During the last couple of years, it took us heavy sacrifices to present to you a new version of our site. Being a privately owned medium size ethnic market Internet portal, RussianNY.com had restructured its resources into research and development of a new generation technology to create a hybrid social/business network. If you are reading this, you had probably browsed or will soon discover a new and improved RussianNY.com. As you will, we highly encourage you to take active role in our portal. Whether it would be for your social, business or editorial skills that will be presented, your involvement will be highly appreciated and rewarded in a special way.
Research and innovative development still remains our priority, only this time, emphasis is even more focused on our users . After all, we had incorporated RussianNY.com in January of 1998 at the time when Internet was an unfamiliar phenomenon. The site had transformed from a simple connection point into a popular ethnic community Internet portal outside of Russia. News, chats, personals, classifieds had enjoyed steady growth from its 90.000 registered users. Hundreds of thousands of photographs portray an accurate archive of what was actually happening in Russian New York during early years of Internet Onset. The brand can also be associated with being the first Internet event distributor outside of Russia. Its rating gradually grew on familiar search engines.
New and bigger real life challenges had somewhat stagnated development of small business across the board. It became increasingly obvious that in order to compete and survive with the Big boys, we needed to create a new hybrid platform capable to provide new tools to an educated social user. New set of simple and easy to use functionalities are offered. As we plan gradual integration into a full professional /social resource. In addition, improved news block with dynamic short format content will satisfy many desired cravings. New additional tools are already planned for the future. Open source interactive publishing will take central stage as the user should become beneficiary of a streamlined and interactive social experience. Various device platforms will be reflected in the upcoming Months and you will be able to call Russian New York a Social network that is all your own.
