FamilyConnect Launches Social Networking Feature

FamilyConnect, a resource website designed for parents of children with visual impairments, has launched a new social networking feature called Family Friends.  FamilyConnect is designed to help parents of children with visual impairments reach out to other parents for advice and support and to share ideas, solutions, and parenting tips.  The new Family Friends feature allows members to create their own personal profile, upload a photo, share news, and become friends with other parents. 

If you are already a registered user of FamilyConnect, here’s how to get started:

As more FamilyConnect users opt into the service, you will see friend suggestions in the upper right-hand area of the page. Your friend recommendations will be based on the state where you live, as well as your child’s age and eye conditions.
