What is Cafemom?
Launched in 2006 and based in New York, ironically by two men, Cafemom is an ad-supported social network directed at mothers and expecting mothers.
In 2007, only one year after its launch, Cafemom became the most frequented website for women, getting around 8 million unique visitors with over 140 million page views.
In 2010, Cafemom launched a related blog called The Stir, which features all original content on topics such as parenting issues and how to overcome them, events, decorating and homemaking and celebrities and gossip.
What is Cafemom’ s Feature list?
CafeMom is dedicated to Moms, being as it is, that means it is not allowed for men to join the website and if a man is reported to have become a member, the account is terminated right away.
Users can access Cafemom in two different methods, one as a visitor and the second as a registered user.
If a user decides not to become a member of Cafemom, the website is still available to browse for information and reading articles and blog posts and use the search option and several other features in the tab as well as posting in the polls tab without joining the website.
With a simple free registration process, moms can join the Cafemom social network without issues. This allows them to ask questions, post pieces of advice on any topic, create their own blog, and opt for receiving free products for review from any sponsor of Cafemom. The registration form requires information to match information posted by the same user on other social networks.
As mentioned above, Cafemom is famous for being a “dad-free zone”. But Dads can still go onto pages and receive advice but are not allowed to create accounts or become members.
Members can upload photos, post comments and leave messages for other members. There is also the email feature and the buddy list (similar to Facebook’s friend list).
