Facebook Sucks, cre8Buzz Rocks

By now we all know that Facebook sucks. But did you know that cre8Buzz totally rocks?

"The Antman" (kind of like MySpace's Tom) asked all us Buzz users what they should do to get a "buzz" going about their site. I suggested having a breast feeding friendly user policy, unlike those other guys.

The League of Maternal Justice got an official statement from Antman, after I let them know that I was lobbying Antman on behalf of us moms. Here's what he had to say:

...we will absolutely not remove pictures of women breast-feeding from our site and we welcome anyone who feels we are a better alternative to Myspace and Facebook.

Cre8Buzz is the place where people can be seen, heard and found and interact with communities of like-minded folks. We believe that each community has its topics, issues and means of expression that are unique. Therefore, we at cre8buzz accept all means of expression, including photos, as long as they meet reasonable standards of appropriateness for that community. For Moms, breastfeeding is part of motherhood like dirty diapers and sick kids. We have no issue with members of the Moms community expressing themselves with pictures of breastfeeding.

Via League of Maternal Justice

It's not about showing off our pictures -- it's about policies that make sense.

If you'd like to join the Moms community (where I'm a member), send me an email or leave me a comment and I will send you an invite. Otherwise, cre8Buzz goes live on October 7th. You can pre-register at cre8Buzz now. Show them some love and sign up.

So great..I'm there too. I saw your suggestion about the breastfeeding pictures and thought it was so so smart. Just shows that there is no legal reason Face Book and My Space remove them. We all ready new that but this just proves it to the general public . Thanks

PS I wrote about it on facebook, too--saying that I'd joined to see my roomie's photos, but then you reminded me about the censorship.
