New Religious Christian Social Network, ‘Godinterest’ Inspired by Pinterest

Taking on the idea behind Pinterest, Godinterest is a new Christian social network that has given religious communication a new meaning. It allows members to share and upload photographs from all over the world and create boards for connecting better. It is perfect for those who like Pinterest but have wanted to share only within the Christian community; Godinterest is a good religious alternative while being family friendly. Created and established by Dean Jones, a devout Christian, the online photo sharing social network will stress on only Christian content.

35-year old Dean Jones is based in London and said that Pinterest is known world-wide for letting members share a lot of content but is mostly photo sharing. As Christians, most of the people need to consider the values that they are bound to by the religion and with Christian social network Godinterest people will be able to share exclusively within a Christian community.

He said that in the busy pace of life today, Christian ministers need to stay in touch with the people through social networks. With this specific social media channel, even beginners will be able to connect, advertise and talk about their business brands.

It has been designed such that the social network is only accessible to the students and the teachers.

As per Damon Donaldson, who is the head teacher at the primary school, Britannia Bridge the best aspect of the social network for students and teachers is that it is not just an idea but it is working and primary school students all across the country shall benefit from it. As it helps them learn how to safely use online communication instead of risking their personal safety online. Head of IT at the school, Maria Temel said that they had a lot of negative cases at school due to the children’s misuse of social media and as there was no means to help them learn safety online, we decided to build it.

New Social Network Choices for Healthcare Professionals and Patients

Most of the health care professionals use social networks to stay in touch with colleagues, friends and family while it has been seen that most of them join specific healthcare social networks to collaborate and stay in touch. The best aspect of exclusive social networks is that the providers find accurate advice on medical issues, know and share job openings and discuss research with peers. While the social networks focused on patients, there are numerous social media channels built around a specific disease. It gives patients assistance to deal with the symptoms, know treatments and provides a support community for insights, leads on managing the disease.

While CureDiva, a social network for breast cancer survivors and patients has high traffic as per Ester Gofer, co-founder. She says that the users can choose the level of privacy they need for sharing content. Doximity CEO Jeff Tangney, as quoted in InformationWeek had expressed his opinion that having a doctors’ only social network was important as the fine line demarcating patients was needed to maintain professionalism and sanity. As even friendly terms with patients on social networks is viewed as privacy violations.

Additionally, the security problems usually associated with Facebook and the other networks makes health care professionals and patients hesitate while posting details.  While these exclusive health care and patient focused social networks have stringent privacy policies and makes the users feel secure about expressing their private information.

Chinese Users Eyed By Social Networks Globally

In Beijing, the key topic of discussions and debate at the Global Mobile Internet Conference was social networks and media. Although there is a move towards stricter control and stiff competition in the social media industry which is dominated by local companies, global social networks are looking to enter the Chinese homes.

Over 600 million Chinese using internet and half of them logging into social media, it is about the population of about 5 European countries.  In China, Weibo (like Twitter) and WeChat (WhatsApp and Facebook) are the social networking services as Facebook is not authorized yet. Even then, it has over 820,000 users. Though most of the international social media companies are not available in China, a few of them are making inroads in the intensely competitive market. LinkedIn is one of the few companies that has launched a Chinese language service and has over 4 million users.

President of LinkedIn China, Derek Shen said that most of the top management has Japanese and Americans globally but there aren’t many Chinese. This is because China still doesn’t have a good platform to connect the professionals internationally. Now the reach of LinkedIn China is expanding through Chinese social media. Chinese advertise on social networks to connect with oversees suppliers, which has been successful. Making inroads into the tightly controlled social media, foreign social networks will need to adapt to cultural, language and regulatory barriers.
