The Praized plugin for Movable Type is like local search in a box. It comes pre-loaded with over 17 million US and Canadian local business listings, complete with contact info and location maps. You get social features like friends, favorites, voting, sharing, user-generated tagging, and commenting. In sum, the Praized plugin allows you to aggregate and organize local conversations within your community. And best of all, it's free!
Praized takes a distributed approach with its platform. Instead of being one centralized portal, Praized is a network of individual communities that we call tribes. Publishers can quickly and easily integrate our free Praized plugin within their existing Movable Type blog or in any other social media site using our API.
Place ratings and comments are specific to the community of each site where Praized is installed.
Since each tribe has unique tastes, the favorites will vary from one community to another. So the top-ranked restaurants on a vegan site will be different than the ones on a meat-lovers' site because the two groups have fundamentally different tastes. An aggregated view of all communities is available at Praized.com
