Mom Meet Mom, a women-owned social networking site that brings like-minded local moms together, announced the launch of Socials™, a new event-planning feature that lets moms post playdates, parties, workouts, moms' nights out, and much more. The free tool puts invitations directly in front of the moms most likely to attend and complements the site's personality matcher and MomFinder – all of which empower moms to stay social throughout motherhood.
“Up until today, Mom Meet Mom has been about connecting one mom with another mom locally and about the compatibility between those two moms. While this is still the core of the Mom Meet Mom experience, we decided to make things even more fun and exciting,” explains Meg Gerritson, co-founder of Mom Meet Mom. “Any mom on the site can now create a Social™, which can be anything from a group playdate to a moms' night out, sewing party, paint night, or workout – then she can invite all the moms in the area to attend. It’s the easiest way to plan get-togethers or meet up with groups of moms in your area.”
Mom Meet Mom plans to release the Business version of Socials soon. The premium features will let both local and national companies market their family-friendly events to moms. In the meantime, Mom Meet Mom is inviting businesses to try out the free version.

Following a model similar to high-profile dating sites, Mom Meet Mom's specially designed geo-mapping, social matching, and local event features take the guesswork and anxiety out of finding and meeting moms locally. The free site was designed to provide a solution to the many challenges moms face when trying to stay social as a busy parent, including scheduling conflicts, work-life balance, raising kids as a single parent, and coping with autism, childhood diabetes, food allergies or other childhood health concerns.
The website was created by three moms, Julia High, Christa Terry, and Meg Gerritson, who saw other mothers struggling to stay social throughout motherhood. After experiencing rapid growth, the site is now bringing moms together in the United States and Canada, with immediate plans to expand into other countries.
