Denver, CO, November 27, 2008 --(PR.com
)-- Today, the Foxcore Corporation, the parent company of College Shack, officially opened registration of College Shack to over 400 of the country’s largest universities and colleges with a select few foreign colleges. The social networking site, which has been in development for over two years now, brings the next generation of online networking social sites to the internet with advanced security, customizable features, a module system and speed, many features missing from similar networking sites. Unlike other social sites currently on the web, College Shack fills a niche that once was used by the popular website, Facebook, but abandoned in 2006 where only college students were able to use the site.
Building on that basic idea, College Shack took it one step further by creating an atmosphere where the site is ran by college students and for college students. Any new features or changes to the site first are presented to the community for input. If the new idea has enough interest, the site then takes it to a vote where all the users on the site can decide if this is a feature that they want or not. Of course if a feature does get approved and a user doesn’t want anything to do with it, they can choose not only not to install it on their profile, but completely disable nagging invites as well. At the moment, there isn’t any support for third party applications but if the community decides it does want support for third party applications, functions will be added, of course subject to the same scrutiny of official modules as well.
With major features such as profiles, groups, messaging, blogging and photo sharing, College Shack is sure to steal users away from other social networking sites as well. Many new features are currently in the works as well and some are set to launch as early as mid-December. One current project in the works is well suited for college students. Called Collaboration, the module allows students to work on group projects together through the internet. Document sharing, a chat room, whiteboard an d video conference are all planned as part of Collaboration making it easier for students to meet on group projects without being in the same physical locations.
Over the next few weeks, College Shack will begin an aggressive campaign to advertise and get the word out about the new social networking site exclusively for college students. Visits by the creators to local campuses, blogging and even internet advertisements are all planned to get users onto College Shack. Keep your eyes open as the creators may just be making an appearance to a college near you.
