Health Connect South Radio on Midtown Business RadioX Spotlights Liv2BGirl

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - April 06, 2015) - On March 17, 2015, Health Connect South Radio welcomed to the studio Tosha Marks and Cindy Abel, co-founders of Liv2BGirl. Host CW Hall spoke with these guests about the problems surrounding cyberbulling in social media for girls, and solutions Liv2BGirl seeks to provide.

Liv2BGirl is a mobile app that will give girls a social media environment exclusive to them.  The site is free from cyberbullying and negative, attacking/abusive behaviors -- these being clearly prohibited when a user sets up their profile. As mothers of young girls, Marks and Abel saw their own daughters face cyberbullying and negative experiences in various social media platforms. Liv2BGirl was born out of a desire to offer a positive environment specifically for girls.

The concept of the app proved to have traction with girls when they launched their beta website to evaluate interest and content offerings, gaining roughly 700 users who tested the site. Marks and Abel quickly found that the idea of a social media space free from hurtful, hateful behaviors is appealing to girls -- enough so that average time per visit was roughly 30 minutes.

Liv2BGirl seeks to create a positive place online where all girls feel comfortable being themselves. Where they can connect with other girls that have common interests, goals, concerns. "We are a social media app that wants to inspire girls to spread the love and stop the hate," explained Marks. "This is a place where they can safely share the ideas, thoughts, and images that define them, and learn to respectfully express themselves online."
