ACTIVE Network Refreshes Plancast

San Diego-based Active Network said this morning that it has spiffed up Plancast, its newly acquired social event sharing site. Active Network said it has added a number of enhanced features to Plancast, and plans on such features as an intelligent event recommendation engine to suggest events based on location, interests, and social graph. The firm also said it is expanding the tool to support Japanese and German. Active Network acquired Plancast in August, retrieving the company from a very public shutdown. Active said it is now showcasing events of varied types, expanding Plancast's original goal of showcasing tech events in the Bay Area.
