MySpace Legal Woes Spark New Wave of Social Networks

Recent news on MySpace highlights the need for safe social networks. ConnectFactor (http://www.connectfactor.com) begins to answer that need.

The rise of networks-as-sexual-playgrounds gave me the idea for ConnectFactor. I was tired of seeing social networks devolve into titillating conversations about tattoos and whether people are 'hot' or not. Adults needed a place to connect. And the recent news about major social networks confirms to me that ConnectFactor is the right network service at the right time.

Recent news on MySpace highlights the need for safe social networks. ConnectFactor (http://www.connectfactor.com) begins to answer that need.

ConnectFactor is a social network site with three goals:

1) Allow like-minded people to connect in meaningful ways via the internet. ConnectFactor offers messageboards, blogs, instant messaging, private messaging, "hot topic" lists, news , blogs, the "Daily Factor" (a special feature that connects people faster than email, and with a wider reach than message forums), photos, and more. Plus, ConnectFactor displays connected people in a unique, "family tree" manner.

2) Connect people on an "invitation only" basis. ConnectFactor uses a proprietary system of rating your relationships, too. Each user will display an average rating along with the number of people that rate them.

3) Provide a family-friendly environment for people to interact within the framework of knowing folks insofar as they were invited to join the network.

"There is no way to completely guarantee that people you connect with will have only positive intentions. Yet, we believe that ConnectFactor offers people the best available alternative," says Don Harrold, co-founder, ConnectFactor.com

Mr. Harrold continues, "The rise of networks-as-sexual-playgrounds gave me the idea for ConnectFactor. I was tired of seeing social networks devolve into titillating conversations about tattoos and whether people are 'hot' or not. Adults needed a place to connect. And the recent news about major social networks confirms to me that ConnectFactor is the right network service at the right time."

"We don't have any place at ConnectFactor for you to unload your entire 'hotmail', 'outlook', or 'juno' address book. That's not what ConnectFactor is about. The sort of random connections built through those tactics serve only one purpose: to increase hits for the parent site. We want ConnectFactor to be a place where people know their connections and trust the connections made in their network," concludes Mr. Harrold.

ConnectFactor is currently in "beta test" mode. ConnectFactor is free and open to US citizens (beta mode only) who want to join a family-friendly, invitation-only network of like-minded people. Interested parties should visit http://www.connectfactor.com for more information.
