MeWe:  A Safer Alternative for Social Media

This social media alternative cuts the clutter, don’t track your every move and keeps your personal data your’s and your’s alone.

Sure, even your grandmother may be on Facebook these days, but those in the know understand that social networks are tracking our every move. From purchases to cookies to data sharing to outright spying, social media poses a threat some of us aren’t comfortable with. MeWe is a new communication network that’s turning the tables on social media services like FaceBook because of its safe sharing. There are no ads, no tracking, and your privacy is always respected. Best of all, it’s free!

What’s wrong with Facebook?

If you’re like the average American you’re probably monitored by half a dozen companies from the moment you wake up to the moment you go to sleep (and if you wear a sleep tracker, it doesn’t stop even when you’re getting some shuteye.)  Facebook share buttons and comments, tie directly into the company’s servers to provide their own features. It’s a give-and-take relationship: the price you pay for being able to interact with Facebook even without going to their website is that they can see all of the other websites you’ve visited, and they’re following you around the internet and using that information to better target ads and content to you when you visit your FB account.

How can MeWe help?

Built by the company Sgrouples Inc., MeWe is a mobile and desktop innovation for one-on-one and group communication. It’s a safe, private platform that allows you to freely communicate online in the same manner that you do offline: with people you actually know and like. With new state-of-the-art features such as an innovative mobile chat app, disappearing content, voice messaging, group controls, photo tags, albums, cloud storage, private mail and customizable news feeds, MeWe has more features than Facebook but is also a fun and safe way to share and connect.

Who is MeWe for?

According to a January 2016 Pew Research Report, millennials are the demographic most concerned about their online privacy and not being monetized. They’ve grown up entirely online and they’re a bit more savvy about what social media is taking from them. MeWe turns the table on Facebook with a revolutionary integrated social network and chat app that emphasizes social sharing with privacy-by-design (something the company calls “PbD”). It’s the only social network with a Privacy Bill Of Rights for its members.

MeWe is the brainchild of social media tech entrepreneur and leading privacy advocate Mark Weinstein—a visionary social networking pioneer and award-winning author of the Habitually Great book seriesThe MeWe platform comes with the full backing and support of major technology innovators such as Sir Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the World Wide Web and a key member of the MeWe Advisory board.
