What is an Event?

An event can be anything of interest, a local market, restaurant sale, school play, local sports events, crime in your area, natural disaster or other newsworthy event.

What is a POI?

A POI stands for Point Of Interest this is a location such as where you live, work, kids go to school, or just a place you want to stay informed about. In general the more specific the location the more useful information you will receive. For example if you choose a POI as your home with a 5km radius. You will only receive news about events that occur within 5km of your house. Alternatively you can choose Cape Town with a 20KM radius which will give you lots of information about Cape Town.

Why am I not seeing any events under my location?

If you choose a very remote or specific POI without many other people registered to the same POI there may not be much information for that area, you can try increasing your radius or encouraging people near you to join Geonation and help build the community.
