Introducing Kinfish- The Best Kid-Friendly Online Sharing Community for ALL Ages

Note: This post is NOT sponsored. Pauline and I met Mark Gilmor, one of the Kinfish founders, last year at the Mom2.0 Summit and were drawn to his passion for the product and his focus on keeping kids safe online. In the past year, he and the team have added more safety features to make the product even more compelling.

Have you heard of Kinfish?

Are your kids anxious to share photos, messages, artwork or videos online – but you are worried about digital safety?

Are you a teacher looking for a safe way to share classroom updates and pictures with a closed group of parents and kids?

Are you a sports team manager looking for a new way to share updates and pictures with both the parents and the kids? ….and have the kids interact, too?

Do you want to share pictures and videos of the kids with the grandparents in a more secure place than Facebook? …and have the kids share messages, too?

Do you have a group of friends that you love to share messages with throughout the day – but don’t want to get trapped in Facebook to get the updates?

If ‘yes’ – Kinfish is the answer!
