I like to read about the people out there who have inspirational stories to tell and who do great things to care for the environment and others. PosiPeople gathers all of these stories and it is the one place I visit often for the upbeat kind of content that I think the internet needs more of
San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) August 5, 2008
PosiPeople, a new community-driven forum that highlights positive impact on society and the environment, has been launched today. PosiPeople allows anyone to submit, vote, and comment on any content on the Web that is about positive impact on society and the environment. Some examples of the content that PosiPeople gathers are organic food, renewable energy, recycling, hybrid/electric cars, climate change, and green issues. Anyone can register for a free PosiPeople account today.
PosiPeople works as follows:
1. Any member of the community submits a link to content that is about positive social or environmental impact.
2. The community then votes for the content they like best.
3. Content that receives the most votes in a certain period of time is published to the main page of the site.
Additional PosiPeople features allow users to connect with other users by interacting with them through comments, viewing their profile page, sending them a message, or adding them as a friend (a.k.a. a PosiPal).
Below are some testimonials from PosiPeople's private beta test.
"I read the news everyday, and the amount of depressing information I get everyday really brings down my mood. However, PosiPeople shows that our world today is not as gloomy as it seems. It helps me feel good about the world we are living in, while also providing tips on how we can help make it better. I tend to be a negative person, but PosiPeople has helped me be more uplifting, and now I can always see the good in things," says Danwen, an early PosiPeople user.
"PosiPeople is more than just good news, it is a place where I can read and learn about best-in-class solutions to some of society's most challenging problems. Public charities spent nearly $1 trillion dollars in 2007 solving these challenges,and the mainstream media is almost completely oblivious to the enormous impact that many of these charities are having. Many of these entrepreneurs are so absorbed in their work to improve others' lives that they don't have time nor want to promote themselves. People who enjoy and are good at promoting these entrepreneurs now have a venue to do so, and the general public now has a one-stop location where they can get real content and commentary about sincere, smart people making real impact," says John, another early PosiPeople user.
"I like to read about the people out there who have inspirational stories to tell and who do great things to care for the environment and others. PosiPeople gathers all of these stories and it is the one place I visit often for the upbeat kind of content that I think the internet needs more of," says Evan, another PosiPeople user.
"PosiPeople is a great online resource for anyone who wants to find out more about the things that make a positive impact in our communities," says Pauline, another PosiPeople user.
