The anonymous sharing platform of Experience Project continues to reflect the pulse of what's truly on people's minds, in this case providing a supportive place for people to express their concerns, struggles and solutions with the challenging economy
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) July 14, 2008
As the worldwide economy continues to falter, Experience Project (http://www.experienceproject.com), the leading Social Experience Website, reports people are increasingly turning online for emotional support, advice and commiseration to deal with its impact. While financial difficulties are critical to determining an individual's quality of life, they are also fiercely sensitive matters that are difficult to discuss for fear of embarrassment or judgment. Experience Project's anonymous online sharing and support platform is helping thousands of members find each other to share tips, discuss challenges, vent, and seek advice in a comfortable, accepting environment of peers.
Over the last several weeks, Experience Project has seen dramatically increasing activity in groups such as, "I Am Facing Bankruptcy", "I Love to Travel, But I Can't Afford It," and "I Hate Paying So Much for Gas." Groups related to the economy, financial problems, the credit crunch and the housing crisis contain tens of thousands of personal stories and conversations around how to cope with and survive the difficult economy. Members rally around each other to provide support, commentary and tips on how to handle the financial and emotional implications of an economic recession.
"The anonymous sharing platform of Experience Project continues to reflect the pulse of what's truly on people's minds, in this case providing a supportive place for people to express their concerns, struggles and solutions with the challenging economy," said Armen Berjikly, CEO and founder of Experience Project. "As everyday people increasingly turn online to discuss the topics that matter most in their lives, it is incredibly gratifying to see our community become a positive, supportive and non-judgmental nexus for any conversation-- often turning strangers into friends."
A recent Experience Project "Question of the Day" polled members of the free site on what tips they had for saving money. Members responded with dozens of ideas, including:
- Using public transportation instead of driving
- Only using cash for purchases, and leaving credit cards at home
- Writing shopping lists before leaving the house, and not buying anything outside of them
- Maximizing employer tax withholdings, and getting the excess back as a refund
Experience Project continues to grow into the definitive online resource for people who need a comfortable place to share all the topics they are passionate about, tell their stories and interact in a supportive way with like-minded individuals who share their experiences. Particularly in the midst of landmark events impacting society, such as a struggling economy or same-sex marriage, Experience Project sees a commensurate rise in activity around the topics at the top of society's mind, and its veil of anonymity and positive environment provides deep insights into how people are honestly feeling. Research findings consistently indicate that individuals with supportive outlets in which to express their feelings, emotions and aspirations are significantly healthier than those who don't have such resources.
