Ohanarama, the safe social network for families to connect, learn and play together online, today announced it has been selected as a 2011 AlwaysOn Global 250 “15 to Watch in the Upcoming Year.” According to AlwaysOn, the list publisher, the AlwaysOn Global 250 and 15 to Watch represent the top private, emerging companies in the Global Silicon Valley that are demonstrating significant market traction and pursuing game-changing technologies in digital media, mobile, social media, cloud, and SaaS computing. The AlwaysOn editorial team, partners at Morgan Stanley, the Blackstone Group, KPMG, Silicon Valley Bank, DCM, Greycroft, Bridge Bank, and industry experts across the globe, went through a rigorous interview and vetting process to choose the 15 companies.

The next year will be an exciting one for us as we introduce new fun family games online, add new activities, and continue to grow Ohanarama as the family social network.”
