(Vocus/PRWEB) March 27, 2011
Pets tend to follow their humans wherever they go, even into their virtual worlds. At the last count, a YouTube search for “funny pets” produces 57,200 results. Another manifestation of pets in the virtual world is Petbam, a blossoming social network for pets and those who love them. This is a place where pet-lovers can connect with each other directly. A pet video shared on Petbam will reach interested viewers instantly rather than floating haphazardly around the web with thousands of pop-star-wannabes and pranksters.
Petbam is a pet social network where pet owners, vets, and shelters congregate to share pet-related information. (The “bam” stands for “because animals matter.”) The site holds contests, features the arrival of newborn animals, hosts groups, and has a calendar where users can post events. There is also a Pet Memorial page, where people can remember their ‘gone but not forgotten’ pets.
Bamalert, a lost and found feature on Petbam has extraordinary potential. The feature sends out an alert to Petbam users in the area around a lost Petbam pet.
Petbam has been growing steadily since its launch late in 2010, acquiring nearly 400 users, over 2000 Facebook fans, more than 4000 Twitter followers, and over 1000 Myspace friends.
In addition to a fast-growing community of pets and their owners, animal shelters are turning to Petbam to gain greater exposure for their operations.
This magnet for pet-lovers is positioned for further growth as current users extend the network and others continue to discover the site independently. Sign up for this free pet website today.
