Snabbo is a community where experience and knowledge are curated and reliable information is generated. Members spark conversations by asking questions and providing advice to assist older adults, caretakers, researchers, and those associated with aging issues and transitions. By sharing and exploring, Snabbo propels innovative ideas on how to age well in the 21st century.
Snabbo was launched in 2009 as a social network allowing only the Baby Boomer generation to join. Over time, we recognized the desire to socialize and share within a community is, in fact, an ancient tradition and not limited to one particular peer group. The Snabbo Team decided to enhance our social networking origins with more of an emphasis on member-driven discussions and groups. We address the challenge of locating trustworthy online information by continually aggregating peer-reviewed websites and products related to aging. Our Snabbo Tips features experts who offer “aging hacks” in conversational bite-sized videos. These informational outlets enable members to experience a more informed sense of control over their decisions, actions and environment thereby positively influencing their quality of life, health, and well-being. We hope Snabbo members may even be stimulated to create programs and solutions of their own!
