Amir Oveissi Launches Social Networking Site for Politicos

December 16, 2009, Washington, D.C. – In today’s fast paced world, it seems no profession or industry has been left unbitten by the social networking bug. Enter DistrictFile, an exclusive social networking site targeting those working in politics. Created by Oveissi in September 2008, the site has gained notoriety in the political sphere not only for its notable membership but also by the fact that membership is based on invitation only. According to Oveissi, the end goal of DistrictFile is to transform itself into something like the “U.N. of social networking.”

The nonpartisan site boasts an impressive membership which includes former Capitol Hill Chiefs of Staff, think tank directors from over 20 nations, and individuals working with such organizations as the United Nations, State Department, and the Cato Institute, just to name a few. DistrictFile continues to maintain a strong link to the London School of Economics, which Oveissi is an alumnus of, with approximately 20% of its members having studied there in the past. Like many social networking sites, DistrictFile allows members to post upcoming events, forums to discuss different topics, and a social connector which allows members to locate one another when they share a geographical proximity.

Recently, DistrictFile upped its political caliber by appointing well known political consultants Jason Roe and Peter Mirijanian to its Board of Directors. Roe who has nearly 20 years of experience on campaigns will serve as DistrictFile’s Chief Operating Officer while Mirijanian, who is a regular Democratic strategist, will serve as a Senior Advisor and communications consultant. According to Oveissi, “They have both been on the ground floor of successful ventures and will bring valuable experience with them.”
