January 11, 2009

The new website provides a comprehensive online forum to track the growing region’s happenings.

Bangalore, India (PRnine – January 10, 2009) – MyBangalore.com has checked into the internet and now offers all that is hip from the past, hype from the present and will be hot for the future of Bangalore City. MyBangalore.com is a web based media portal that allows Users access to all the information they could be on the lookout for. Bangalore’s strong global presence has already catapulted the city into new Business arenas and opportunities. High End Labels, pulsating Events and new energy in Education is all on offer for the Bangalorean. MyBangalore.com delves into all top drawer aspects and issues related to Art and Culture, Lifestyle, Entertainment, Events, Education and City News.

Apart from being a content/information site, MyBangalore.com also offers itself as a marketplace allowing easy access to Classifieds, Special Offers, Jobs, Real Estate Info etc.,

MyBangalore.com was launched mid-October of 2008 by DoubleSpring Media India (P) Ltd. It was first released in Private Alpha. At that time, user registration was by invitation-only. However, on 1st December 2008 MyBangalore.com opened to the Public and the website is currently in Beta.

MyBangalore.com is looking to provide Bangaloreans and people who are interested in the city (for work or pleasure) a platform where they can Connect and Share as well as Trade and Ideate. The internet is over run with information on education, events, shopping and real estate. MyBangalore.com attempts to organize this Bangalore-specific information so that users can be served a smorgasbord of information to pick and choose from.

The Founder of MyBangalore.com Shuhaib Shariff believes that traditional media hasn’t yet woken up to the power of the internet; he feels “potentially there is a huge online readership for local news and content.” MyBangalore.com is tailored for the select Bangalorean as well as people drawn to the city.

With MyBangalore.com having a Target User group in the IT-BPO sector, expats, NRI’s, students, travelers and the local Banglorean, MyBangalore.com is poised to cash in on the growing traffic not just in the city but the growing dependence on the internet as well.

Research shows that more affluent and educated people are leaning towards digital information consumption via websites, mobile, and TV and are moving away from traditional information consumption which has been newspapers, magazines, and to some extent even television. People now are now turning to the online medium for its sheer convenience as the internet becomes more and more accessible.
