Largest Military Social Network Connects over 400,000 Military Spouses Worldwide
SAN FRANCISCO – As a way to connect, inform and empower America's military spouses located around the world, Military.com today announced the launch of Military Spouse Network (http://spouse.military.com). This free social network is the largest online community for the over one million spouses and significant others of Active Duty, Reserve, and Guard forces1. Military.com, a site within the Monster Worldwide (NASDAQ:MNST) network, is the largest military and veteran membership organization, with over eight million members and 7.9 million monthly unique visitors2.
The Military Spouse Network provides this active group with a destination to share experiences, trade lessons learned, find neighborhood or school information when relocating, use military discounts, maintain connection with spouse clubs and other organizations and professionally network with peers. Most importantly, the Military Spouse Network offers an informal support system which endures over time and defies geographical confines.
"The nature of military life creates a bond among spouses, and this group is eager to lend a hand to one another," said Andi Hurley, creator of Military.com's SpouseBUZZ blog (www.spousebuzz.com). "While there is no single location where this growing population can connect in person, the Military Spouse Network will provide the more than 435,000 Military.com spouse members with access to an interactive, responsive and supportive online community."
Military Spouse Network members can build profiles to share their stories and areas of expertise. The network also features access to military benefits updates, discounts, scholarship information, career resources, discussion boards and installation information. A Military.com "Spouse of The Day" section will also showcase the life and successes of a member.
Military Spouse Network is an expansion of the thriving Military Spouse community at Military.com, which includes:
- SpouseBuzz, a blog run by military spouses that addresses issues affecting military spouses worldwide, and
- Military.com's family discussion boards, a forum where members can post questions, concerns and tips for other military families.
Military Spouse Network also complements the Veterans Career Network (www.Military.com/network) where over 500,000 veterans have volunteered to help others veterans find careers in their field, location or organization.
