Press Release: GoMad, which stands for Go Make A Difference, offers a revolutionary approach to social networking. GoMadInc.com provides both social and business interaction on one platform allowing users one single access point to network with their social and professional connections. In addition to offering a multifunctional portal, GoMadInc.com has a unique financial model where its members are recognized and rewarded for their activity as well as an e-commerce section, ideas sharing platform and a group philanthropy initiative.

The unique e-commerce aspect of GoMadInc.com encourages entrepreneurial spirit. Functions such as MyStore and the Ideas Platform allow its members to buy and sell products and intellectual properties using their own networks. Members will also earn rewards in the form of GoMad Credits proportionate to their interaction within the site, which can be donated to charity, used to purchase from MyStore or exchanged for US dollars.

“We value your time and the content you share,” explains GoMad Founder and CEO, Shabbir Adamji. “GoMad was born out of recognizing the value of these two elements. As our company name suggests, we aimed to create a platform that makes a difference. Providing social media fans with a time-saving solution where their network works for them is just one of the ways we are changing things.”

Another area where GoMad plans to make a difference is in its philanthropy section where users are given the opportunity to donate their earned GoMad credits to its endorsed humanitarian organization the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) and its local partner the UAE Red Crescent Authority. Adamji explains “We believe in the power of communities coming together, and the Internet has now opened up limitless possibilities to connect and share ideas and resources.”

Adamji and the GoMad team have set a goal of raising over 7 Billion US dollars for humanitarian organizations over the coming years. According to Shabbir Adamji, Founder and CEO, “The responsibility is on the shoulders of mankind to make this world a better place for its future generations to come and to make a difference, using creative ideas, innovation and collaboration.”

Primarily being a social media platform, GoMad incorporates the standard functions of current social media applications such as chat, status updates or alerts, with the ability to share, comment and follow online content including pictures, video links and to broadcast feeds. Users can also update and manage their social and professional profiles or ‘avatars’ all in one place with one integrated list of contacts.

Adamji has a clear vision for GoMadInc.com, “We are creating an online community that harnesses the power of the connection, nurtures entrepreneurial activity and allows people to shape their future.”

GoMadInc.com is now live for registration and is a free online social networking platform open to the public.
