"Right now, because of the decentralized nature of the Tea Party movement, groups are utilizing Ning, Meetup, Evite, etc. to coordinate and plan events. FreedomConnect allows everyone to work on the same easy-to-use system for grassroots organizing," according to a press release.
The website combines "the basic elements of Facebook with personalized information based on your location -- listing events, groups and people in your area," the press release said.
"In short," the press release added, "FreedomConnect is the future of the Tea Party movement."
