I recently checked out the MeWe platform as a potential alternative to Facebook and while navigation takes some getting used to, the lack of Ads is something I thought was worth checking out. A few days in and..it’s not bad. I doubt though if checking for fake news or deep fakes is already built in the system, especially if you’re on the free account. More on this later. I like the focus on communities/groups, although the push notifications being set to ON by default was annoying at first. Best to turn it off as well as the email notification prior to joining any group, if you don’t want it sounding off every time someone in the group posts or sends a message. For now, I’m keeping the app in my social media smorgasbord to see its potential.
I read about Liker somewhere as another FB alternative but have yet to get the app. Anyway, I still will have to stay on facebook rather than get all my contacts to join MeWe or Liker, which can take a lot of time if ever the alternatives get any grounding and scale up. Would be nice to finally have some healthy, hopefully better competition for facebook.
Wanna check MeWe out? Here’s my link if you want to connect.
