We deployed a GeoPage Map centered around our Times Square office in New York. Full story

CMN has an exclusive offer to promote a free widget from, the one-stop online city guide with its highly interactive map.

In addition, GeoPage is offering to share ad revenues directly with participating college newspapers. This widget will greatly enhance college newspaper's online site with an innovative widget while opening a new revenue stream.

The GeoPage map allows visitors a unique way to find social places, like restaurants and nightlife.  On the fly, readers can get reviews of venues, share pictures, and blog about their experiences. Geopage is enabled with Facebook Connect so readers can associate activity on your site with their social network.

What makes the GeoPage map unique is the ability for online users to search businesses by dragging the map to explore the venues around campus (or any area designated) as well as control which categories of venue display on the map (e.g. restaurant, coffee shop, nightlife).
