Facebook for kids, Jackie Fame, www.JFame.com which bills itself as the “kid/teen social network”, a Facebook alternative for kids & teens, is launching its most anticipated FAME 2.0 social network portal today. Kids Facebook, Jackie Fame, is an investment capital funded, Charlotte & Los Angeles based company.

Jackie Fame, founded by kid entrepreneurs Zachary Swauger (age 13) and Joshua Swauger (age 10), launched its initial Jackie Fame Network in January of 2011. After the positive response and tremendous membership growth, the brothers put a halt on growth initiatives while focusing on enhanced development efforts of its platform. With continued feedback for improvements from the FAME Kid Advisors, the brothers developed FAME 2.0 - a custom, feature rich, with a scalable network infrastructure. Also, not surprisingly, Jackie Fame offers an interactive mobile app available to download on Android and iPhone - FAME Mobile.

In 2011, the Swauger brothers also penned their first book in the “Kid2Kid Book Series” titled “Kid2Kid, Keepin’ It Safe Online”. This fun to read book about internet safety which includes a chapter on anti-bullying is now available at book stores, Barnes & Noble, Amazon, and public libraries.

As a compliment to the book, they also launched their anti-bullying site “We Have the Power”, www.WeHaveThePower.net which is a grass-roots effort encouraging kids to join together in the fight to end bullying.

“What we set out to do was build an awesome place on the web for kids to communicate, share and create new friendships, continue to develop our brandFAME and its superior lines of quality products, provide financial opportunity for our investor team, and prove to the admission officers at Stanford University that we have what it takes to be a Cardinal – in about 5 years” said Joshua Swauger.

“FAME 2.0 is epic!" added Zachary Swauger. “Unlike many other social networks for kids and teens, with Jackie Fame there is no charge to be a member, no advertising in-your-face messages, and our members have the choice to be as private or as public as they want to on their page.” Initially, the system defaults to full privacy for all members to provide instant protection. “After that, it’s their choice who they friend.” added Zachary. In addition, users’ data and content is not sold to brands, advertisers, etc. “We ARE ‘the brand’ and with our merchant partners engaged with the FAME members via our FAME50 platform, coming soon - it’s really awesome”.

Jackie Fame’s BrandFAME will initially launch with the FAMEbody “body treats” personal care line and FAMENails, the companies nail polish line, due to be in national retail store locations by Q4 2012. BrandFAME, the company’s apparel line is expected in stores by Q1 2013. All lines and been developed, branded, quality tested, and are now in the pre-sale process.
