    • It does everything I want to do from Facebook and Twitter and it doesn't censor people. MindMunitionMar 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Open source, transparent and does not push any particular ideology. Guest • Mar 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • It has a good mix of people and a lot of great discussion. grayrookMar 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Plenty o' features for posting videos, writing posts, making groups, & maintaining free speech. Guest • Mar 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Freedom of expression without fear of politically correct backlash from the site owners. FB removes people and groups based on political views. erikwardsMar 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Minds is an open source alternative to Facebook that values freedom of speech above all else. They do not censor post or videos because they disagree with them. Minds has a built in blogging system as well as video uploads. Best of all is Minds ability to use points to buy views for your post, enabling self-advertising on the site! Guest • Mar 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Censorship free, no enforced political ideology beyond the preservation of free speech, promotes intelligent discussion, has absolutely nothing to do with Zuckerberg and, unlike Facebook, you can leave if you want. Guest • Mar 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Minds enables growth of connections to occur quickly if you are highly involved on the site and produce good content, when taking into consideration the quantity of users on the site. Boosting of content and profile/channel views can be achieved (via a points system) and not merely bought. Minds also clearly rewards users with points for using the social media site itself, whether in accessing the site each hour or in uploading rich media content such as graphics or videos, unlike Facebook. Guest • Mar 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • It's one of the better self promotion/likes fishers out there. Compared to having no fucking option to do so in FB outside of promotional pages, and its anti-censorship angle, it's actually pretty good. Phone app needs work. Guest • Mar 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Minds is an open source social media platformed developed by real people for people. End to end encrypted chat for your privacy, and zero censorship. Besides that, MINDS has a great community. Remember, great minds use MINDS! Guest • Mar 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • It's an open and secure platform with an amazing community and great ideas for a safe future. hous3m4sterMar 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • It allows for freedom of expression and is a much better platform for a reasonable debate about politics etc. kevinceeMar 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • It has a thumbs down, which FB users asked for but never got, instead, they got the already existent and simple to do emojis. Minds has so far been a place that I am interested in checking in on because the content is diverse in the way newsfeeds used to be before filtering. I find new content and opinions with each visit to the site and the creator is active in the community, sharing, upvoting, and updating users frequently. BadBlackSheepMar 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Freespeech platform with all the features of Facebook. Has already a lot of interesting people online. No particular political agenda. xbitMar 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • Not just Facebook but Twitter as well. What I see unfolding in front of my very eyes is an evolutionary process still in beta that is already much superior to both of the above. Complex but clean, fast growing yet still user friendly and last but not least, the community feels real. They talk about important things instead of pretending to be celebs. I sense an intellectual depth ib the Minds community. Cheers Minds!! AJ JPS andrew_jjpsApr 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • It is like Facebook Twitter and YouTube have a three-way baby joshuaandersonJul 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • It's where inquisitive & creative minds come to play. Guest • Jul 2017 Disagree   Agree
    • It's social, it has a easy menu, that's easy to use and see for even pc idiots. It's idiot safe, basically. Facebook is the opposite. AlternativeToCheeseApr 2017 Disagree   Agree
  • Diaspora icon

    Diaspora

    Diaspora is a federated social networking service, designed to be a more privacy-aware alternative to Facebook . Share what you want, with whom you want.

    Open Source Linux Web BSD Self-Hosted Ruby

    • So many possibilities are available. Respectful. Nice and clear. Can be self hosted. YrdaelDec 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • Diaspora's key advantage is that it's based on open source software that multiple servers can run. It does not put your private information, your likes, your contacts and your photos in the hands of one corporation who then use it to increase their own private profits by selling your privacy. Diaspora is much smaller though. The UI feels more like Google Plus than Facebook. JohnFastmanDec 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • Similar appearance and functionality, easy to use, free software, decentralized, doesn't collect nor sell your personal info. riveravaldezNov 2016 Disagree   Agree
    • Decentralized, free as in freedom, no censorship, no push of particular agenda Guest • Jul 2017 Disagree   Agree
