She Chooses (TM) is the social network for women whose members choose what, how, and with whom they share. She Chooses features an algorithm-based sharing component that helps women ask themselves what they’re feeling and thinking prior to making a choice – Feel. Think. Choose. Offering the opportunity to privately consider members’ publicly shared choices ranked appreciatively by other members, She Chooses fosters uniquely meaningful personal reflection and authentic communication in the company of other women.
