Gab Social is an open source and fully decentralized social network powered by the Gab Platform. It is the new social network of Gab.com. This change was made to further Gab's commitment to its users trust and privacy online. And, by offering decentralization and federation, Gab further demonstrates a lack of interest in the ownership of user data. The Gab Social project is based on the Mastodon project, and is licensed under the terms and conditions of AGPL-3.0.
Gab has been widely described as a haven for extremists who have been banned from other social networks.
- Free. No commercials. No shadow banning or censorship of Views.
- GAB does not censor free speech, but instead allows users to mute users/ content themselves. Superior to corporate censorship.
- No corporate censorship. As Big Tech®™? censors and deplatforms more users for the tiniest of infractions, Gab will grow. It has its issues (UI needs improvement, needs a “media” tab like Twitter has). I’ve had my account for two years. Not a single lockout, suspension, or forced deletion of my posts. I’m done with Twitter.
