Chances are your baby has not demanded his or her own social networking page but with a lot of parents now on Facebook and/or Myspace, and many parents homebound, everyone likes to spread the news about their children. TotSpot is touted as a social networking tool for babies. The difference between TotSpot and a conventional social networking site is that a personal page is only meant to be shared with actual friends and family. You’re not going to get a lot of friend requests from unknown people,and that’s one of the selling points.
TotSpot is not a way for parents to connect with other parents. Although it can be used that way to set up playdates and the like, but the major reason for TotSpot is for parents to share photos and news about their young children. As most parents are very protective of putting pictures and other info about their kids online, TotSpot offers privacy protection to ensure the pages are secure.
Just like a traditional social networking page, TotSpot lets parents add a child’s interests: favorite toy, growth chart, milestones, such as learning to walk. Put together, it’s not just a place for parents to share information, but to document it as well, sort of like an online scrapbook. In a sign of the times, TotSpot takes this one step further and uses print on demand technology to let parents print up an actual bound book containing everything on the TotSpot page.
