We’re sure you’ve heard by now that there’s a new movement underfoot in this information revolution. Facebook refuses to share certain posts and Google has started ordering website hits based on its own idea of truthfulness, but social media users are starting to find another way to gather together online.
You know all of those times you’ve been frustrated that you signed up to follow the Thinking Moms’ Revolution on Facebook but you’re rarely shown any TMR posts in your feed? Have you noticed that when a post is about something Facebook disagrees with like, oh, vaccines causing autism, that they strangle it to death instead of sharing it? Do you feel too intimidated to take part in the discussion on the TMR page because one psychopath after another is attacking your parenting decisions and Facebook does nothing to ban them? (Facebook won’t ban them, but we can and do ban them from the page, by the way.) Are you worried that your interaction on the TMR page is going to end up in your friends’ feed and you’ll have to hear “you know, that doctor was discredited” for the tenth time this week, so you don’t like or comment our posts? Are you too fed up with the pages devoted to hating your parenting choices to even participate on Facebook?
How is anyone supposed to talk, share information, learn, or form relationships with all of those barriers? Where is the sense of community?
Well, come on over to MeWe. Our arms are wide open. The Thinking Moms’ Revolution MeWe group is almost 1,000 members strong already, and we’re growing every day. The MeWe layout is gorgeous, the features are easy to use, and they even have an app for your phone ready to go. (You’ll have to create a MeWe account for yourself before joining the TMR group.)
On MeWe TMR has 100% reach to all of its members for every post so that we can have a true conversation with our members. Isn’t that what community is all about? And MeWe values your privacy just as much as you do. Unlike Facebook, MeWe isn’t selling your name, personal information, and all of the Internet history on your computer to the highest bidder. They aren’t ever going to ban you for using a name that’s not on your driver’s license. Your MeWe “likes,” “loves,” and comments aren’t broadcast to your whole contact list, so no one is snooping into your social media business. One of the best things about MeWe is their terms of service — and they’re not afraid to enforce them. Bullying, stalking, harassing, and intimidating users are simply not allowed, end of story.
And TMR isn’t alone in this revolution of online gathering. Living Whole has made the move, along with Modern Alternative Mama, Hear This Well, Raising Natural Kids, Motherhood Mafia, Biomedical Treatments and Recovery, Kelly the Kitchen Kop, and even Levi Quackenboss has set up shop.
How many times have you said, “I wish there was a ‘love’ button for this post” on TMR? Your wish has come true. That love button is waiting for you over at MeWe.
