10 Best Social Media Outlets For Moms

Updated on July 25, 2012

The Internet is the place to gather the best parenting advice and information so that no mom should stay confused as to whether she is doing the right thing dealing with any stage of her kid's development.

Okay, sounds like the Internet is of great practical utility to moms then, but is it also the place to be when you just wanna socialize, hang out with like-minded people and have fun? You bet it is! Education should be made into fun, right? And the following websites are designed to do just that.

Here are the 10 top social media websites for mothers and mothers-to-be for your browsing pleasure. To spark the excitement of discovery I have provided brief descriptions of what each site can do for you and how you can make the most of it.

Cool Mom Picks

Cool Mom Picks is a much needed resource for busy moms looking for product reviews on new or non-mainstream products and services by upcoming designers and mom-run companies.

The site is run by enthusiastic volunteers whose main objective is to track down cool kid-related items such as products, blogs, websites, and good causes, providing the site's followers with essential information they can't find anywhere else.

The Mac Mommy

The Mac Mommy is the online journal of Melissa Davis, about her adventures as a computer consultant and mother to a toddler.

She blogs about her personal experiences and topics of interest to moms. When she gets passionate about something she tends to run complete series of posts about the topic.

The fact that Melissa writes for herself first and foremost guarantees the usefulness of her content that includes helpful reviews, tutorials or tips on being a geeky mom.

You can even get in touch and hang out with Melissa on social networks like Twitter, as she enjoys interaction with new people.

Mamasource

Mamasource is for mothers who prefer sharing parenting advice, opinions, and product reviews among themselves in a private setting.

Mamasource (different link) has a variety of tools and is quite unique in that it allows you to immerse yourself in an instant community via email blasts and bulletin boards.

Moms have the ability to post questions and receive answers immediately without the hassle of trawling archives or databases. A ready helping hand (fingers) is ensured by the fact that all site members are available to respond to one another's questions or queries.

Mombian

You guessed it. Mombian is a site aimed at lesbian moms. The place boasts a video blog featuring an amazing vlog series named “She Got Me Pregnant.”

The series explores the lives and loves of lesbian moms in weekly episodes, staring Dana and her partner, Helen.

Mombian also runs contests, product reviews, kid-friendly project demos, interviews, and really unique features like recreating the Dinah Shore PGA golf tournament in a living room.

MomLogic

MomLogic is a site started by Warner Bros. Television Group in 2007. The place has a vibrant community of mothers.

The website has editorial features like video, interviews, and articles but it's main attraction happens to be its community boards.

MomLogic's content resembles the style of mainstream women’s magazines such as Elle, In Style, and People, featuring fashion news about celebrities as well as personal essays.

MyMomShare

MyMomShare is a great place to discuss parenting-related news and stories with other moms. However, its charm lies in being a useful community news filter rather than a discussion board.

Members have the ability to post links to news articles that they came across in other places online, they can also write and post their own articles and essays to be read by like-minded people.

MotherhoodLater

Motherhoodlater focuses on mothers who started their families over 35, and works as a support group and community, offering both online and offline support.

Mothers can socialize at local meet-ups in the New York area, Anchorage, Fairfield County (Connecticut), Los Angeles, and Cedar Rapids (Iowa).

Moms can also network online on the website, organize “Mothers Night Out” events and play dates, or pal around on the blog.

Motherhood Uncensored

Motherhood Uncensored is the brain-child of Kristen Chase who interviews authors, teachers, and hyped bloggers in her weekly podcast offering honest and to-the-point discussions about parenting, pregnancy, and culture.

Lifetime Moms

If you are part of a local moms group, you will be familiar with the concept of Lifetime Moms. The site is your local mothers’ group put into cyber-space.

Lifetime Moms features organizing functionality like FAQs, mass email group settings, as well as other socializing and community fostering tools.

The site attempts to create local mothers’ groups in a social networking environment offering menu planning and recipe advice, classifieds, resource links, and activity announcements.

Secret Agent Mama

Secret Agent Mama is the website of blogger and photographer Mishelle Lane who posts her photos alongside her entries on a regular basis, capturing everyday scenes and alluring landscapes in her Midwestern town.

I hope you enjoyed this tour of the top 10 social sites for moms. If you have your own favorite that is not listed above, please feel free to share it in the comments.

      Well it's a lot harder for the old ways now, with families spread so far apart, people taking jobs in other towns, and mothers not always near their own moms.

      Hi Dolores! I think people connect in different ways these days, but the old ways of momming should not be neglected either!

      Back in my day of momming (is that a word?) they didn't have all the products and information they do now and we had to rely on family and neighbors. These sites sound so helpful and informative for modern mothers!
