Famundo Brings Families Together with New Social Networking Site
Innovative service bridges the generation gap, allowing children, parents and grandparents to easily share photos, family news, and schedules as well as send and receive messages within a safe and secure environment.
Los Angeles, CA – November 7, 2008 – Famundo, the leading online family management and calendaring service, today unveiled Famundo Social, the newest online community allowing families to communicate and share information in one, secure location. Bridging the digital divide between children and adults, Famundo Social is the ultimate all-in-one communication and family management tool everyone can use to share photos, family news, lists, blogs and schedules. The user-friendly service makes it possible for families and friends to connect in a hip and modern way, easily accommodating their on-the-go, busy lifestyle.
With 4,000,000 children currently posting content to the Web everyday and about 61 percent of 13-17 year olds with a personal profile on social networking sites , Famundo recognized the need for a more family-focused, safe social networking site. Redesigning its Web site to include fresh and fun content catering to both adults and children of all ages, Famundo added social networking capabilities to its existing free, Web-based family management solution. In addition, parents have increased security control, ensuring they have the ultimate decision on who can view and access family information.
“As a busy father myself, I needed a complete solution that allows me to both manage my family’s busy schedule and communicate with extended family and friends across the US in one fun and easy location,“ said Richard Kuhlenschmidt, CEO of Famundo. “With Famundo Social, we have created a family-centric social networking site where children can enjoy keeping up with friends and parents can feel comfortable knowing that their children are safe from unwanted people / information on the Internet.”
In the endless shuffle between work, soccer, band and ballet practice, Famundo helps parents maximize quality family time in the midst of hectic schedules. Famundo includes a color-coded family calendar, a to-do list where family members can leave reminder notes for chores or homework, an address book, and a list manager for grocery trips. There is also a family vault where parents can securely store important documents and information, ensuring that no matter what happens to the hard copies, there will always be a digital copy to turn to anytime, anywhere. Parents and grandparents can now harness the latest technology to enhance communication with their computer-savvy children.
Famundo Social is available for free, with upgraded format for the special price of $2.95 a month or $29 a year through the end of the year. The upgraded solution includes 2GB of file and photo storage, Outlook sync, secure sockets layer (SSL) security, support for your local community, and more.
