Facebook Alternatives 2020 – Social Networks That Won’t Sell Your Data

Facebook Ello Mastodon Steemit Diaspora Minds
  1. Connect with friends, family and other people you know. Share photos and videos, send messages and get updates.
    What about Ello or Diaspora? I have been getting kicked completely out of Facebook and I have had to delete my app several times. And I know that I have let my friends on Facebook know that I was looking for something outside of Facebook. My Aunt as well as a few others are looking too. But I told them as soon as I find something I would let them know. I don’t think I should be discriminated against for being conservative and this to is happening on Facebook as well.

    NOTE: Ello has been discontinued.
    Welcome to the Creators Network. Ello is a community to discover, discuss, publish, share and promote the things you are passionate about.
    Ello launched back in 2014 with quite a stir in the US as it was about the time when Facebook changed its policy on names of its members, where they had to use their proper legal name. Its popularity grew as Ello presented itself to the world as a “Facebook killer social network” which doesn’t push ads down its users’ throats and doesn’t sell peoples’ information and data to 3rd parties.

  3. Vero is a social network for anyone who loves anything enough to share it – and wants control over...
    Vero is a subscription based social network. It shows no ads and doesn’t collect data. It’s a totally different model to Facebook in the sense that Facebook needs user data in order to make money from them. Vero does collect some usage data which is used to see how often the app is used, but note that this option by default is off. Unlike Facebook where they have everything turned on and you have to go into your settings and turn them off.

  4. Mastodon is a decentralized, open source social network. This is just one part of the network, run by the main developers of the project It is not focused on any particular niche interest - everyone is welcome!
    Mastodon launched in 2017 and made quite an impact on the social network scene. Mastodon is a free, open-source social network. When it launched it was presented as an open source Twitter competitor, but as people are leaving Facebook its being used the same way you would Facebook, which makes it a really good alternative to Facebook.

  5. Steemit is a social media platform where everyone gets paid for creating and curating content. It leverages a robust digital points system (Steem) for digital rewards.
    The platform is a community-owned social networking platform that rewards its users for their activity online, similar to the Steemit platform. They do this with paying users in crypto and providing users with more views on their posted content. Minds will monitor each users daily contribution and relative to the community. The amount a user gets will be determined by their percentage across the network which then determines their share of the Daily Reward Pool of tokens.

    The open-source, encrypted social network that expands your reach for using it.
    The hardest part about making a change to a different platform is persuading your friends to follow. I’ve tried this several times with Minds, Mewe, et al. I get maybe 5 friends to make the change. Most are afraid their friends won’t follow them and their friends and their friends, etc. FB has been largely successful as the first platform of its type because once people are there few will try others for this reason. Social media is useless with the “social” part. Sure you can make new friends but most of us have invested greatly in the ones we have.
