its boxofficetickets.com® and RoBOT® technologies, Box Office Tickets provides a complete range of reliable and affordable solutions for order processing, admission control and data management services.
And I think it’s that knowledge of the industry that’s going to set them apart from competitors in this little venture.
Again, sorry for the short notice. But do swing by the launch event if you can. I’m looking forward to some highly cultured tweets and insights from you.
