Rumble
Rumble Link

Rumble, our flagship brand provides video creators a way host, manage, distribute, create OTT feeds and monetize their content. One of the things Rumble does best, is providing audiences that will generate revenue for video creators.



Friendica
Friendica Link

Friendica is more Facebook-style than Mastodon, and has no central authority or ownership.



Mastodon
Mastodon Link

You join an interest-based server to get started, at which point you can follow and communicate with people on other servers. Mastodon pitches itself as “a federation—think Star Trek” and lays it all out in a nice, straightforward feed.



EyeEm
EyeEm Link

Photographers network... If you like the photo-sharing aspects of Facebook, EyeEm may be right up your alley. Founded in 2011, this platform has evolved quite a bit since its infancy. It started out as a mobile-only app where users could upload and share iPhone photos. Today, it’s a digital space that caters to both photographers and businesses.



Yubo
Yubo Link

The platform is aimed at users between the ages of 13 to 25. To protect younger users, Yubo separates members into two communities. Those over the age of 18 cannot interact with younger users and vice versa.



Sociall
Sociall Link

Sociall is a decentralized platform, so it’s not owned by a single entity. The platform takes things a step further by implementing blockchain technology, too. There’s no single place where your post information is stored. This makes it harder for hackers to access and corrupt the data. It makes Sociall even more secure.



Ello
Ello Link

Ello launched back in 2014 with quite a stir in the US as it was about the time when Facebook changed its policy on names of its members, where they had to use their proper legal name. Its popularity grew as Ello presented itself to the world as a “Facebook killer social network” which doesn’t push ads down its users’ throats and doesn’t sell peoples’ information and data to 3rd parties.



Vero
Vero Link

Artists network... Vero is a subscription based social network. It shows no ads and doesn’t collect data. It’s a totally different model to Facebook in the sense that Facebook needs user data in order to make money from them. Vero does collect some usage data which is used to see how often the app is used, but note that this option by default is off. Unlike Facebook where they have everything turned on and you have to go into your settings and turn them off.



Raftr
Raftr Link

Raftr calls itself a “civilized social network.” It launched in 2017 by Sue Decker, a former Yahoo executive. Here vision for the platform is to create a place where conversations and unfolding stories are the pure focus. Its a place where you can connect to the communities who share the same or similar interests that you have.



Diaspora
Diaspora Link

Diaspora is also in the mix when it comes to Facebook alternatives. Diaspora is a decentralized social network that is nonprofit and runs on free Diaspora software. The software is in the form of a free personal web server.

The social media titles listed to the left were added for your use. The links can be followed to learn whether one or more networks work for you. You can use it to sign up too. We hope that you found this helpful.

If you know of any other alternatives to Facebook, Twitter and Instagram, please let us know.
