New Site Introduces New Spin on Social Networking

Famzam Unveils Different Approach by Focusing on Family

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - January 31, 2008) - LLC, a private and secure social connection site that allows users to create their own custom family and friends network, today announced the official launch of its web site, Unlike other social networking sites, Famzam is family centric and allows members to create separate social networks; one for family and one for friends.

"There are many social network sites that don't provide the security people require and don't offer a family-oriented experience. We built this site to completely cater to what families really want and need -- a completely secure and private place that makes it easy for you to connect with all family members and closest friends," said Anthony Lamme, CEO, Famzam. "It's a great way to capture, store and share all their special memories privately -- from photos and recipes to personal calendars and blogs. It's a more close knit network that's less about social networking and more about social connecting."

Famzam services include:

Photo Sharing and Storing. Album functionality allows members to organize photos and automatically send to their family and/or friend network. Members can also set-up automatic email notifications to notify family and friends of new album postings. Only the members who have accepted invites to your network can view photos.

Blogging. Members will be able to post blogs that are delivered to either their family and/or friend network.

Calendar. Users will have access to a personal calendar to input events such as birthdays and anniversaries. When a family member or friend joins their network the system will automatically input that person's birthday into their calendar. Members can then opt to get birthday email reminders that link directly to Famzam Shopping.

Recipes. Through Famzam Recipes each member can store, share and rate recipes through our interactive software. Users can choose to store recipes in their own private 'recipe box' or share recipes with family and/or friends through 'Family Recipes' and 'Network Recipes.' Members also have the option to share recipes publicly with the entire Famzam Network through 'Famzam Recipes.'

Private Messaging. An internal email messaging system where family and friends can send private messages to a specific member in their network.

Shopping. Famzam has combined a Web 2.0 platform with traditional ecommerce. Famzam Shopping makes it easy to shop for that special someone by sending out an email notification reminding the member of that special event that's approaching in their calendar. Users will then have access to Famzam's Vendor Page linking them directly to the premier names in e-commerce.

Famzam also has two proprietary stores: Famzam Gifts and Famzam Flowers to provide its members with more shopping options.
