Lake Grove, NY, August 09, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- SocialPeer is proud to announce the launch of their new website.
SocialPeer was designed with the needs of the social welfare professional and educational communities in mind. Social Networking for Social Workers. SocialPeer wanted to create an open, honest and friendly online community where those involved in the field of social work could take advantage of today’s rapidly developing technologies to reach out to one another. Their core philosophy is to Congregate, Communicate and Advocate. To gather together on SocialPeer, to freely exchange ideas, offer peer support and ultimately to help others enact positive change both in their own lives and the lives of those they interact with on a daily basis be they colleagues, clients, etc.
SocialPeer is, simply put, an online social networking community for social workers similar in many regards to Facebook in that you do have the ability to create a profile, find and join groups, friend request others, etc. They aim to offer an online alternative to the office or classroom where everyone can reach out to like-minded individuals for advice, counsel and support. A semi-anonymous way to sift through opinions and options or maybe just to receive a pat on the back for a job well done. A place to run an idea by a colleague, to solicit the advice of a fellow student or to help mentor a younger entrant into the field of social work.
Above and beyond offering a professional environment to communicate, learn and grow, they also strive to cultivate a community where long lasting friendships can take root. SocialPeer can help others to stay in touch with old colleagues, to keep tabs on fellow graduates of your alma mater or more importantly to engender new acquaintances with others who can relate to and understand exactly what someone may be going through at any given time.
