For those suffering from the “disease of obesity,” there is a social network geared towards helping members overcome their overweight issues, as well as seek out medical experts for advice.
(PR Web) “The entire profile system has been revamped to make it much easier to use and customize,” explained Loi Tran, ObesityHelp Inc. Chief Technology Officer. “The new features provide members with the opportunity to create their own personal web space and to communicate with their friends without logging onto their email accounts. Members will not need to understand HTML in order to jazz up their profiles. Our new point-and-click tools will allow members to personalize their profiles in minutes, by making it simple to upload backgrounds and change fonts, colors and borders to make their profile uniquely theirs.”
ObesityHelp comes across as a mesh between MySpace (done right) and LinkedIn, as it provides an interesting connection between the business world (doctors, medical professionals, etc.) and the personal (everyday people).
Although only boasting over 340,000 members, the site is already drawing a steady stream of traffic which may translate into huge profits via Ad Sense (since medical ads generally earn more per click than most other types, at least to my knowledge).
