The social networking world in India is mainly ruled by the global giants such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ & Pinterest amongst others. Now, India, the second largest market in the social media space will witness its own personal social network – Vebbler.com. Founded by 23-year-old Sahil Bhagat and engineered by a young and dynamic team mostly in their early 20s, Vebbler.com is India’s first clutter free, personal social network.
Launched on 31st July, 2013, in Beta, Vebbler is developed with a mission to create a world where people can have more meaningful conversations with different relationships in their lives without one aspect of their life spilling into another. One of the first social web startups in India designed on Crowd Layering Model (CLM),Vebbler offers a complete separate space for every relationship including family, work, friends and acquaintance. Vebbler is like a personal diary, in this world of newspapers, where one can express themselves freely. One of the highlight of the website is its clutter free & simple, yet beautiful design and philosophy.
Commenting on the launch of Vebbler, Mr. Sahil Bhagat, Founder-vebbler.com said, “Today, our parents, teachers, colleagues and even bosses are present on social media. There is a need for an evolved method of connecting, which could easily help a user to layer their friends and other relationships, such as workmates and family. Vebbler is that platform which allows people to connect with their close ones without one relationship spilling into another”. He further added saying, “Within days of launching, Vebbler is garnering overwhelming response, even outside India from countries like USA, United Kingdom, UAE, Australia, Sri Lanka and even places like Norway, Philippines and Qatar.”
