Press Release: CrowdFanatic Introduces a Social Media Battlefield

CrowdFanatic - the first Online Confrontation Platform – releases public beta version

Sunnyvale CA - June 9, 2011 – With the NHL and NBA finals underway and as the protests in the Middle East continue to shake totalitarian regimes, CrowdFanatic - the first Online Confrontation Platform - announces the release of its public Beta.

Officially launching their Beta at The Expo event in Sunnyvale CA this Thursday, CrowdFanatic is a revolutionary social media platform that defines a new genre of online services.  It is an “Online Confrontation platform” - a social media battleground for groups to deliberately confront their rivals in order to win debates and hammer down their opponents. CrowdFanatic is the place for fans and social activists to support their group, oppose their rivals and sway public opinion to their side.  

Described as “the Anti – Facebook”, CrowdFanatic deals with the most explosive topics in the news, and deliberately pits rival groups against each other in direct confrontation.  CrowdFanatic promises to create the hottest social media environment on the internet.

“It isn’t about me interacting with my friends. For that we have Facebook,” said Yaron Bazaz, founder and CEO of CrowdFanatic.  “Our platform is all about me as a group member fighting for my political party, sports club or favourite American Idol against the group’s rivals, in order to win on the streets and on the social media battlefield. It is a competitive environment, very emotional and extremely engaging.”

Crowdfanatic’s team believes they have identified a huge gap in today’s social media offerings. According to the founder, today’s social media platforms are focused on the individual and do not realistically reflect our group identities. Moreover - online groups and fan sites are isolated islands that only serve the group’s supporters. “There is no online arena that enables the Republicans to debate Democrats directly, nor online battlefield for Canucks fans to challenge the Bruins’ fans or for Rihanna supporters to confront Chris Brown. That is exactly what Crowdfanatic is - the global confrontation arena.”

To experience this arena first hand join CrowdFanatic at: www.crowdfanatic.com

Press Release - CrowdFanatic set to slay the Dragons

Vancouver-based, CrowdFanatic scores an exclusive invitation to present its online confrontation platform on Dragons Den.

VANCOUVER, BC - April 4, 2011 – The producers liked what they saw at the Vancouver auditions and want CrowdFanatic to present its online platform on CBC in Toronto. The Vancouver startup is setting the stage to put on a show in the Dragons’ Den and be one of the ventures to represent Vancouver’s Tech community.

Gearing up to launch in the coming weeks, CrowdFanatic (Vancouver, BC and Sunnyvale, CA ) is a revolutionary social media platform that defines a new genre of online services. The team at CrowdFanatic calls it an “Online Confrontation platform” - a global, group-oriented arena that confronts directly rival groups with each other. The place for group members and social activists to support their group, oppose their rivals and shift the public opinion to their side.

It has been called the wild child of the social media realm for a reason. Dealing with the most explosive topics on the news and confronting deliberately rival groups with each other the founder and CEO Yaron Bazaz promises to create the hottest social media environment on the internet.

“It isn’t about me and my friends. For that we have Facebook, our platform is all about me as a group member fighting for my political party, sports club or favourite American Idol against the group’s rivals to win on the streets and on the social media battlefield. It is a competitive environment, very emotional and extremely engaging.” says Bazaz.

Crowdfanatic’s team believe they identified a huge gap in today’s social media offering. According to the founder, today’s social media platforms are focused on the individual and do not realistically reflect our group identities. Moreover - Facebook groups and fan sites are isolated islands that only serve the group’s supporters. “There is no online arena or online battlefield that enables the Conservatives to confront directly with the Liberals or the Canucks fans to openly challenge the Red Wings. That is exactly what we are - the global confrontation arena.” says Yaron.

The events in the Middle East seem to emphasise the need for such a group oriented platform that focuses on the fight for the public opinions, and the linkage between social media and street.

The dragons will have an opportunity to invest early in the “first online confrontation platform” and to partner with the team from Vancouver to become one of the leading social media platforms of the coming years.
