Make friends and Celebrate Differences online
weBelong is a space where all of them celebrate their differences. Old social media makes people connected and empower individuals who can show off. But old social media is not for people with differences.
weBelong is different.
We have different skin colors, different abilities, different strengths, and different weaknesses. We have different points of view, different religions, and different sexual orientations.
Our differences make us who we are. Everyone is different and those differences enrich communities' diversities. On weBelong, no matter who you are, you are valid.
When we know how we’re different, and feel comfortable with those differences, we can then start to see our similarities and find even more common ground.
We want people to see us, understand us, and appreciate us for who we are.
We want to celebrate who we are and our gender, sexual orientation heritage, our culture, our religion, our family tree.
