A New Networking Portal for Merchant Navy Officers and Sea Lovers
Merchant navy officers are feeling important on their networking site SeaFolks.com, because of the attention they are getting from sea lovers across the world. In such a short time from its inception, seafolks.com has mariners and sea lovers from more than 20 countries registered already.
(PRWEB) March 29, 2008 -- SeaFolks.com is the world's first networking site of its kind, for merchant navy officers and non-marine sea lovers across the world to interact. Features on SeaFolks.com allow members to share their interesting stories and experiences with each other. Marine bloggers across the world are finding their place at SeaFolks. The world is occupied more than 70 percent by water, which makes it a place for lots and lots of sea lovers. Because of SeaFolks.com, passionate sea lovers wanting to grab every opportunity of sea experience have got a new perspective to look at sea. They now have access to interesting and challenging sea deeds and experiences of mariners. Starting from marine uniform to their conduct & discipline, everything is very attractive to civilians. All this has generated a lot of attention to mariners and their professional life via SeaFolks.com.
"SeaFolks.com has given us lots of joy and encouragement!" says Mr Gajanan, a member of SeaFolks.com. Away at sea and detached from a lot of social activities, can make mariners lonely at times. At the same time, in spite of will, sea lovers are deprived of a glimpse of sea by their busy routine. Integrating this way will surely be satisfying to both of them. CEO of SeaFolks.com, Mr Umesh Dhekane said, "This is our sincere attempt to get merchant navy officers and sea lovers together to have new perspective for each other, basically to seek emotional support."
As they say on their site, satisfying social and professional needs of merchant navy officers is the primary reason behind this venture. The site also offers a technical forum for mariners, so that they can be updated with the latest in marine technology and news. Vertical networking sites are fast getting added up on the Internet. Rather than having a networking site about a particular passion, sites like SeaFolks.com, which having to satisfy professional needs also, will surely go long way.
