Family-Oriented Online Community Famster Launches Redesigned Feature-Rich Website
Closed Social Network Offers New and Enhanced Features Including Setup Wizard to Aid First-Time Members in Famster Account Creation
Las Vegas (February 13, 2006) - Famster, the leading online community for families to share, create, organize and stay connected, announced today that it has graduated from its public beta and launched the full-fledged version if its site. The newly grown-up Famster offers enhanced user experience and incorporates a Setup Wizard feature to guide first time Famster members through the setup process.
Designed with the needs of today's Internet savvy families in mind, Famster's private online community puts parents in the driver's seat. Famster enables families to enjoy the best of the Internet through features such as photo and video sharing, virtual scrapbooking and blogging in a safe, secure, fun and free environment without the worry of exposing personal information.
Among the site's expanded features, Famster now offers an interactive Setup Wizard so new users can jump into creating their own customized site quickly and easily. The Setup Wizard walks users step-by-step through choosing a unique Famster name, picking a theme, creating Famster characters, uploading photos and an overview of Famster's other features. The new Setup Wizard can also be revisited for future guidance.
"Since launching Famster a few months ago, we've watched the site mature from a place where families could connect privately, to being the family's central hub online," said Wayne Naphtal, CEO of Famster. "Our unique approach to social networking allows families to create a virtual living room and have a safe and fun social networking experience while maintaining their privacy. And with the new version of Famster, we can provide people with not only a great online experience, but a simplified process for setting up a Famster site so people can start enjoying Famster right away."
In addition to the Setup Wizard, Famster has also extended its offerings
to the mobile phone. Members can post blog entries, upload photos and
video directly to their Famster site from anywhere using their cell phone,
giving members even greater access to stay connected.
The new site enhancements, which also include increased storage space and unlimited photo upload abilities, are a direct result of member feedback. Famster membership is free.
