Normally, CorkBird is all about getting out in the world and engaging with people, local businesses and organizations. Unfortunately, how we’re living our lives right now has changed and the CorkBird platform has pivoted to help support local businesses and organizations get through this time intact. While we can’t wait to get back to having events and specials to share, the focus now is to ensure the businesses we love have the tools and resources they need to keep them operating in a safe manner so that they will continue to be there for us and enrich our communities for years to come.
At its core, CorkBird is a feed curated by your geography. What you see is what is happening around you. It’s driven by you and the people, businesses and organizations right in your neighborhood. We made it hyper-local so you can better connect to your community and not only learn what is going on right around the corner but get out and be a part of it. We made it open so that everyone could be an influencer -- post on CorkBird and your ability to help out the restaurant or business you love or let others know about your organization isn't limited by your friends or followers. And we made it relevant -- posts disappear after a few days so you only see what matters now.
Posting is for everyone. Every post should be about something that people in your community can get out and do. Just take or add a picture, tell everyone exactly where it's happening, give it a snazzy title and tell folks a little bit about it. The more info you provide the more likely people are to get out there and do it!
If you are a restaurant, boutique or other local business that wants to get people through the door, post so that the people who are best able to come through the door know about your business. If you want to tell people about a sale or offer a discount or special to drive foot traffic, do it!
If you are a leader of a church or other community organization and you want people to know about your services or events, post about them!
If you are a member of the community and you want people to know about the restaurants you love, your amazing Pilates instructor, or your favorite band's gig at the bar around the corner so that you can help them be successful, post about them!
CORKING and COMMENTING
Corking is how you save posts on CorkBird and let the person who posted know you loved their post. Touch the little pushpin and the post is saved to your personal Cork Board. It’s a great way for you to make sure you don’t miss out on some fun (remember, unless you Cork it, it will disappear) and to keep track of your favorite places and things in your community.
You can also comment on posts. Once you expand the post, tell people you are going, share positive experiences you have had or ask questions. The more engaged the community is in the post, the more likely it is to be seen!
GETTING OUT AND DOING IT
Find something that you like? Then get out there and do it! Open the post and click on the map and your phone will take you straight there!
Now, when you include web links in your post details or comments, they'll automatically become active links that other CorkBird users can tap on.

Great local app
Great app if you’re looking to explore all kinds of businesses in the area you’re in. It’s such a great app for business owners as well. They can post a photo offering items or simply advertise a special in just a few seconds. It’s in the early stages but this app blows away Foursquare because it’s more versatile and catered towards the business owner and consumer equally.
Can’t cork or pin save anything
I’m not able to save (cork) anything or date it to my calendar. It would be a nice capability if you could save events straight to calendar.
CorkBird is the go-to app for all the great places and events in your local area!!
Small businesses, unique eateries and great events specific to your area are all found here!!
Look no further, CorkBird is calling!
