We all have hundreds of friends on social networking sites and in real life but it is a rare occasion when any of our friend is interested in doing what we want to do, but someome out there, stranger to us may be in the same situation; now the question arises how to find a stranger who's also interested in doing same activity. HollerYo! is all about answering this question.
HollerYo! is a Social Networking application to effectively find anonymous real time activity partners within a pre-determined area. The motive behind HollerYo is to help users to create new real world social connections with others of similar interest and pursue any activity together.

The members who gets the notification can contact the member and start a conversation.
