Gemma Lang from iSocialCircle

On today’s show, I welcomed Gemma Lang, founder and director of iSocialCircle which is a new social-media website that allows people to search for like-minded people in their area as gig-buddies, shopping companions etc.

Users of the website are called Socialites, and can search for people relevant to them for a particular activity/event they are looking to find a companion for.  Gemma spoke about why she created the website, how it fills a gap in the current trend of the various social-media websites – is there a need for another platform?  Yes, it would appear!

This seems like a great way of getting out of the house and, with many people working from home or not within the confines of an office – a handy way to stay active and enjoy life whatever the circumstances.  Inspiration and ideas are also offered on the website: Coffee day, a trip to Italy, places/sights to see etc – Often it’s not just a case of who to enjoy an activity with, but what activity and where!

About Charlie Davy

I started off where many young radio upstarts begin - Hospital Radio. I kept my hand in presenting on and off professionally over the years but found that the technical side appealed more to me. I originally got involved with Phoenix FM just after the full-time licence was granted in 2007, presenting Drive and then coming back (on more than one occasion!) for more. Somebody must like me as I'm now back doing the Drive show once again a decade later!
