A Type 2 diabetic for more than 14 years, Sherman, NY-resident John Morris thought he had everything he needed to manage and treat his disease. He was wrong. It wasn't until he became a member of the recently launched social networking Web site Diabetic Connect, that he realized how essential the support of like-minded people was in dealing with diabetes. "The support on the site is fantastic -- it is hard to describe how much love and support and concern there is among the members," Morris told TechNewsWorld.
Considering that there are now so many social networks catering to such a wide range of niches, my biggest problem is finding ones relevant to me and related to my specific interests or product niches. Google seems to be inefficient and returns alot of irrelevant results. A good resource that I use to find them is a search engine called findasocialnetwork.com
the vertical of health related social networks is blooming. there are many new sites offering support and advice for its members under many different categories. i would recommenced visiting http://www.dailystrength.org, http://www.mdjunction.com and try out the www.organizedwisdom.com search. you'll find many people who are there to share ask and get help.
