Los Angeles, CA (PRWEB) December 5, 2006
WebTribes Inc, an innovator in social networking, announced today the launch of four first-of-their-kind groundbreaking online communities: http://www.depressiontribe.org, http://www.myanxiety.org, http://www.myocd.org, http://www.addictiontribe.com. WebTribes Inc. has developed a network of online communities designed to benefit those dealing with depression, anxiety, OCD (Obsessive Compulsive Disorder) and addiction -- all disorders in which journaling, sharing and group therapy are proven techniques for recovery, according to the National Institute of Metal health. This marks the beginning of a new trend in social networking, the fastest growing phenomenon on the Internet.
"Our websites bring people together with similar life issues from around the world that are in need of support. We believe that connecting and communicating with others will have a positive affect on peoples healing and their lives," states Ryan FitzGerald, Internet pioneer and founder of WebTribes Inc.
Each community website offers users a free membership where they can create their own profile and online journal. Users are able to upload and share pictures, as well as select from a catalog of hundreds of music videos to set the mood for their personal page. Members have even stated the functionality is "better than MySpace," with it's clean, dynamic and easy to navigate design. Each community also encourages social interaction with polling, groups, forums and chat features. The website even offers a "fun section" to keeps things light, offering games and silly Internet videos.
More importantly, users feel free to express themselves, in this non-judgmental socially safe environment -- saying things they "wouldn't say on MySpace." Many members have become evangelists for these communities, welcoming new members and promoting the websites across the Internet on their own accord.
"It's one thing to read statistics, but to see names, faces and stories is another," one member says. While another member calls it, "The most caring and understanding website I have found."
