Community Bond | Local News Ausralia | How it Works


Have you ever wanted to communicate with people anywhere and couldn’t find the right online channel? Struggled with too many social networking websites, too many apps and feel like you can’t connect in an efficient and structured way ? That’s why we have built Community Bond, the free Multi Mobility & Location Based Social Network for Communities. Community Bond was designed to help you communicate with any community in Australia. Using our mobility profile engine at the top right of the web page, you can easily switch between 3 profile options and connect with the communities around your home, destination or current geographical location.


The 3 mobility profile options are as follows:

The Homezone profile: uses your registered address as your location. Use this profile as the social network for communicating with your neighbours.

The Destination profile: allows you to communicate with those at an important location of your choosing, a place you have been to or a place you plan to go to. Just provide the address or hold and drag the location balloon to the desired destination on the map and then lock the location & profile. Any content you create or search for will be based on this new location. It’s a social network where you are a virtual visitor.

The OnZmove profile: uses your current location for connecting with those at or around your actual present location. This profile is dynamic (periodical location updates). It requires GPS activation for GPS enabled devices and an outdoor operation to receive the GPS satellites location signals.

You can easily switch between these 3 stationary and dynamic modes. In addition, you can create location based posts and private groups. This allows you to turn any location on the map, any address or any building into a social network virtual notice board or private discussion room. Other users interested in that location and topic can join your groups , read your posts and reply.

The channels allow you to connect based on specific topics, services or interests.



On each channel, the first two tabs ( highlighted below) allow you to search for public posts & content or create your own.

The last two tabs ( highlighted below) allow you to create or search for location based private groups. Groups allow group members to communicate privately.


Here are some ideas what you can do with Community Bond.

These are just some examples. There are many more as Community Bond usage is only limited by your imagination. And remember the following tips:

-With just a tick of a box ( highlighted below), you can decide whether your post will be suburb-centric or tagged to the particular address or location of your used mobility profile option.


-Setting the mobility profile to “Destination” enables you to create posts or private groups anywhere you like on the map. Hence, you can turn any specific location into a virtual notice board or a private discussion room.

-Posts will show the user name, user type, relative distance and mobility profile they are using. This allows you to determine if the user lives at or physically or virtually visits this location.

Our security is super tight . We have implemented powerful verification methods to give you extra peace of mind so you know with whom you are talking. 

Whether on the go or connecting with neighbours, no matter where you are, Community Bond can meet your community social networking and  connection needs.
