Our mission is to deliver the world’s best experience for discovering, reading, and discussing stories with friends; in service of mental wellness. Stress, anxiety, depression, and social isolation are on the rise. Just 30 minutes of reading every day can improve our mental well-being. Stories promote empathy, social perception, emotional intelligence, and other cognitive abilities that can lead to better mental health. Fable helps our community make reading a daily healthy habit for our mental wellbeing. Community members enjoy the many benefits of reading while making deeper human connections with other readers. With a rise in demand for safe, private, and interest-based, online social platforms, Fable puts the omnipresent mobile screen in service of digital nutrition: fostering mental wellness, personal growth, and meaningful connections through reading.
