THE WEBSITE• Why is a website needed? • A website is needed so that ‘PATIALVIS’ can be a voice of the city. Patialvis need a platform where we could raise the issues of common importance. Some recent happenings that you don’t like in the city or something you think we should have in the city, we could all raise our voice in unison and maintain Patiala as a royal city not just in words but in deeds too. • The city lacks website for social cause.• How will it work? • Website will be shared with the local media or officials through various marketing channels to highlight the issues and problems being faced by the residents. • It will provide necessary information to the tourists. • It will have direct interaction with twitter and Facebook. • It will include a page about history of Patiala.
Why not FACEBOOK?• THE VETO POWER • Veto controls on a Facebook page are vested with the Facebook management team. • Some topics which are posted to Facebook could be against the government interests and policies or may feel offensive to some, therefore, they can be deleted by the Facebook management or even a page can be banned. It somehow lacks the freedom of thought and speech.• PAGE PROMOTION • A Facebook page extends only a limited promotion support and sharing, thus an independent platform is not only necessary but must.
