Several philosophers over the past week have announced intentions to migrate some of their social media activity from Facebook to MeWe, owing to dissatisfaction with aspects of Facebook, such as privacy and advertising.
In terms of format and functionality, MeWe is fairly similar to Facebook, but it is ad-free and “keeps your information free from tracking, spying, and scraping.”
I’m not sure whether enough people, for enough time, will give MeWe a go, but if you are interested in trying it you can now follow Daily Nous on it.
I just set up the page—check it out—and at this very moment it has three followers.
Oh wait—now there are four. Just around 17,000 more to go until DN’s MeWe page catches up with its Facebook page. See you there!
