WARSAW, August 22, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --
PlaceKnow.com is a new social network that allows travellers and staycationers to see and search locations around the world before they visit.
The website allows its users to see a location before they visit from the viewpoint of the people already there. The portal hopes to help local cities and local businesses to demonstrate where they are and what services they can offer to potential tourists, and to help people enjoy the diversity of this world.
Placeknow.com users are predominantly those who enjoy travelling and sharing their experience with other people . Photos are assigned to a specific location by our users, with the aim of building a pictorial atlas of the world. We also offer people who are unable to travel for whatever reason the opportunity to view their dream destinations.
"We are humbled by the overwhelming response from our users from around the world," says CEO and co-founder Lukasz Sobanski. "It provides great encouragement to continue developing the platform and delivering more value for our users."
"As the international travel market changes, people need information to help influence their choices and there is no better way than through photographs. PlaceKnow.com offers a true reflection of the look and feel of a destination. Our aim is help people make informed travel choices," he added.
PlaceKnow.com has also begun to cooperate with the world's largest student network AIESEC, which has over 110 offices globally. It has also entered into a media partnership with Travel Channel to support its competitions, which are organised and administered by PlaceKnow.com.
PlaceKnow.com aims to be the largest social travel network in the world. The company's vision is to create "one place to see places from around the world from the view of the people in the world". Already over 350,000 photos have been uploaded onto the website - a phenomenal figure in such a short space of time. Launched in March 2012 and privately held, PlaceKnow.com has its office in Plock, Poland. The company employs seven people and supports a rapidly growing community from around the world.
