Social networking site adds new tools to help baby boomers who want to stay active socialize
ENGLEWOOD, Colo., June 6, 2011 — ActiveEmptyNesters.com, a social networking website which launched earlier this year and aims to help baby-boomers lead an active and productive life, is pleased to announce its latest free feature available to every member of this rapidly growing website.
ActiveEmptyNesters.com Groups are the latest feature available on the website. The new Groups feature allows friends, associates or even former classmates to create online groups where likeminded individuals can gather in their own space to share stories, tips, advice or just chat with someone who shares a similar interest.
Setting up a group is simple: users first provide the group's details, name and description along with access privileges. They then add a photo to identify the group, and finally, send out invitations using the website's built-in email tools.
"Invitations can be sent to friends already on the ActiveEmptyNesters website, or you can send invitations to non-members who you think might benefit from the group," explained Ronald Mercier, creator of the ActiveEmptyNesters.com website. "Non-members will be able to join ActiveEmptyNesters.com for free, and they can do so knowing that their email address will not be shared with any other 3rd party vendors outside of the website."
Finding a group on the website is easy: select Explore on the Menu Bar then Groups. Find the group you are interested in, select the Join Group icon located in the lower right side of the Group description. It's that simple. The site currently has groups focusing on Lifestyle, travel and sport participation, along with several private groups focused on reuniting old school friends and classmates.
"Everyone has an interest, whether it is in an outdoor activity such as hiking, skiing, swimming, golfing etc., or more hobby based, like cooking, reading, knitting," said Mercier. "These interests keep us engaged in the activity and social by meeting others who have the same interest. Social interaction and exercising our interest is what keeps us young at heart."
The ActiveEmptyNesters.com website provides a dynamic social gathering place allowing members to meet others with similar interests and provides the tools to easily interact with other users and friends. Membership to the site is completely free. Once registered, members can begin setting up their personal profile, inviting friends to events, and communicating with old and new friends alike through the site's built-in social-networking features.
