WHAT IS PARANOID FAN?

Paranoid Fan is a GPS-based social networking utility for sports fans. Users crowdsource social activities such as watch parties, tailgates, venue check-ins, and meetups. In addition, users can also input information that surrounds their at-game experience such as local ticket offerings, parking data, celebrity sightings, traffic flows and more.

Our mapping and geo-communication technology is one of the first platforms to truly bring social to sports.
