ST. LOUIS, Aug. 28, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Frienedy, the first site of its kind that lets users of all ages manage life in private groups, announced a new mobile app today that can be downloaded from Apple's App Store.
Recognized for its appeal to users of all ages for communicating within multiple private groups in a single application, Frienedy allows users to create an unlimited number of private groups where photos and documents can be shared, events can be managed, and group conversations can be led. Its pinnacle feature, the WishList, has bolstered wide reaching appeal for users from children to adults for adding items to easily purchase.
Engineered with parental permissions for users under 13, the company is the first of its kind to have integrated a process compliant with the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). "Parents finally have what I wish I would have had when my kids were younger and begging for an Instagram account," said Janel Patterson, CEO and co-founder. "Frienedy is a safe place for children to learn to be good digital citizens under their parents' guidance. If every child's introduction to social media was with Frienedy, I believe we would have less cyberbullying over the long run and fewer kids posting their way out of scholarships, college, even job opportunities."
Frienedy has built a substantial user base over the past four months since the launch of its website, attracting families, schools, sports teams, clubs, sororities, and small businesses who wish to ensure the absolute privacy of the content they share.
According to the Director of Development for City Garden Montessori School, John Carroll, "Frienedy represents a unique and private way for us to connect and engage with our parents and families, which is important for us as we build a community focused on modeling positive digital citizenship."
You can sign up for a free account by going to www.frienedy.com or by downloading the iPhone app from the App Store.
Frienedy, LLC (www.frienedy.com) was founded in 2013 as a safe, private group networking community designed for users and groups of all ages. Frienedy complies with COPPA standards for users under 13, enabling a revolutionary new way for people of all ages to connect, share and interact safely and privately in all of life's Groups.
