How does the web app look and feel to use?

Families.com isn’t the most attractive looking website ever. The user interface isn’t too bad but it seems a little clunky. What contributes to this impression mainly is the large number of advertising links embedded throughout the site and its content. It can also be difficult to remember where certain features are located. The popup menus are a bit on the smaller side and were at times difficult to read.

How does the registration process work?

TO register for Families.com, users will want to go to the Community and then Members tab. Fro there, they can register for the site by providing their username, password, email address and they'll need to agree to the terms of use and that they are over 13 years of age.

What does it cost to use the application?

Families.com is completely free to use, and it is supported by advertising revenue generated from the many embedded links located throughout the site's content. Users may even find an opportunity to generate some extra income via Families.com by blogging for the site. More information about this can be found on their webpage.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Families.com is a good resource for families, moms, dads, grandparent and more. The community is composed of mainly family-oriented people who are looking to connect with and help others. The downside to the site is its excessive number of banner ads, its somewhat amateur site design and the sometime illogical organization of some of the site's categories and content.

  • The site features a community of discussion forums and profiles
  • Articles on parenting, adoption, babies, toddlers and more
  • Families.com offers a pregnancy blog and counters
  • Fun topics such as scrapbooking, popular culture and photography
