Diabetes related Social Networking....

Diabetes-related Social Networking

The online social networking scene has hit the diabetes world. Not that this is particularly new. Diabetes-related online social networks have been around a few years now and places like facebook, myspace, LinkedIn, and Flickr have been around even longer.

According to Manny Hernandez, founder of TuDiabetes, there are at least two dozen diabetes-related social networks (as of May 2009). I wouldn’t be surprised if there are even more now. Because I found eight in about 15 minutes of searching online. Below are the ones I found and I’ve also included a brief description taken from their site:

Site Description

tudiabetes “a community of people touched by diabetes, run by the Diabetes Hands Foundation“

juvenation “a Type 1 Diabetes community created by the JDRF.”

dLife Community “information, inspiration, and connection with others who share your challenges and concerns.” “a free social network for diabetics and people with an interest in diabetes.”

diabetesTalkfest “Linking Diabetics Coast 2 Coast”

My Diabetes “The community for patients, friends, families and healthcare professionals.”

Diabetic Rockstar “a social network dedicated to breaking down stereotypes and beliefs commonly associated with diabetics.”

Present Diabetes (for diabetes medical professionals)

We Are Diabetic “The Social Support Network for The Diabetic Community
