Reston, VA (PRWEB) July 08, 2015
SpouseLink.org, a web platform developed by the American Armed Forces Mutual Aid Association (AAFMAA) as a resource linking U.S. Military Spouses around the world through supportive, informative and inspiring content, today announced the launch of its social community app. The app is available for Apple mobile devices and was exclusively designed for Military Spouses and their families to connect and engage with one another.
The platform allows users to create a profile, add friends and create their own content. A unique feature of the SpouseLink app is the ability to create groups tailored to specific bases and interests, facilitating engagement for those who may be living in a new region or connecting with friends who’ve moved to a new duty station. Since SpouseLink.org’s launch in 2012, the site has become an engagement tool for U.S. Military Spouses in all branches and various locations.
The app automatically syncs with SpouseLink.org to publish original content such as important U.S. military information, lifestyle and career tips, parenting stories and educational resources from the web platform.
The app also has a messaging feature that allows U.S. Military Spouses to have private conversations with one another; cultivating valuable communication that would ordinarily diminish when friends experience the same separation that comes with military relocation. Similar to other social networks, the SpouseLink app also offers detailed privacy options that allow users to determine how public or private they would like their created profile, content or group to be.
“The release of the SpouseLink app represents one of the first mobile tools for U.S. Military Spouses across the globe to connect and engage with each other – all during a time when they are generally disconnected,” said Winnifred Tse, Marketing Coordinator at AAFMAA. “U.S. Military Families deserve a social platform that supports the unique and ever-changing lifestyle known only by their peers. In releasing this app, we hope to establish a go-to resource for the U.S. military community to form and sustain lasting relationships, connect for support, and to address the specific challenges that accompany those who serve our great country.”
“The app was designed with the needs and interests of U.S. Military Spouses in mind, with a great emphasis on both privacy and engagement,” said Elizabeth Samet, Managing Editor & Community Manager of SpouseLink.org. “The SpouseLink app allows users to share their thoughts and concerns with as much privacy as they see fit, and without the noise found on other social media platforms due to the robust privacy and filter options.”
The app, currently available for Apple mobile devices, can be downloaded through the App Store.
