This is going to be a fairly lengthy review so brace yourself! The reason is because I think Café Mom is a very amazing social media network that simply does not get the recognition that it truly deserves.

Hopefully by the time you finish this article your eyes will be opened to the value and capabilities of this highly specialized social platform.

A bit of history

To start things off you should know that Cafe Mom has already stood the test of time. It was launched way back in 2006 and it is still going strong as of the writing of this article. Café Mom is a time tested and proven player with staying power in the rapidly evolving arena of social media.

Café Mom was invented to fulfill a need for a very specific group of people known as moms. There is nothing else on earth like a mom and truly they are in a class all by their self! Truth is, if you are drawing breath and reading this article, at some point there was a woman who carried you in her tummy and then brought you into this world.

The intent of Café Mom from the beginning was to provide a secure social environment where mothers could connect to each other for the purpose of mutual support and interaction. Obviously this concept was incredibly valid based on the enormous and rapid initial growth of the network.

Over the years Café Mom has evolved and added many features. It has also branched out into sister sites such as Mamas Latinas, The Stir and The Prowl. Café Mom has also gained notice from big time retailers as they are an excellent “testing bed” for getting feedback and suggestions on new products.

As of the writing of this article Alexa is reporting that Café Mom has no shortage of fans and web site visitors. The site pulls an impressive global rank of 932 while currently showing a USA rank at 255! This gives us the understanding that the platform is stable, likeable and very heavily frequented.

Conversation for moms

Café Mom membership is free but restricted to moms only so no men are allowed. This gives a unique social environment that is not available anywhere else that I am aware of.

This also creates a safe and secure place where moms can converse with each other on a wide range of topics that are of interest to them. Past that, there is a unique connection between moms simply because one has to be a mom to understand what being a mom is all about!

At The Prowl the focus is dedicated to shopping and this sister site allows for a social network for shopping, reviews, advice, sharing and more.
