Detailed Description

Update

Maya's Mom is a social network and advice site for parents, specifically females. Parents can share their thoughts via "journals", join specific groups to get advice and ask questions, and find other parents to connect and share pictures with. The site is based around parenting so you'll find plenty of postings on kids taking first steps, silly kid quotes and general parenting advice.

The site has weekly journal topics like "Songs You Can't Get Out of Your Head" that all parents can choose to write about. Parents can also submit suggestions for future topics. In the "group talk" section, parents can join groups like "Expecting Moms" and "Stay at Home Moms" and ask questions and give each other advice. The group page shows the most popular groups and tracks group conversation activity, so parents can see what topics and issues are relevant to the community.

Paidcontent.org recently announced that BabyCenter, owned by J&J, acquired Maya's Mom for an undisclosed amount. BabyCenter will leave Maya's Mom as a standalone site but will use Maya's Mom's backend social software across its network of sites and blogs.

Along with True Ventures, investors in their angel round included Jeff Clavier, James Currier, Caterina Fake, Geoff Ralston, Raymond Stern, and Michael Tanne.

Competitors include Minti and MothersClick.
