WHAT IS HOTLIST Hotlist is a location-based platform that makes social coordination and social discovery a whole lot easier. Users perform two main actions on Hotlist: Following


By following relevant Friends, Places and Interests, personalized notifications are delivered to each user to keep them in the social loop of what’s happening with the friends, places and interests they care about.

By “Planning” via smartphone app or web app, friends can easily coordinate and decide on the most convenient time and place for everyone to meet up.

Hotlist influences real-world social migration by showcasing crowd info (how many people, gender ratio, crowd photos) of the people who plan to be at particular venue, days/weeks in advance. This allows users to select a location based on the expected crowd and scene as it’s the people at a place that make it fun. Celebrities and brands leverage Hotlist’s platform by utilizing a wide set of tools to engage their audience in real world interaction and migration.

Discover. Plan. Share.
