NEW YORK, Aug. 13, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- The developers of Polski Domek envision the site becoming a leading social network for the Polish community around the globe and a positive tool in helping emigrants adjust to new surroundings. Now, with the announcement of compelling new features, the site is poised to distinguish itself even further. Polski Domek is available in both English and Polish language versions.
"There are 60 million Poles around the world, 38 million of whom live in Poland. Polski Domek's goal is to connect all of these Poles through technology and real-time interaction," explains the site's creator, Gregory Rzeczko. "Living in New York City with its vibrant community of immigrants from all across the globe, I have realized how vital it is to establish a network for Polish people to come together, share services, and build stronger ties outside of Poland. Today, there's no other social network in the world that offers these types of services in Polish."
New features of Polski Domek include the ability to follow other registered members of the site, seeing their status updates, blog posts, photos and videos. Likewise, members can use both the hashtag and the "at" symbol in their posts and comments, drawing attention to an important topic or "shouting out" to friends and followers.
Polski Domek has also includes sections for world news and classified ads. Users can spark intriguing discussions around current events or see items for sale, apartments, job opportunities and so on, all posted by fellow users.
The driving force behind the creation of the site was the need for a single social network that could help Polish-speaking people feel more connected, whether that means across town or on the next continent. Complementing that mission, Rzeczko intends to expand the reach of Polski Domek to every corner of the World Wide Web. To that end, webmasters now have the capacity to add a Polski Domek "share" button to their blog or website. Users can push intriguing content out to their networks, creating the opportunity for viral posts and videos that make an impact well beyond the Polish-speaking world.
As of this press release, Polski Domek remains in public beta. Rzeczko and his development team are working hard to perfect the site before its full public launch, listening to constructive feedback and innovating ways to grow the user base. Plans include the addition of new languages to make the social network accessible to even more people around the world.
