Montreal, Canada (PressExposure) September 04, 2008 -- Fat is Beautiful Inc. announces the launch of http://www.fatisbeautiful.com, a supportive, accepting community where big people can share their pictures and voice their thoughts openly without worrying about prejudice or misunderstanding. With the increasing popularity of social networking and online photo and video sharing sites such as MySpace, hi5, and YouTube, people are encouraged to reveal their true selves and build online relationships based on common interests. Unfortunately, for obese people who may already feel isolated, many online communities do not protect them from the same harsh judgment and rejection they face in real life. Fatisbeautiful.com allows its members to create and manage their own content, giving them a sense of control and freedom. Built with web 2.0 technology, the site has a fresh, clean look that members will enjoy using.
Says founder Sidney Bitton, âI wanted to create a space where we can post our videos with dignity. Overweight people deserve to feel good about themselves, and should be able to enjoy sharing their pictures and thoughts with other people who respect them and think they are beautiful. I believe that by providing a positive environment, fatisbeautiful.com will help fill a void for overweight people and allow them to benefit from honest, open online relationships. We do have personal ads, but fatisbeautiful.com is a community first, and a dating site second.â
Users can join fatisbeautiful.com with a Silver membership for free as an introductory special. As members, users can post written entries, photos and videos, and then control which friends can access their posted content. A chat room provides a space for live discussions, and personal ads with targeted searches help soul mates find each other. For more information, visit http://www.fatisbeautiful.com.
Fat is Beautiful Inc. is a privately-held company whose mission is to help overweight people overcome a lifetime of prejudice, misunderstanding and rejection in order to have relationships based on respect, common interests, and companionship.
