mods if this isn't allowed just tell me, cuz idktbh

https://www.minds.com/
as facebook , twitter and youtube become more draconian and start to censor people who areof the wrong opinion/ don't allowtheir content to show and the media has begun to attack content creators or anyone they don't like , this site popped up, to allow users to speak their minds probably hence thename, without getting banned

lots of youtubers are coming to this site now andleaving FB and twitter such as bearing, sargon of Akkad, black pigeon speaks
it even has amessenger system, and, what is cool is that it allows you to make a password to use it with your friends, its encrypted

another cool thing, which helps if you are a content creator is the boost system, everyhour you get pointsto use towards it, to boost your channel, or individual posts so it appears in peoples newsfeed

I wonder if it will get up there with twitter and facebook?

do you guys think it will succumb in time to censorship and PC , and biastness as well?

If black pigeon speaks supports it then it's probably pretty shitty.

Sounds pretty shitty too.

It launched in summer, 2015. It's global Alexa website ranking is 12,151st.

Crunchyroll's is 947th

Twitter is 16th.

Facebook's is 3rd.

So I'm going to say no. >.>

Sounds pretty niche to me. I think sites like that are important to have, but I don't think it will ever be mainstream, and I'm not sure I want it to be.

The big problem with new social media sites is that they need some big names to be on there. If I'm jsut retweeting new album releases and concert announcements from my favorite idol group, and they're not on the new site....then I won't go to the new site.

This'll become an increasing problem in years to come. No big Youtubers leave Youtube because the competition sucks. No one leaves reddit because the nearest alternatives implode every time people try to go there.

new social media is an uphill battle and we frequently find the current top dogs are barely making money, if at all, as it is.

Essentially the current batch of Social media sites are going to be maintained by their owners to grow their related side businesses also owned by the same parent company, accepting social media itself will operate at a loss.
