Students blog about bars - an idea for PR

An undergraduate student at the University of Plymouth, Darren Jones, is launching a social networking website, Nights Out @ Uni (, run by students for students.

The site will provide users with entertainments information including events listings for nightclubs, pubs, bars, restaurants and cinemas, as well as the latest offers and promotions in their area, and could rival the likes of MySpace and Bebo, says Press Dispensary.

One wishes it well but its a big mountain and there is a lot of competition.

There is a useful thought here which is that a PR practitioner can create such portals for groups of people with common interests. For example what about one for your company, industry sector or locality?
