Comments about Minds as a Alternative to Facebook
Great ethics and policies. All software should be open source. People get paid to make content and it's scaled1
It's a great social network! I experience more user-engagement here than on Facebook, and posts from people you're subscribed to shows in chronological order. That means you won't miss a single post if you take your time to scroll through your newsfeed! Minds is still evolving, and It's a joy to behold.4
they charge money to see posts that were posted by premium members.. they have none of the features that Facebook has.. literally the only thing it has at this point in time, is a main feed wall to share posts, that's it.-1
It's made by people for people ;)0
I just started there today - but facebook make to mucht against the free speak, so I hope Minds.com will be a good place-1

Not just an advanced messaging service, Downloads can be put into folders (Pictures etc). also a music upload/download player and marketplace.3
An excellent local counterpart.-1
Because it has tiny bit more respect to privacy than FaceBook.-5
VK might be a tad bit more private than Facebook, but the biggest benefit is being able to download files and see profiles/posts without an account.-1
It's similar to the old Facebook, which means it's simpler and without advertisements. Unfortunately, not very popular in Western Europe.0

Used to be called Sgrouples, now its MeWe offered by the company Sgrouples Inc. On its homepage their motto is "The World's Private Communication Network" and "Join the privacy revolution".
Comments about MeWe as a Alternative to Facebook
No ads, better privacy, better features.2
Better alternative, it's worth it :)3
Matches Facebook technologically as a platform, but the loudest voices in the community are conspiracy theories, antiscience, and MAGA types -- the platform actually promotes these people as "You should follow". Example: When you search "news", you only get "alternative news", not y'know NEWS. The platform need to attract and promote truthful content to counteract all the "alternative facts".1
MeWe looks and feels very similar and has some of the same features like facebook with Pages,Groups & Personal Profiles that look more like a facebook profile then some of the other alternatives It also respects peoples privacy and is also ad free and they also support Free Speech to an extent.1
You can forget about Facebook. Mewe does it all.2
