Social Networking App for Minorities
Social Network for Minorities
There are tons of social network app in this world, but as Asian, I'm always feeling like not accepted. Sometimes I got cyber-bullied, had negativec comments, or difficulties in resonating with other people who have popularities.
Here, I'll introduce several social networking apps for minorities!
weBelong: Social Network for minorities
What is weBelong
weBelong is a social network app for young minorities to connect, stay in touch with friends, and find a place to belong. You can easily find like-minded friends and most importantly, almost 75% of them put their own pronouns that people don't misgender you or say disrespectful comments toward you.
How weBelong works?
Likewise Instagram, Twitter or Facebook, you can share some ideas or images with friends or communities. Plus, you can lock your screen that if your friends or parents try to see what you do on weBelong, no one can see that without entering passcodes.
weBelong is private and safe space for you to be yourself.
Founder Yoshua says,
"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 through the app."
Who uses weBelong?
There are a lot of young generations who need to connect with other minorities on weBelong, mostly lgbtq, black and brown, and so on. weBelong is so unique social network that aims to be free from toxic. On other games or social media, people tend to get hooked too much, mentally manipulated by technologies. weBelong is trying to next-gen social app for people, not for companies. It is available for both iOS and Android.

Quilt: Clubhouse for Mental wellness
What is Quilt?
Quilt is the audio social networking for supportive conversation.
Quilt is like being at a friend's home or backyard having open conversations about anything and everything. Here, you can come as you are. There's no judgement, no filters, and you don't have to be an expert to share.
All conversations are community driven. From spirituality, mental health, love and relationships, to career and purpose, we talk about it all.
How Quilt works?
Quilt allows anyone to start a room for a conversation, dropping a line or two of text to describe what they want to talk about. The app is focused on wellness, breaking rooms into three different categories: spiritual and personal development (with conversations around meditation, astrology, human design, etc.), career and purpose (“it was very important to link purpose to it,” said Sumner, “these aren’t networking events”), and relationships, sex and family.
EME Hive: Dating app for Asian communities
What is EME Hive
EME Hive is a community-based, social live streaming app for finding like-minded friends and partners. EME stands for "East Meets East".
Is EME Hive Social Networking?
It could be social networking but widely used for dating for people from Asia, living in the US. It should be 17+ years, and likewise on the other dating sites, scammers are a lot. So just be careful when you use it.
Why Social Networking for minorities
Social networking apps are great, but most people who got attentions are in the main stream that misfits, minorities and differences are feeling left out.
Hope all social media are inclusive, available for all different kinds of people.
