A surprising email came into my inbox today – I was invited to join Ello. After several weeks of waiting to try out the entirely new social network, I finally could get my hands on what it claimed to be the next generation, simple, beautiful & ad-free social network.
Without much hesitation, I signed up for it and got myself an instant account. Like other social media networks (e.g. Twitter, FaceBook), I could add friends. Ello made it really simple for me by displaying some of their favourite (recommended) profiles to add (see screenshot below).
This is the first time using Ello, so I am still trying to figure out how to best make use of this social network for my daily stuff. Nonetheless, the 2 best things that come along with it are: 1) no ad, and 2) privacy, by not selling personal data to third parties. Anyway, the bottom line is, with an account, I can invite up to 10 people – so if you are interested, please feel free to contact me.
