Family lifers is a hub for bloggers, job seekers and an avenue for wealth creation for many Nigerian youths, founder, Bisi Adewale said. We are creating a platform where our youths can have a voice. We are determined to make this platform our own Facebook. This platform is going to be linking unemployed graduates with employers of labour because we have a portal on the site where job seekers can upload their CVs and employers can access such CVs. We are also determined to employ about 300 youths. On the site we have news feed, a universal blog where people can access free information. We also have social media where people interact and make friends. On our site, whatever you post is immediately seen by all your followers unlike on Facebook where only less than five percent pf your followers see your post.

The new platform will also give room for young Nigerians to interact and showcase their skills, products and services free of charge. It will also be an avenue for unemployed graduates to be linked with employers of labour as they upload their Curriculum Vitae on the platform,’’ he said.
