Directory Search By Distance

Directory Search By Distance

Short, concise description of the idea
The ability to be able to search the directory according to users closest to you or the starting zip code for the search.

Full description of the idea
Being about to search the LiveJournal directory according to users closest to the starting point (zip code) of the search so users can locate other users closest to them by typing in a zip code to begin searching from instead of individual city, state locations.

An ordered list of benefits
  • You could easily find users closest to you.
  • One search would replace multiple searches in areas where many towns and cities are close together.
  • Directory searches done by location would be more accurate and efficient.
An ordered list of problems/issues involved
  • A "zip code" section for location purposes may need to be added to user profiles.
