Plugging MeWe

Recommended Posts

I deleted my old social media platforms years ago once they began censoring and selling my personal information.  My principles outweigh their tyranny.  Anyway, I found what I think is a good alternative on MeWe.  So I opened an account there.

 

Just sharing.

MeWe is an American social media and social networking service owned by Sgrouples, a company based in Culver City, California. MeWe's light approach to content moderation has made it popular among American conservatives, conspiracy theorists, and anti-vaxxers.[1][2][3] Due to concerns with possible pro-China censorship of Facebook, the site also gained popularity in Hong Kong in November 2020.[4]

I'm all in favour of 'alternative' platforms, but you'll have to forgive my scepticism on this.

 

If MeWe is already being 'denounced' on Wikipedia (which I know is hardly trustworthy itself) as being 'popular' among conservatives and 'conspiracy theorists', one must be reminded of what happened with Parler, which gained a lot of attention late last year and early this year, before it was 'hacked' and then shut down by Amazon Web Services (AWS).

 

Parler has since 're-emerged', yet I don't see or hear people promoting it as much now.

 

I will probably have to look more into this company that owns MeWe, as there has to be some financial benefit for them somewhere, if they are boasting that they do not sell user information/data.

 

If certain people start pushing or promoting MeWe as a platform for people to 'move' to, then I would just be cautious that people are not being led into another honeytrap.

The Left has MeWe in their sites.  It has 15 million users.  The only way to defend MeWe is to join it... strength in numbers.  Without numbers it will fail.
