Disabled Get Their Own Tailored Social Networking Website

Disabled Get Their Own Tailored Social Networking Website


A new social networking website specifically aimed at disabled people has been launched.

Disabilinet Homepage

Disabilinet.com has been developed by a team of disability specialists and pioneering online developers. It is specifically designed for less able individuals to engage globally within a social media environment.

Successful entrepreneur Mike Simmonds, from Whitstable in Kent who has extensive experience in the field of mobility and disability, came up with the Disabilinet.com concept.

Mike is determined that the site will grow into the most popular portal for all disabled individuals worldwide.

Like Facebook members will sign up and have their own page with a link to their friends as well as links to a variety of useful pages of discussion and help for users.

As user numbers begin to grow, the site will develop organically to cater for popular trends and it is the intention of the founder that Disabilinet.com will become the platform to establish a foundation which provides specialist assistance and mobility equipment.

As a non-profit charitable initiative, it is hoped that the Disabilinet Foundation, set up alongside this dynamic new website will not only assist people online by providing information, but will progress towards physically helping certain individuals through specialist equipment provision funded by Disabilinet.com advertising revenue.

Mike explains: “Disabilinet.com is a fresh and original take on social media. We researched all the current online sites for disabled people and concluded there was a need for a different approach. Disabilinet.com has been especially designed for people with disabilities so they can freely communicate with one another and share experiences in a safe and secure environment. Disabilinet.com is different to social media sites such as Facebook primarily through its content and user base so that specific news, views and topics relevant to less able people can be quickly accessed. From my experiences and listening to disabled people, there is a real need to share images, advice and viewpoints as many find it difficult to discover the best way to improve well-being or access credible information. Whether people have become recently disabled, or continue to live with a medical condition, Disabilinet.com will open up a fantastic new window to the potential opportunities out there through sharing stories and thoughts. On behalf of the Disabilinet.com team, we are all incredibly excited about this new launch and feel confident it will become the number one site for all disabled people to engage globally.”

Disabilinet.com is a content diverse community website which encompasses many levels of media from blogs and bulletin boards through to the latest relevant YouTube links, specific groups and user profiles.

Each user or ‘friend’ has an individualised page, which can be tailored with images, details and ‘wall comments’ for fellow subscribers to access. Opportunities to share comments and visual material beyond Disabilinet.com are possible with Facebook, Twitter and Google+ links along with live chat ‘MSN style’ boxes and RSS feeds. Navigation is straightforward and simple with clear typography and character size can be increased for users that are partially sited. Initially programmed in English, it is the intention of the Disabilinet.com team to roll out varying language versions which will ultimately link across the world, to produce one portal that all disabled people globally can engage within.
