Two new social networks provide diabetes support
Social networking is getting a disease-specific spin with two news sites devoted to diabetes. DiabeTeens.com from The HealthCentral Network aims to help diabetic teens connect with each other online and provide information about type 1 diabetes. The site features blogs written by diabetic teens and an advice column. Users can also create their own diabetes blogs. The other new site is the Canadian-based Wellocities. The online community, available for free throughout Canada, combines a national Web directory of health services with social networking. Wellocities says it features Canada's first and only nationwide health directory of traditional and nontraditional health services and private and public providers.
