How many social networking sites do we need? I guess you could say “the bubble is baaaack!”
Famster is a Flash based social networking site with a long list of features. Created by Whittier California web design company Ivenue, it’s an attempt to take online social networking mainstream for adults. There’s no clear business model yet and I find the site’s branding a little creepy, but the feature set is staggering and the site is so well designed that it’s likely to win over a lot of people in its target audience.
Features include 1GB of “filing cabinet” storage, 1 GB of encoded video storage, a Famstermail email account with 1 GB of storage, unlimited photo uploads, scrapbook pages, a blog, a simple RSS reader, calendering, to-do list sharing, contacts lists with Yahoo! maps integration, a recipes section with 23,000 preloaded recipes and a place to store your own and several other family oriented features (like family tree mapping).
