Foster Faces Update #1

Hello Reader,

So I don’t know if you guys been on Foster Faces the past couple days but there have been some changes to how the website look and operate. For example, the website is much faster and operating more effectively. Another big change to the website is instead of signing in the old fashion way with just hitting the login button, now users can sign in using Facebook. Someone came to me with a question and asked why when they hit the Facebook sign in it say’s Foster fces will receive…..and that’s because when I did my application with Facebook I couldn’t use the word faces because of their trademark. I could file for a name repeal but why go through so much problem when the company isn’t going to approve it anyway. For the people that have logged on Foster Faces, you might have seen a chat box in the corner of your screen which is a new feature that’s going to be up and running in the next couple of days. I’m just having some technical difficulties at the moment. Don’t worry guys, I’m still working on putting the scholarship board up so other foster youth could find resources for school, among some other things. Let me say that some of the biggest change is coming to Foster Faces app though. The app is going to have a new look and the features I mentioned above, so be on the lookout. Again if you have some suggestion or concerns just get in contact with me.

Hello Reader,

Did you know that the foster care system now has its own social media platform? It’s called Foster Faces and it’s basically a facebook, but for the foster care system. The idea came to me around Christmas of 2016 when I was at a Christmas party that’s held by a non-profit for foster youth called Lad Lake. It started when I didn’t know anyone at the party except the members of the Wisconsin Youth Advisory Council and I said how can I change that, so that’s when I came up with the idea Foster Faces. Foster Faces is a social media site where foster youth can share their experiences with each other and possibly build a network. In the next couple months, Foster Faces has some upgrade coming, so be on the lookout for that and there is an app available for Andriod and Apple. It’s free to sign up, but I ask from everyone to keep the site clean of negativity because we all went through different things in life.
