The LoungeList is the hotspot for local happenings in Jackson, Mississippi. This social network aims to promote the “events, people, artists, musicians and venues in the Jackson metro area.” The Events feature is central to accomplishing this goal, and has everything from the ACLU of Mississippi’s 40th Anniversary Banquet to neighborhood yard sales to performances from local playwrights. To highlight their importance, the Events feature is placed front and center on the main page.
Members of the LoungeList post photos from Jackson happenings and organize them into albums, which are also displayed prominently on the main page of the social network. Groups provide a place to organize around specific interests, like the popular groups for runners, environmentalists, and Mac people in Jackson.
