Group hug

Group hug

group hug is a website that publishes anonymous confessions. Readers of the site are encouraged to "confess" using a simple form. All confessions go through a lengthy public screening process before appearing on the main page. The site was launched in October 2003 by Gabriel Jeffrey and it remains a "spare-time project" of Jeffrey and Adam Bregenzer.

As of 2005, the site is quite popular, appealing to both voyeuristic and exhibitionist tendencies, having more than 400,000 confessions. A book, "Stoned, Naked and Looking in My Neighbor's Window" (ISBN 1-932112-36-7 published by Justin, Charles & Company), compiles confessions from the site. There is also a UK-specific edition of the book (ISBN 0-7432-6826-1 published by Simon & Schuster UK).

Due to its popularity the site has now a European (Dutch-speaking) version.

group hug created a podcast, called Audiocrush, "a Podcast about confessions, music, and everything else." group hug is predated by the Apology Project and digitally by Not Proud. Not Proud was started three years earlier in 2000.
