Girl Ambition: Facebook for tweens

A new social networking site for tween girls.

Girl Ambition is trying to become the premier social networking site for tween girls.

The pink, flowery, butterfly-laden site launched Wednesday and targets girls up to age 13, offering videos, contests, IM and e-mail. The site also lets parents control girls' buddy lists and filter content.

The company's founders, three mothers of young girls, want it to be the training-wheels site for tweens before they grow into more sophisticated social networking sites.

"We know they'll be on Facebook and MySpace at some point, and want to be sure we give them the necessary tools here first," said Hilary DeCesare, co-founder and CEO of Girl Ambition, in a press release.

"We wanted to provide resources to prepare girls to safely use the Internet before they graduate to more advanced sites that present inherent dangers to this vulnerable age group," she explained.

Girl Ambition is not free. A subscription costs US$4.99 per month or $49.90 each year.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
