New Social Media Platform Dubbed ''The People’s Site'' by Anonymous

Post by Your Mom on Sat Jun 20, 2015 1:23 pm


Facebook may have finally met its match. By directly targeting the social media behemoth’s lack of messaging encryption, infamously opaque algorithms, and government and advertiser accessibility, Minds.com has earned the attention of privacy advocates, activists, and frustrated Facebook users—and has even garnered active support from Anonymous. By employing many similar features found on Facebook and other social media giants, Minds gives its users a familiar platform without the numerous privacy concerns plaguing the long-established sites.

Users will find the typical status updates, comments, and link-sharing as other social media, but Minds takes the government’s eyes out of the equation by encrypting private messages and using open-source code that any programmer can check. The platform uses a “reward’ system based on points to earn “views” for posts, so the more active you are, the more the network will promote your posts—-without hindrance from advertisers and profit models.

“For every mobile vote, comment, remind, swipe & upload you earn points which can be exchanged for views on posts of your choice. It’s a new web paradigm that gives everyone a voice,” explains the website.

I´m not sure this will fly much.
People who are shallow enough to have a use for the exhibitionist circle-jerk known as facebuk obviously don´t give a fuck about their privacy and vice versa.

I know I wouldn´t even if it was run by Eddie Snowden himself...

it's natural to be cynical, but there do exist people who do not sway in the breeze of cash offers. I'd like to think I'm one of these. I'm as poor as a church mouse, but (big laugh) if this site ever took off, I couldn't sell it for anything or allow outside interference because money just doesn't motivate me.

Fuck, I wouldn't especially if it was Snowden! Me no trust

That's true. I'm just in a cynical mood today. And most days lately.

Something about social media just bothers me. I don't think you get the benefits of real human interaction, and it tends to lead to narcissism. Guess it depends how you use it though.

Cynical is ok; I'm beyond cynicism; I hate these social media and the airheads that use them with a passion bordering on pathological.

Thats the problem I think. The technology is always neutral, it depends on the users what they make of it and sadly, most people seem to be content with liking each others lunches or other general asshattery.

It's just not for me. I'm blunt and I could care less about most people. I hate small talk, shallow conversation, niceties, and pretending to care about strangers. I stick to my close circle of friends and like it that way. Get off my cyber-lawn.

The technology may be neutral, but it's those that have behind the scenes access to it and their motives that worry me.
