I hope I’m not being redundant by creating this thread, if so, I kindly ask the moderators to archive the thread right away.
I’ve been reading about alternatives to Facebook (again) lately, and have naturally been scouring the Humane Tech Community forums for thoughts and inspiration. My impression has been that there are currently two main humane alternatives to Facebook: Okuna (previously known as Openbook) and MeWe.
From what I’ve understood both have their respective merits, but as I’m finally thinking of making the switch away from Facebook, I was hoping somebody with experience on either or both of the social networks could offer a comparison of the two. When I do switch, I would like to get my friends and colleagues on board, of course. For that case, its best if I can simply offer them one solution that we can stick with, to avoid the chaos of everyone having four messaging apps that happened after the WhatsApp sale to Facebook several years ago.
Specifically, I’m wondering which of the two networks has the more humane design and privacy options, which one has the better ‘outlook’ for the future, so to speak, and what the user base of each mostly consists of. I know I must be forgetting many relevant points, but these came to my mind while searching.
Thank you for your time in advance.
