Already, there is a site meant for children ages birth to 5. Think of it as Facebook for toddlers.On TotSpot, moms and dads can create free pages about their children, posting photos and videos and dates of their first smiles, first steps and first days of kindergarten.
They can invite friends and relatives -- and even parents of other babies from the play group -- to view them.Just like Facebook.
TotSpot is the brainchild of -- who else? -- two twenty-something Harvard grads from the class of 2007. They were convinced that the world needed yet another social networking site, this one for the bib-and-bottle-tending crowd.
"The network of friends that you would share things with professionally could be different from the network of people you want to share stuff about your children," said Adam Katz, who is from Long Island.
Katz started the site with Michael Broukhim of Los Angeles, whom he met at the Harvard University campus newspaper. The two wanted to do something entrepreneurial after graduation. "We got a sense parents wanted a very simple and easy way to share stuff with their friends," Katz said.
There aren't be ads on the children's pages. Katz said that they hope to profit from turning sites into keepsake books.
Seven-month-old Maddox Wohl of Plainview already has a page; his mother was one of the people who was invited to preview the site as it worked out its kinks for its recent national launch.
