Kiwibox.com Enters Spanish and Latin Markets -- Launches Spanish Language Integration on Kiwibox.com and Kwick.de!
NEW YORK, May 25, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Kiwibox network proudly announces the integration of Spanish language versions on its social networking websites. The US based platform Kiwibox and the European KWICK! now each support Spanish versions, and are creating their own place in Spanish and Latin markets. Through detection of members' system settings, the social networking platforms will automatically update to Latin users' preferred language, allowing for the full use of the Kiwibox community without language barriers.
Current and new users alike will be able to experience Kiwibox and KWICK! functionality in the Spanish language, retain the ability to interact with users of all languages, and most importantly connect with other native Spanish speaking users in an environment that celebrates culture and connectivity. This will make Kiwibox and KWICK! part of the handful of networks that support multilingual features on the site as a whole.
The Kiwibox network is excited about the growth potential of each site as there remains substantial growth potential in the online Spanish-speaking market; of the approximate global Spanish population of 423 million people, only 43% currently use the internet and even less (23%) use social networking on a daily basis.
Simultaneously, Kiwibox.com and KWICK!'s mobile application growth, and an upcoming multilingual version of the app, parlays directly into the Spanish language market on mobile platforms as well.
With over 10 million registered users, the Kiwibox network maintains its unique user-base through interaction via digital and event based formats, allowing for a breadth of new users to meet and develop friendships while experiencing exclusive benefits for membership alone. As the network continues to attract users from all walks of life, inclusion of a Spanish language version will further continue a pattern of providing an engaging and meaningful platform to further one's social experience online alongside others who are looking for a distinct networking experience.
