10-6-14 A Brand New Social Media Site: Ello

I just read on BOOOOOOOM! there’s a brand new social media site out there. It sounds like it was built for artists and designers, like the artsy version of Facebook. It’s called Ello and it’s in BETA right now. So, of course I had to check it out!

Just like Gmail back in the day, it’s “invite only” at this point, so I emailed to get on the list. I’m not sure where it’ll lead, but the site is supposedly all about keeping your personal information private. And it’s purportedly ad-free.

Sounds good to me! Here’s their logo. Pretty cool, and they encourage you to use it to cover your profile pic on Facebook:

And here’s the Ello Manifesto.

The last line is awesomely futuristic:
“You are not a product.”
What do you think?
