PALO ALTO, Calif., Nov. 20, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Meet Wilby, a friend, a confidant, a counsellor, a motivator, a positive model and a healthy influence for the children of the world! Wilby comes alive in the Universe of Wilby, based on the new unique and innovative WILBY™ application!
Already recognized as the "safe social network for children" and enjoying active popularity in 90 countries, WILBY.TV announced today the launch of this new application which allows children to communicate with Wilby and receive personalized answers. The WILBY™ application is available in Web version on the new site www.wilby.tv which has been newly redesigned for the occasion, and the mobile version for iPod, iPad, smart phones and tablets will be launched on the Apps Store, Google Play and Microsoft's Windows Store in mid-December 2013.
THE POSITIVE INFLUENCE OF AN ADMIRED FRIEND
WILBY is a young, active and charismatic character who exercises a positive influence on young people. Admired by children, he is an example to be emulated. Through the application's mail, Wilby responds to messages of all children in a constructive and educational way, offers them advice, encouragement and even challenges to be met. Young people love to listen to him, answer him and imitate him!
AN INGENIOUS INNOVATION
Offered in both English and French, the WILBY™ application is based on a creative and innovative communication concept! It engages the child, motivating them to develop good living habits, accomplish themselves, take advantage of the presence of a constant friend and be more open in sharing their feelings. In these times, where our children face threats of bullying and exclusion, the application can help many children to overcome their feelings of isolation and loneliness.
A GREAT TOOL FOR PARENTS
In addition to the positive and educational support it offers young people, the Wilby™ application is an additional resource for parents to promote communication with their children. Having access to messages exchanged with Wilby, parents are better informed of what their child experiences on a daily basis and can thus detect problem situations and apply the necessary remedies.
Created by three entrepreneurs concerned by the use of the Internet among young people and by education at school and at home; "THE UNIVERSE OF WILBY™" is a social universe on the Web that helps children 6 years and up and families around the world to develop in a healthy way by offering effective personal development tools and an online service of safe, fun and educational entertainment. The official version of the wilby.tv site was launched in 2011 and has quickly gained notoriety at the international level. A number of media position it as the "Facebook for children".
