On any given day, there are a number of events happening in your area, but most of the time you are probably not even aware of them. As its name suggests, Yahoo’s Upcoming site hopes to resolve this issue by keeping you up-to-date on the many events occurring in your area. Even more, this nifty planning site can help you connect with people interested in attending each event so you never have to show up alone.
Searching for events is free, but if you would like Upcoming to remember your location and interests, signing up for a free Yahoo account is highly recommended. After entering your zip code or city, the site will show you the various events in your area, which you can browse by either popularity or chronological order. If you are looking for certain types of events like concerts or sports games, you can browse by category using a navigation bar on the left-hand side.
Each listed event has its own profile page filled with any details you would possibly need about it. As expected, you can find where and when the event takes place as well as a little description and any related photos. Even more, Upcoming will display the venue on a Yahoo map for easy navigation. Then, with a simple click of your mouse, you can let other members in the community know whether you plan on attending the event or are at least interested in it or in finding people to go with you.
