Summary

A social network aimed particularly at people with an illness. Allows the user to connect with family, friends, carers. A personal ‘website’ can be created, then updated whenever the user chooses. A ‘Journal’ can be added (with photographs included), to keep visitors to the site informed. Visitors can leave messages on a ‘Guestbook’. The sites of family and friends can be similarly accessed. An ‘Activity Planner’ allows the day’s events to be planned, or care to be coordinated.
