Senior Product Designer
👋🏾Do you love stories and believe that mental wellness should be a priority for everyone?
We do. This is why we're building Fable, a social platform for stories. We’ve started with books and plan to expand into stories that you can listen to or watch with friends.
We are building Fable because stress, anxiety, depression, social isolation are on the rise affecting people globally, across all age and income levels - and we can help. The World Economic Forum projects that mental health disorders will cost a staggering loss in economic output of $16.3 trillion between 2011 and 2030. Stories promote empathy, social perception, emotional intelligence, and other cognitive abilities that can lead to better mental health. Just 30 minutes of reading every day can improve our mental wellbeing. Fable helps people make reading a fun and healthy daily habit.
🏗️ WHAT WE ARE BUILDING
Fable puts the omnipresent mobile screen in service of digital nutrition.
Fable makes it easy for people to discover, join and build communities based on their interest graph. Fable members connect with others who have similar interests and read together, sharing highlights, notes, and comments. We curate the vast body of knowledge that surrounds every book and surface the most interesting bits to make reading much more interactive and fun.
Well-read experts and tastemakers select great books that are featured inside “Fable Folios.” A Fable Folio is a selection of exceptional stories and book recommendations around a particular topic. New Folios are released weekly and offer something for everyone, whether they’re seeking to be entertained, informed, or challenged.
Every day, Fable helps members set and reach their reading goals to reap the wellness benefits of reading. Our communities can set their own book club milestones to pace themselves as they and fill the micro-moments in their lives with stories.
