I just received my invitation to Ello today! I’m now a member of this ad free social network! I am just now checking it out and getting acquainted. It’s been many years since I stopped using Facebook and I think I’ve finally found its replacement. If you want to know more about Ello check it out here. Ello is by invitation only so if you want to join you have to send a request. I can also send out invites, so if you would like to request one from me feel free to comment below or send me an email and I’ll get right on it. Read Ello’s manifesto below!
Have a wonderful weekend!
“Your social network is owned by advertisers.
Every post you share, every friend you make and every link you follow is tracked, recorded and converted into data. Advertisers buy your data so they can show you more ads. You are the product that’s bought and sold.
We believe there is a better way. We believe in audacity. We believe in beauty, simplicity and transparency. We believe that the people who make things and the people who use them should be in partnership.
We believe a social network can be a tool for empowerment. Not a tool to deceive, coerce and manipulate — but a place to connect, create and celebrate life.
You are not a product.”
I agree with this! Oh, and don’t worry I’m still blogging! 😉
