With the world of social media constantly changing and evolving, it can be hard to keep up with the latest trends. But don’t worry; I’ve got you covered with this blog post that will introduce you to five alternative social media platforms!
One look at MeWe’s homepage, and you’ll immediately think, “This is the opposite of the social media platforms I know.” And it is! MeWe prides itself on having an honorable business model that treats people as customers, not data.
Here are five things you’ll love about it:
1.There are zero ads. No annoying sponsored content, either.
2.Your newsfeed is yours to control. It won’t be manipulated in any way to sell you anything.
3.You get a texting app just like Messenger.
4.You don’t need to worry about your personal data being sold to big businesses.
5.You get a texting app just like Messenger. It’s as fun and uplifting as other social media platforms, but this time built on trust and love.
Ello started out as a social media platform just like Facebook, but without the ads, the infamous “like” button, and the threats to security and privacy. However, it has since pivoted into a Pinterest-like platform for creators and fans interested in art, fashion, photography, and web culture. Joining the platform is easy. Simply sign up with your name and email address, and you’re good to go.
1.Zero ads and zero privacy threats.
2.You can collaborate with, work with, or even hire other creators.
3.You don’t have to give your real name (a username will do).
4.There are many surprises, and raw, unique creations from people all over the world.
BitChute’s promise is to “put creators first and provide them with a service that they can use to flourish and express their ideas freely.” Put simply, it’s a video-based social media platform just like YouTube… Since its creation in 2017, BitChute has seen its share of criticism. Because without the rules, it’s naturally packed with extremists and hate comments. But ignoring these, you can easily find a ton of interesting content on the platform. There’s news, current events, and a host of topics such as animation, business, education, gardening, health, and more.
When you post something on Facebook, a bunch of ads shows up beside it. The question is, do you earn anything from what you post? Nope. If you dislike this idea, you’ll love Minds. Created as an anti-Facebook social platform, Minds is all about helping content creators flourish.
Here’s how it works:
1.Each time you post, interact with another post, or simply spend time on Minds, you receive a token.
2.You can use your tokens to upgrade your account or boost your reach.
3.You can also cash in on your tokens in USD or Bitcoin.
With Minds, you get all the perks of a thriving social media account…
…but this time you get a share of the revenue through simply sharing your time and talent.
