Abstract does for the community what Facebook does for the individual. Our website allows cities to develop a profile for their community in a standard format, presenting information about businesses, classifieds, attractions, local news, public services, and events. In addition to the basic information, our site also allows the members of that community to contribute personal comments and photos, giving a very real representation of what community is like in that city. The best part about this is our site is completely free, since our profit is made in advertising.
