New Social Network Offers Anxiety Support
Anxiety Social Net is a new social network looking to help anxiety sufferers who have trouble socializing with larger social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.
Some people believe Facebook is the entire social media solution anyone would ever need; this is far from the truth. While there is no “replacing” Facebook, there is a growing trend towards the interest based networks.
“I am on Facebook and twitter as well, but I feel so much safer here, because I know people understand, and I don’t have to go into depth about what I am going through, everyone already knows this reduces the stress level.” - Mary Jones (ASN User)
In all their popularity, the “general” social networks are not always able to deeply fulfill their interest based needs of the users. In particular, when it comes to health and sensitive personal topics, such general social networks miss the mark entirely. They are too public and at times, impersonal.
The National Institute of Mental Health estimates that anxiety disorders affect as many as 40 million Americans age 18 or older. AnxietySocialNet aims to help people suffering from anxiety disorders address their symptoms, find information and network with others. ASN was created to help sufferers of agoraphobia, social anxiety disorders, obsessive compulsive disorder or any of the other forms of anxiety affecting many.
The new social network is more than just a social network, but a support system as well. There is no pretense since everyone on it is suffering from similar issues of anxiety. Based on a short questionnaire people’s moods are evaluated and published on their profile page.
As with their beginnings, social networking has the ability to provide an outlet for people who have difficulty interacting with people in person. It operates as a gateway that helps people overcome their problems with anxiety instead of simply helping them exist with them.
