Pursuing a better Internet
We recognized huge problems being created by the internet: people were no longer doing business with people, our privacy was being invaded and monetized, and trust in the marketplace was rapidly eroding. Believing that people deserved a more fulfilling internet experience, we decided to try and figure out how to create it for them.
To get the ball rolling, we conducted over 4,000 telephone interviews in an effort to find out what people really wanted from their Internet experience and, just as important, what they didn’t want. The responses we received were consistent and clear. People simply wanted to be honored, respected and always told the truth. We used these responses to create the 4 pillars outlined above – Guaranteed Privacy, Verified Performance, Advertising Free and Community Investment. Having built the foundation, we then formed a team of like-minded people to help build a communication platform that met the needs of consumers and helped support local communities. The result is Localloop, a better Internet experience that respects people, protects privacy, restores trusted commerce and supports communities.
