  • Publication number: 20160080903
    Abstract: Systems and methods related to a global network of local and/or hyper-local network stations are described herein. Such stations may be created, sponsored, or managed by various entities. In certain embodiments, the digital network of stations is accessible via a single mobile or internet application, enabling entities to create unique mobile experiences for consumers without needing to build and promote their own mobile applications. A partner entity, through its station, may act as a local concierge, providing recommendations to station visitors and connecting its station's visitors to local deals. The global network of stations is designed to strategically disseminate information to consumers who are identified as likely receptive to the information based, for example, on a consumer's location, location history, browsing history, station selection, interests, lifestyle choices, affiliations, biographical data, and/or current environmental data.
