Bill Arvizu and Frank Perez sit down with Host Sam Dever to discuss their new concept for a social network based upon visualization called “Picalum.” Arvizu originally came up with the idea while using dating and other social networking sites. He explained how it was difficult to get a true idea who someone was based upon a few lines of text. What he did next was create a profile with simply nothing but pictures of things that represented himself. The response was phenomenal and led him to take the idea even further.
In addition to Picalum, Arvizu and Perez are both firefighters in the Las Vegas community and credit the Downtown Project as an added inspiration. Both have served downtown well before any of the recent changes and have a great appreciation of what all is being done to enhance the community. Picalum is going to utilize art, music, fashion, travel and other aspects of culture to help create connections among users.
Arvizu and Perez encourage people to visit their Facebook page and post their own version of the “Just Look” Picalum pose. Picalum is welcoming new team members and are currently seeking an experienced tech savy coder who can help build the Picalum platform.
