Finer day

If you love the idea of Facebook but are wary about posting your information on the web, or are puzzled by all that’s possible on the site, is an alternative that’s perfect for families who want to keep in touch, no matter how far apart they live.

While it seems these days there are more social networking sites than people in Australia, it seems there is finally one that is straightforward, easy to understand and catered to career minded Australian’s with (or without) families.

The good folk at have created a social networking site that is not specifically catered to Gen X and Y. There is no mention of Poking, Tagging, Twitpiccing or any of the other nonsensical jargon that these sites have managed to carry into the modern day lexicon, instead what has done is created an easy to use site that is fun for the whole family.

The major benefit of Finer Day is its simplicity. It subtracts flashy graphics and complicated hyperlinks for large text, easy to follow buttons and a basic outline. Instead of just social events, pictures and joke groups, has included an online diary, links to online shopping, games, and a homepage that has further links to news, travel and many more of your favourite websites. It’s a breeze to set up and within hours you could wonder how you ever lived without it.

So if you feel Facebook, Myspace and Twitter have passed you by but want a simplified solution for keeping in touch with family and friends, as well as an all-encompassing social planning centre, then head to and create yourself a profile.
