Friendship Exchange Program
One unique idea to make friends better is to organize a "Friendship Exchange Program."
The program would involve pairing up with a friend and spending a day or weekend living each other's lives.
For example, if you are a city dweller, you could spend a day with a friend who lives in the countryside and experience their daily routines, hobbies, and activities. Alternatively, if you have a friend who works in a different industry than you, you could spend a day at their workplace and learn about their job and industry.
The idea is to step out of your comfort zone and gain a new perspective on your friend's life. By doing so, you'll learn more about their interests, challenges, and values, which can help deepen your friendship. Additionally, the experience can be a fun adventure and create unique memories that you can share and talk about for years to come.

Make friends and Celebrate Differences online
weCall is a space where all of them celebrate their differences. Old social media makes people connected and empower individuals who can show off. But old social media is not for people with differences.
weCall is different.
We have different skin colors, different abilities, different strengths, and different weaknesses. We have different points of view, different religions, and different sexual orientations.
Our differences make us who we are. Everyone is different and those differences enrich communities' diversities. On weBelong, no matter who you are, you are valid.
When we know how we’re different, and feel comfortable with those differences, we can then start to see our similarities and find even more common ground.
We want people to see us, understand us, and appreciate us for who we are.
We want to celebrate who we are and our gender, sexual orientation heritage, our culture, our religion, our family tree.
