Savvy Auntie claims to be for “all women who love kids.” Obviously it’s not the first website for women, so how aunt-centered is Savvy Auntie? There are a number of articles for aunts and aunts alone – how to buy a present for a niece or nephew, running a baby showed as an aunt, and so on. So it really is aimed at aunts – not just women in general.
Mostly Savvy Auntie is an information portal. As a portal, it’s one by which other information-based sites should be measured. It has a good use of graphics, an intuitive layout – and it’s a sharp, modern-looking site. Sort of Aunts 2.0. Like other social networks, users can add friends, join groups, blog, send messages, and the like.
The problem with the site is that it is more form, and less function. Some of the articles are sparse – just a few paragraphs long and there’s not a lot of interaction on the articles but this could change as more aunts come on board. Generally, it’s a well-designed niche network that offers some blog-quality tips on being an aunt.
