So i joined Ello today . I know the initial buzz regarding this had died down . But still there are tons of people who are eager to check out the new social media experience . So , what is Ello ? This is what the makers says
Ello is a simple, beautiful, and ad-free social network created by a small group of artists and designers.
We originally built Ello as a private social network. Over time, so many people wanted to join Ello that we built a public version of Ello for everyone to use.
Ello doesn’t sell ads. Nor do we sell data about you to third parties.
Virtually every other social network is run by advertisers. Behind the scenes they employ armies of ad salesmen and data miners to record every move you make. Data about you is then auctioned off to advertisers and data brokers. You’re the product that’s being bought and sold.
Collecting and selling your personal data, reading your posts to your friends, and mapping your social connections for profit is both creepy and unethical. Under the guise of offering a “free” service, users pay a high price in intrusive advertising and lack of privacy.
We also think ads are tacky, that they insult our intelligence and that we’re better without them.
Anyways , for those who are searching frantically over internet for the invite code , i have some good news . I got some invite codes with me and i am willing to share for free . Please leave your email id in the comments , i will send you the codes . Oh don’t worry , i don’t spam .
Alternatively , you can give a try on the ello code generators ( google it ) , but most of them doesnot work .
