Beside my studies I am working part time for a company called Miaplaza for some months now. They run a social network with the same name. But I am involved mostly in the newest project: Always Icecream. I would like to present this project in this blog post.
Always Icecream is targeted exclusively at elementary and middle school girls. The special thing about it is that it motivates the girls to practice science, geography, language and other topics. By practicing these the girls can earn a virtual currency called "Scoops" which can be spend to play fun games, feed virtual pets and watch entertaining age-appropriate videos.
Because the girls are required to exchange secret "friendship codes" in person before they can become "friends" on Always Icecream, this site is safer than similar sites. Moreover, there is absolutely no advertising. Instead, it is funded by a modest monthly membership fee. (There is no risk in trying it out, because a money back guarantee is offered.)
If you are interested you may want to watch the following video which shows you some parts of Always Icecream.
