Social Platform Connects Parents While Avoiding The Pitfalls of Facebook

Chairman Mom looks to bring working parents together while evading issues like the misuse of user information and problematic comments

CEO of Pando Sarah Lacy felt isolated as one of the few female leaders in Silicon Valley, so she decided to create the social platform Chairman Mom where mothers and working parents in general could exchange ideas and tips, connecting and supporting one another without some of the problems associated with other social media sites like Facebook.

Facebook has been in the news lately in regards to its misuse of users’ personal information, particularly toward ad sales. Chairman Mom is combating this by not having ads, instead generating its revenue by charging subscribers $5 per month.


Another concern of Facebook users is the comment thread, which can often devolve into petty arguments and name-calling. Chairman Mom will not include comment threads, instead replacing them with a simple questions and answer forum. Users can also remain anonymous if they choose to do so.
