)-- Fanlala.com, an interactive social community for teens and tweens, has been launched to give a voice to fans of the hottest young celebrities in a completely safe, secure environment. The site provides up-to-the minute news, feature articles and photos. Personal profiles, blogs and photo albums enable fans to connect to other fans in the community and keep track of their favorite celebrities.
The family-friendly site is a hub for the latest in social networking technologies, inviting the participation of fans through contests, games, polls and discussions. Fans contribute to the community by uploading videos, pictures and content to their favorite celebrity profiles, while the Fanlala.com team monitors and approves all submissions.
Fanlala.com fills the void of kid- and teen-driven magazine entertainment programming and provides users with a unique interactive platform with which to engage. Fans have first access to Fanlala TV, which offers the website’s own exclusive video content designed to keep fans in the know. The content features the most popular teen celebrities with one-on-one interviews, behind-the-scenes footage on the sets of their favorite shows and in recording studios, on red carpets and more.
Fans can also challenge their star knowledge with the many quizzes featured on the site. Celebrity buffs have the ability to create their own quizzes about their favorite stars and share with the rest of the community. Users can also log-in to fanlala.com through their Facebook accounts, invite friends to join the celebrity hotspot and add fanlala.com activity to their Facebook newsfeed.
One of the main goals of Fanlala.com is to provide a safely monitored online environment for young fans to join and share in the excitement of entertainment. Today, parents are faced with an increasing number of social networks available to their children even though they lack knowledge about the purpose or content. Fanlala.com makes a continuous effort to ensure the protection of its users and the trust of their parents.
"We are very excited about Fanlala.com as we created this interactive community for tweens and teens from ages 8-14 to give them access to the best content and exclusive, original coverage on their favorite stars,” says Fanlala.com COO Timothy Golden. "What makes Fanlala.com different from other sites is that it provides a one-stop destination for young fans to get all the entertainment news, videos and photos that interest them most without searching all over the web."
The featured celebrities on Fanlala.com have robust fan pages built into the community encompassing exclusive videos, user submitted videos and photos, chat rooms, picture galleries and news from the top tween sites on the web.
