Tangle – The Online Community for Christians


With thousands of social networking sites in existence, devoted to everything from friends and family to cars and cats, it should come as no surprise that there are a number of social networking sites devoted to religion, too. In the two years since it launched, Tangle has become one of the best known and most popular online networks aimed exclusively at those of the Christian faith. Created with the mission of helping its users build a global community among likeminded individuals, Tangle has become a one-stop resource for those looking to keep in touch with friends, discover new music, and watch inspiring videos all with the Christian ideals in mind.

Signing up on Tangle is free, and creating a personalized profile is easy to do. Once you’ve joined the online community, get started by searching for friends or browsing nearby churches and ministries. You can post prayers on Tangle’s community “prayer wall” or click on the “online bible” to check out the top 10 most viewed verses each day. Users with a common purpose can create and design their own group pages, where you can post blogs, videos, and other media content that might be of interest to likeminded friends.

Thanks to Tangle’s extensive safety monitors, people of all ages can surf the site without the fear of coming across anything inappropriate or obscene. Whether you’re looking for a place to keep in touch with your friends from church, learn about new missionary projects, or share music from your favorite band with others, Tangle is a site that we would recommend that all Christians check out for themselves.

Practical Uses:

  • Use group pages to communicate with your friends from church

  • Quickly find a favorite passage in the bible
