Honolulu, Hawaii — July 28, 2015 — The newly redesigned website of the Pacific Islands Society is now live. IslandsSociety.org aims to make it even easier for the nonprofit’s online users to connect with the issues that matter most to Pacific Islander communities. The new website replaces PacificIslandsSociety.org.

“One of the main objectives of the Pacific Islands Society has always been to provide a virtual platform that bridges the geographic boundaries that separate Pacific Islanders around the world,” say Keiko Ono, the Vice President of the Pacific Islands Society. “IslandsSociety.org gives us the integration and functionality that our online users have long requested. It will make it even easier for the islander diaspora to connect with friends and family back home.”

The new website addresses two main areas of concern for the Pacific Islands Society. First, the website’s new design improves usability. Second, the website supports new functionality that will allow the nonprofit to slowly extend the platform as the organization continues to grow.

“We have found that the vast majority of our users access our site using mobile devices,” says Eddie Walsh, the Founder and President of the Pacific Islands Society. “We have therefore tried our best to optimize the site for these users. We hope that they will find the usability of the site has improved dramatically.”
