Tired of Facebook? Especially the ads?
Cant stand the darn things…
I know, a little disingenuous coming from us as we use Facebook advertising but let’s face it eventually something will take over from the social media monster Facebook. Don’t believe me you can check out my latest work on MySpace.
So what coming down the pipe
Enter the by invitation only social platform ELLO
It might very well be the next new thing, or not.
as it runs sans advertising you have to ask how it will support the 35 thousand plus requests
As Ellos manifesto states…
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.
This could be a attractive product to the fed up with Facebook user. More details are on the horizon, but for now be sure to check it out.
My request is already in 🙂
