The agora was a central public space in ancient Greek city-states where the people of a community assembled or gathered.

It became the center of religious, political, judicial, social, commercial, artistic, athletic life in, or of, the greater community. In modern Greek the term “agora” refers to the “marketplace”. The Ekklesia were the people of a community called out or summoned to the agora primarily to discuss and determine governmental, political and/or judicial matters.

The “WOW” stands for “Window On the World” and agora is the place or, in this context, the social networking platform that citizens of any city, town, village, or rural area in the world can use, free of charge, to focus upon and showcase their local geographic community.

Why did we develop another social networking platform?

We had originally referred to this new web platform as “WOWcities” but since that name excluded towns, villages and rural areas, and seemed to miss the real essence of what we desire to convey, it just didn’t sit right. It wasn’t until recently that we were inspired with what we believe is a more accurate name….

Why? Because it will allow local communities around the world to…
