I’m Bored has added a new feature that allows anybody – consumers, events owners and organisers – the ability to upload info on their latest happenings – direct to I’m Bored Facebook pages and the I’m Bored Website – for FREE.
Since its launch in December 2013, the wholly South African developed product has attracted thousands of loyal users. The easy application informs and communicates family focused events, services and happenings and has over 40 000 national fans and growing at a rate of 18% per month.
The new addition allows the user to upload activities and events that are family oriented, which happen in and around JHB, Cape Town, Bloemfontein and Durban – additional promotion is also offered on the service for a small additional fee after the initial free post per event. Content only goes ‘live’ after it has been carefully curated to ensure that it meets the I’m Bored criteria. The new app also answers requests from existing users for a way to upload content that promotes local, more community-focused initiatives.
“There is a world-wide trend towards focusing on community” commented the apps founder, Lorraine Steyn, herself a mother. “By providing an easy mechanism for families and event’s organisers to list and engage with one another and inform, we hope to champion this trend here in South Africa.”
To download the ‘I’m Bored’ App or list your event send the event info to: firstname.lastname@example.org or on Facebook – I’m Bored Joburg Kids, I’m Bored Cape Town Kids, I’m Bored Durban Kids and I’m Bored Bloemfontein Kids.
