Have you ever heard of MeWe?
During the post-election time, a significant force in the nation is now moving to social media alternative Parler, which now faces its first-ever competitor and rival, MeWe Social Networking. Thanks to its “unbiased” and conservative attributes that shift away from Facebook and Twitter, the social networking alternatives are increasing in popularity.
Social networking is a necessity in today’s age since it is the easiest way to communicate with the environment and culture. This is the key focus of social networking, apart from highlighting an individual’s passions, activities, and accomplishments.
The Rise of Post-Election Social Media Switch
In the electoral crossfires, Facebook and Twitter were trapped. The news was required to be filtered and moderated by all social networking platforms, which became a fertile ground for disinformation and conspiracy theories spread by different individuals.
People thought that the independence that once was the backbone of social networking firms, Facebook and Twitter, was missing because of the filtering and filtration of the messages that show on the News Feeds. This culminated in the move to social networking firms , especially the alternatives of growing popularity that started with Parler.
Today, in the social networking environment named MeWe, Parler faces stiff rivalry with a lesser-known brand. The latter social networking platform is the second most freely downloaded application on Apple’s App Store Top Charts, which illustrates that individuals turn to modern alternatives without strict moderation.
Founder Dubs Himself as Inventor of Social Media
MeWe is a recent program rising in success in the country’s App Store Top Charts, according to Mashable, falling behind the now-massive alternative, Parler. In order to line up with Facebook and Twitter, social networking considers itself the “next-gen social network”.
MeWe reflects on itself as a network that gives consumers data protection and an ad-free experience to enjoy. The social network Top Two is operated and managed by the firm, Sgrouples, which is the initial name of the program. In 2011 and MeWe in 2012 by a lesser-known internet billionaire and developer, Mark Weinstein established the business.
In an interview with Rolling Stone magazine in 2019, Weinstein even called himself the “father of social media.” The explanation for this is Weinstein’s popularity, who concentrated on social networking networks, one of the oldest in the world, during the late 1990s. The ‘SuperGroups’ social networking forum was subsequently taken down in 2001.
What is on this social media platform?
There is currently a flood in unauthorized identities circulated on the social networking website, which involves news organizations and recognised public figures. Even Donald Trump, the former President of the United States (POTUS), has an unauthorized account.
According to Rolling Stone, MeWe claims to have no limits, and it delivers on that pledge. The “unchained” forum became popular on Facebook and Twitter for fostering conspiracy theories, anti-vaxxers, and other entities refused access and speech.
With its hashtag “# Not4Sale,” the website provides a network where people can openly express themselves, increasing in success last year. Now, as the post-election cycle forces individuals to resort to alternatives, like Parler ‘s top app, MeWe faces tremendous popularity.
