Mumbai, April 2014: The social networking world in India is mainly ruled by the global giants such as Facebook and Twitter amongst others. Now, India, the second largest market in the social media space will witness its own personal social network — Vebbler.com. Founded by 24-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, privacy focused personal social network.
Launched to the public on 12th November, 2013, Vebbler has grown to 65,000 users from 80 countries across the World in just 4 months. 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), Vebbleroffers a complete separate space for every relationship including family, work, friends and acquaintances, something that other social networks lack, creating huge privacy issues. The beauty of the website is its simplicity in design mixed with a robust set of features.
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 as well as other relationships by creating a platform where people can juggle their lives seamlessly. Vebbler is the only platform today which allows people to connect with their close ones without one relationship spilling into another”. He further added saying, “Unlike other platforms that believe in one singular online identity, we believe that people have the right to express themselves differently with different people.”
Some of the salient features which differentiates Vebbler.com, from its competitors, also making it the hottest site on the block are:
- Clubs (for personal sharing): Clubs are the core element for Vebbler’s user experience, which allows a user to add a person into different layers, such as friends, family, workmates and acquaintances.
- Followers (for public sharing): While keeping the relationships in your Clubs, you can follow as many people you find interesting based on similar hobbies and interests, making Vebbler a perfect platform for public & private conversations.
- Recommendations: Recommendations enables you to take advice on various things from your closed ones, hence helping you make more informed decisions. With this feature, you can find people with specific skills or similar interests, find out great restaurants pubs, hangouts, holiday destinations, hair salons, recording studios, movies and television shows to watch or get suggestions on books to read based on genre and much more.

- Bigger and better photos: Profile photos are bigger and photographs are stored in high quality, making Vebbler a delightful platform for photographers and photography enthusiasts to share their talent. They are also layered with privacy, so you can choose who can tag your photos and to whom the photos can be tagged.
- Chat & Private Messaging: Vebbler’s chat is built on top of its Crowd Layering Model, where people can easily toggle their online or offline status of each layer, depending on circumstances around me. So, during a holiday, you can switch off your work layer and still be online to friends and family. Chat and PM also comes with some fun and interesting stickers.
- Wavetags: They are the new, evolved ‘version’ of the Hashtags. Start a ~Wave! Build conversations in real time, follow waves that interest you and see its popularity with the Wave-O-Meter.
- Search: On Vebbler, social search is beyond searching things by name. You can search people by interests, search topics and conversations, along with waves and photos that interest you.
