[prMac.com] Atlanta, Georgia - This isn't your average "social network!" MacMod is repositioning itself in order to better serve Mac users looking for a place to socialize and learn with other Mac users. In this world of social networking MacMod recognizes the need to bring the powerful community building features of sites like Facebook and MySpace into the smaller more intimate niche that is the Mac community.
"We've always been a big destination for enthusiastic people who want to customize and optimize their Macs," says Anthony King, one of the founders of MacMod. "Now we're making it easy and fun for them to develop relationships with others who feel the same way about their computers."
Members of the site will be able to interact with other members in the same way they have grown accustomed to on other social networks. However, unlike most social networks, MacMod will be blending these features with useful Mac-related content including software tools, modification guides, system specs, icons sets, daily news, and more.
The MacMod difference:
* Users are surrounded by other Mac users
* Members can contribute to site-wide blogs and photo galleries
* Social content is complimented by informative Mac-centric content
* Mac users get a "real community" that is more than just a forum
As long as Apple continues to grow the market share for its computers, Mac OS X, and its other product lines such as the iPhone and iPod, there will be a stream of new Mac users looking for an online community where they can meet new people and learn about all things Mac. MacMod is positioned to be the place for them both.
Based in Atlanta, GA, MacMod is a social learning network for Mac users who want to socialize and learn with other Mac users. It's home to The Great MacMod Challenge and the "Mod of the Year" award. MacMod is dedicated to providing Mac users with the ability to share information and identify resources they need to personalize, customize, and optimize a Mac system. MacMod is recognized as the world's leading Mac modification site and is the first modern Mac-centric social learning network.
