Social Sharing and Networking Platform
PHP CSS JavaScript


Jaga is a social sharing and networking platform built to facilitate community-building online. Jaga grew out of a hyperlocal classified advertising site that has served the Niseko alpine resort area in Hokkaido since 2006. The Kutchannel remains the most popular Jaga channel but registered users can also create channels and create categories to them. User can post text, images, event info, and geolocation data to any channel, and comment on any post on any channel. Jaga is fully responsive and works beautifully on most any device. TRY JAGA
