The Washington Post reports that Everloop, a social-networking website for children under 13 years of age, has received additional funding from organizations such as Band of Angels, Wayne Goodrich and vFormation, a total of $3.1 million to put toward its venture.
Combining music, social games, videos and more with user-generated content, Everloop will also provide a private social network where parents can monitor their children’s activities. By allowing parental involvement, the network hopes to eliminate many of the concerns associated with young people accessing the Internet, including bullying and foul language.
Disney executive Sandy Barger has recently been named chief marketing officer of the company, while AOL’s Tobin Trevarthen has been appointed EVP of of business development and Alan Goodman as creative adviser.
