Portlogic Systems Inc., a telecom solutions provider, and mobile and Internet software and kiosk solutions developer for electronic payments, marketing delivery and community communication systems, announced Beta testing has concluded for FAMILIES, a privatized customizable social media family network site, and it is ready to launch.
"We are proud and excited to offer FAMILIES which we believe may be one of the best sites currently on the market for organizing family memories and sharing special moments," commented Jueane Thiessen, Portlogic's Chief Financial Officer.
FAMILIES offers a Facebook-like experience within a privatized closed customizable network, but besides photo, video, status update sharing and event invites, FAMILIES allows users to save and share recipes, addresses, coupons, software and files - and even post to family forums and discussion boards, and create family trees. Defaulted privacy settings allow only invited family members to join. In addition, FAMILYMeeting, is a messaging service that allows chats amongst up to 10 family members at one time so there is no need to switch between messaging services. Other standard features include a calendar, private messaging, and maps available in the mobile version so that family members may check in to locations.
Thiessen summarizes, "Portlogic started off as a software development company. It has been a long and arduous process to design and create software capable of providing all the features and standards we hoped to achieve, without compromising ease versus functionality. But the final product has far exceeded our expectations. It is safe, secure, easy to use and fun. We hope FAMILIES will become your most important social network."
