Why it works

A Real Place is based on the most tried and tested form of communication there is – face-to-face conversation. Ultimately – it’s just a small group of people talking to each other – something we all know how to do – because humans have been doing it since we first sat around fires.

The technology needed to build a Real Place – electronic display screens – have been around for over fifty years – but it will take time to create exactly the right look and feel. Designing the forum of the future is one of our most exciting challenges.

People come to a Real Place specifically because they want to talk to each other. Our platform makes it easy and natural for them to do that. Most of us would find it difficult – to approach strangers in a public place, such as a bar – to start a conversation about any subject! The discussion signs make it possible to decide which groups you want to join – and who you want to talk to.

We have run many Real Place test forums with university students – using paper signs. It always works well – because it’s simple and intuitive.

The Real Place platform gives people the freedom to talk to each other – and it creates a structure for them to do it. That’s exactly what social media platforms like Facebook do too.

Testimonials

Here’s what just some of our fans have said

Where is the real place I want in. I’m definitely better face to face, rather than online

Marcus Verser — Killeen, TX

What I tell someone all the time ! Rather talk in person on the phone than try to explain or type it out , this doesn’t seem real and I can’t keep up . Grr

Bob Lehman — Breckenridge, MN

To see facial and physical reactions is priceless but to be physically close enough to feel the others response on a life energy level is essential for empathic compassionate interactions.

Mike Murray — Frankfurt, Germany

Talking on the internet gets boring sometimes, we do need more face to face outdoor communication
