Because of the additional potential and market silos that have opened up (to what was originally intended to be predominantly a politically oriented product & service offering), the founders of Public-Democracy have decided that a more substantial and descriptive name would enhance the corporate image of the company. This will also be a strong and effective way to provide ‘group branding’, using the term “Public”.

The synergy created by acquring one of the largest user databases in the US has broadened and deepened the value of the App to prospective clients.

Negotiations have proceeded successfully and the Public Group is developing the mobile App to integrate with live television broadcasts creating the potential for massicve new markets for the product.
