Many people are searching for other options for social media platforms that are less-censored. But what are the social media alternatives that are currently available?
There are several out there but understand that they are small, and you may not find your Aunt Annie or Uncle Steve on these platforms – not yet, anyway. You will be able to voice your opinion without fear of censorship or worse yet, be banned. We have comprised a list of the top new social media platforms below and the links to create accounts.
MeWe calls themselves The Next-Gen Social Network. They raised $4.8 million and launched back in 2016 to take on Facebook and Twitter. They’re about 6 million members strong so far and Mark Weinstein, the founder, plans for it to be 500 million by 2022.
Gab.ai is a platform that is similar to Twitter. You have 300 characters with which to make your point. It has been called the Alt-Right’s social media alternative and although Gab itself doesn’t censor its users, Microsoft has threatened to take them down due to “hate speech.” A lot of folks who got banned, shadowbanned, or censored by Twitter are there.
With any social network, what you see in your feed will depend on who your friends are and who you follow.
You can join Gab here.
Real.Video was started by Mike Adams of Natural News in response to mass deplatforming on YouTube.
This is the YouTube alternative to give voices and free speech to those who are being systematically targeted and censored by the larger existing Big Tech sites.
It’s still in the developmental stages, so there’s an occasional glitch but thus far it has been a relatively smooth user experience.
Another budding network is Mastodon, which has the tagline “Giving social media back to you.” It’s a free, open-source network, which means that developers can contribute to it because its design is publicly accessible.
Diaspora is a social network built on three cornerstones: decentralization, freedom, and privacy. To join Diaspora, you must choose a “pod” which is a group of potentially like-minded people. Each pod is independently hosted which should lessen the likelihood of corporate censorship.
You can follow hashtags that interest you, and you can categorize people by how you know them (family, friends, work, etc.) Then you can control who sees the different things that you post.
Diaspora is decentralized which means no one person owns it. This means that it doesn’t have any form of advertisement and corporate interference. It also does not collect any of your data. When you create your account, you are responsible for your own data and retain the ownership of your personal data.
