I'm looking for more friends on the Buddhist path and would there for like to ask: Are there any social networking sites for Buddhists? Some features that I'm looking for:

  • Friends list
  • Seeing online status of friends
  • Sending direct messages to a friend
  • Chatting with a friend
  • Open forums
  • Sharing images
  • News feed

Grateful for help!

Kind Regards, Tord


My favorite is NewBuddhist, but I don't know that it has all those features.

I'd be interested in developing this as a project, I have been thinking of the "digital sangha" social network and I'm relieved I'm not the only one.

  • Thank you! I will sign up on this site and check it out more in detail. I used Oxwall to create an online community for a Sangha i was a member on a couple of years ago. I'm thinking of using it again for creating a more general social network for Buddhists. If you are interested in knowing more please contact me at: tord (dot) dellsen (at) protonmail (dot) com – sunyata Mar 7 '17 at 21:46

Dhamma Wheel and its sister site Dharma Wheel are forums where you can add friends, send direct messages, and chat with others.

Those two are probably the closest you will get to a Buddhist social networking site, but keep in mind that they are primarily discussion forums.
