Goalpost: The Social Way to Quit Smoking

Goalpost is an online solution that brings a social aspect to quitting smoking. As the site says, “Research has shown people are much more likely to quit with the help of their friends and family.” You can invite friends to help support you through Facebook and/or email, plus there is an online community ready to keep you motivated.

When you sign up, you can enter a “Quit Date” which will show up on your website interface and you can also create challenges and goals for your friends.

    Hey Alexis!

    How’s life in the Silicon Valley? It seems that goalpost is very similar to ecentify.com minus the financial aspect of it?

    Have you had a chance to take a look at it?

    Thanks, Arkadiy
