Has anyone heard of this new social media network?

It's more privacy focused than Facebook, feels like twitter, and is already gaining some traction. I'm quite tempted to sign up myself..

Just thought I’d mention that Parler is now all over the news.. for the wrong reasons.

Google have removed it from their Play store and Amazon have now removed it from their hosting service.. which means it could disappear. Apple have also removed it from their App Store.

I’m assuming they will find hosting somewhere. I find it weird that a service promoting free speech wasn’t actually hosted on their own private servers! I guess something like this was bound to happen if nothing on there was checked.

It may not sell your data but I would not trust my data with the type of people that have created the platform. It will be interesting to see how long it takes them to move over to their own servers

Well I can see the problem was the platform was based on that, free speech. Free speech is a United States amendment right but it's another thing to make a site sole based on that and could lead to hate speech.

I've removed the "share" option with Parler for now.. Not that the platform is back up and running yet anyway.

The more I've read and heard about the people involved with and who are largely present on the platform, the less comfortable I feel about it.. It sounds like a school where all of the expelled students get sent to.

I'm on Parler.

That being said I'm not the type of person that the media has said uses Parler except that I'm Conservative. I am not part of some uprising or an instigator. I think that maybe people need to see for themselves what the platform is about instead of trusting what the media says.

I'm not going to join the platform but I've seen enough of the content to know that the platform isn't a great one. Of course, every platform has bad apples but when a platform doesn't do anything about it and sort of encourages the crap that is posted there, it's not a good look

I've seen for myself and it is still a no from me 😂
