LOS ANGELES, April 5 /PRNewswire/ -- Los Angeles and San Francisco-based start up Everloop, a new C.O.P.P.A.-compliant social networking platform and community designed for tween boys and girls (ages 8-13), won a coveted DEMOgod Award during the recent DEMO 2010 Conference.
Over the past 19 years, DEMO has continually searched the globe to find innovation where it lives. Chosen for their unique business strategies, market opportunities and overall presentation styles, DEMOgod Award winners have all earned the unique opportunity to showcase their new products in front of leading venture capitalists, corporate acquisition teams and fellow entrepreneurs. In winning the DEMOgod Award, Everloop joins an impressive group of past winners including Leapfrog and Education.com.
According to "VentureBeat's" Camille Rickets, "Everloop actually provides more functionality than Facebook, allowing its members to customize their profiles in a wide variety of ways." Popular social networking sites like Facebook and MySpace require their users to be 13 or older, creating an obvious void in private, compliant communications amongst tweens that Everloop can fill.
Everloop Private Label partners, who will be about to utilize the Everloop API to tie into the site's platform and virtual economy, include The Mad Science Group®, the world's leading brand of hands-on educational and entertaining science activities for kids and families. With more than 200 nationwide franchises, a live theme park ride at the Kennedy Space Center and a user membership of 5 million kids in 35,000 schools, Mad Science® brings invaluable educational resources to the Everloop platform.
Founded by a team of leading technology, social networking, management consulting and kids media executives, Everloop features a patent-pending, proprietary Privacy Panel designed to ensure a safe, private environment for tweens that can be monitored for safety by parents.

Scheduled for a Q2 2010 consumer launch, Everloop provides tweens with a state-of-the-art user experience, offering easy profile customization and real-time communications, including email, IM, chat, and voice chat. Real-time posts and video uploading, groups of common interest and a universal Evercredit system are among the site's many unique features. In addition, Everloop publishes original tween-centric web series and the Everloop Games Arcade offers more than 1,500 games.
