Halka: A Unique Empathy-Based Community

This post brought to you by halka. All opinions are 100% mine.

Today almost everyone is on Facebook, Twitter, Google +, or another social media network!  It’s a world where we use social media to connect with our loved ones, share pictures, and chat about our day.  Everyone is online, sharing pictures, posting about their day, but how many of the people really understand you?

The best way to understand people is to look at things through their shoes, or empathize with them as if you are understating their problems from their shoes.  Did you now there is an Empathy-based community?  That’s right, a community with real emotions and real people!  It’s called Halka, and it helps you discover people who understand you and you make friendships based on understanding.  Sounds pretty interesting doesn’t it?  I thought it did, so I had to check it out!

So what all can you do on Halka?  There is all kinds of great things:

  • See posts from hundreds of people.
  • Read everything you want: things people bought, things that are annoying them, things that happened at work today, etc.
  • Like, share, or comment on things
  • Helps make opening up less scary because you are opening up to people who understand.
  • Post what you are feeling: Love, Anger, Joy, Sadness, Surprise, Fear, etc.

And tons of other awesome things!

Halka is based on sharing your experiences, and empathizing with one another at the same time.  Users can guess the emotions that were felt by the person who shared their experience, or if you have faced a similar situation you can share how you felt at that moment in your life.  This makes it easier for the person who shared this experience to see the users who understand them best.

I think it’s great what Halka is doing.  It’s normal for people not to notice they are losing their ability to empathize with others, especially in an online environment.  When people talk about something that is happening in their life, they are looking for people to understand how they feel – empathy.  Everyone needs empathy, if you talk to someone because you have a broken heart it’s normal to want to talk to someone who can understand how you are feeling.  When you post something on Halka you will receive dozens of responses, which makes it easy for you to find relevant posts, written by people who have walked in your shoes, and understand how you are feeling.  It’s a great way to connect with people who truly understand what you are dealing with.

There’s stories about cheating spouses, loved ones who have passed, people purchasing new homes, and all other walks of life.  Halka is a site that will bring a different value to everyone, as we are all different people.  Halka is a unique site, it’s more than just another social media website.  It’s a great place to share stories, as well as help others in some small way!  Halka encourages people to relate their life experiences in a safe environment, and identify to those feelings.  It promotes reconnecting emotions on a personal level by asking people when they post to an experience to share what emotions they felt when dealing with the same situation.

It’s hard to explain the way Halka works.  It’s a community that is worth checking out, signing up takes about 2 minutes, it’s easy, and once you are in you can begin to navigate the site.  It’s also a great way to improve your empathic skills, which is important in relationships of all forms.

I could use a bit of that right now. Would I go there? Probably not. Not without a lot of thought first. It sounds great and it’s nice to it’s there. But, everything you say on a computer is basically there. Public knowledge. Is it a secure site?

It sounds like an interesting community, I just might give it a try. Sometimes you just want to post something, especially if you’re feeling angry, and this sounds like the place to do it. Thank you for sharing this.

I love that Halka is based on sharing your experiences, and empathizing with one another at the same time. And how users can guess the emotions that were felt by the person who shared their experience, or if you have faced a similar situation you can share how you felt at that moment in your life!!

This is an interesting idea. Some people seem to be naturally empathetic, and others not so much. This could be an especially good site for those who need to grow in that area. I’m thinking about my son!

I’ve never heard of Halka! It sounds like the site has managed to integrate social networking with the idea of an intimate online community. Very interesting!
