I would appreciate it and hope in the future, there is a more useful full online platform than these days.

  2. Thakorn Opatanathakorn (6307640471)

    To be honest, i’ve never heard of these platforms before. However, they seem really interesting and beneficial in terms of exploring new aspects through virtual platforms. I’m quite interested in ELLO, it looks like a safety place in the virtual world, differ from Facebook, which there are plenty of scandals of them invading and exposing users’ privacy without consent. Nowadays, people are so invested in social media platforms, hence along side with seeking for fun, beware of one’s privacy and check the reliability of the platform is essential.

  3. That’s interesting! I’ve never heard about these new platforms maybe because it’s new. Some platform is very interesting it’s like the convert of many applications. The most important some look like to keep my privacy more than the other famous platforms.

  4. Pat Rachatasakorn

    Wow, I never know one of those platforms before. Those platforms are really great; I mostly like ELLO because this platform doesn’t have an advertisements, and also have zero security danger. It’s totally better than Facebook that always invade our privacy. Unfortunately that those platforms are not popular in some countries including Thailand.

  5. Wow, this is so beneficial. Nowadays, Facebook and many application is insecured by sharing our privacy. These new alternative will make you safe. This is so interesting, guy. Mewe and Ello look like Facebook, but it do not have any ads, this so amazing. Those app above will say to mark that “Zuckerberg, Beware!”

    there are many choices or decisions to make nowadays and it enjoyable to use the platform that we can specify the topics that we want to share or find out the others that like the same thing.

    Very interesting new social media platforms this year. Sometimes I am really concern about my privacy on social media as sometimes the ads pops up when I said something without searching anything on my phone. I also see people get exposed on twitter with their real identity when their identity actually is anonymous on twitter. I wonder why that happened. I want to discover more about the application ‘Mewe’ as it is exactly what I’m looking for on social media when I get fed up with ads and question about my privacy security. The application like ‘Ello’ and ‘Eyeem’ are also interesting since I usually use pinterest to search for pictures. I might try these apps, so I may have larger platforms to look up for artworks. I already had an account on ‘minds’, but I got no connections on that application as none of my friends use it. Sometimes, some interesting social media platoforms become useless when people don’t use them ;(

    1. Saruda Trongtrairat

      It was really interesting. I never knew these platforms before. I think these platforms were good as some of popular platforms like Facebook and etc. Which I think that these platforms are good and suitable for many people to use. So if I had a chance, I’d like to try one of these.

  8. Kullanit Yonjaitan

    So cool! These platforms are really new to me! I’ve never heard about any of them before. I love how most of their options are trying to keep the customers privacy by not gathering data from customers and not showing them ads which has been improved from what Facebook can do. Moreover, the EYEEM is quite interesting. I think it’s very useful for people creating art works such as picture takers who don’t know how to show their work’s. Maybe, some of them looking for a job may get it from this platform one day and I’m hopefully looking forward for people to give precedence to the art works much more than now.

  9. Patcharatorn Ekaunnop

    I use many platforms in my daily life but I never knew or heard about the previous platforms before. Some platforms are more effectively than others such as Facebook. If individuals know the ‘ELLO’, I think everyone will use this platform instead of Facebook because there are no advertisements and also have zero security dangers.

  10. I learned a lot of new things from this article! Today, I learn about in the world there are so so many social media that is useful and talented but some people don’t know we had alternative social media platforms. For me, I never use all of these platforms but in the future, I’ll use EYEEM because I think it has benefits such as we can work with other people and also make occasions! Thinking about the moment that I try this app, very awesome!!

  11. Thank you for your information, i’m the one who do love taking photos but ain’t pro! EyeEm is a cool and interesting platform for me. I’ll try it soon!

  12. Pitchaya Jenjirawong

    Some of the names in the list are the one that I have not heard before. I used EyeEm for quite a while, it is great, people can make money off it and the UI is also quite clean. However, it is still not popular. I think it is difficult for these alternatives to be on the same level as those big social media platforms becuase people commonly resist change.

  13. Nice content! I have never heard of these platforms before. I think I would try MeWe since it’s ads-free and my privacy will be protected. I don’t like it when social media platforms trying to persuade me to buy unnecessary things and I value privacy a lot. Also, Ello sounds promising to me because you can work with a lot of people without having to provide too much information about yourself. However, these platforms are still used by small number of people compared to the mainstream ones. I hope they will get more recognition.


    These are such new media platforms that amused me. Some are really creative and interesting and really should be downloaded to replaced whatsapp according to the previous article you wrote “should i delete whatsapp.” Ello is really fascinating to me since it gives me an aesthetic vibe and as stated it turned out to be like Pinterest, and I really love using Pinterest since it contains lot’s of beautiful posts. It also looks like a safe zone since no personal information is needed and that there are no adds which also means no cookies. It can also provide work for people to team up if i understand it correctly hahaha. Just couldn’t wait to try some of these stuffs.

    These are significant alternative social media platforms, it can suit the need of users such as no advertisement, security, and so on. Moreover, These social media platforms can help entrepreneurs wider their market. However, all these platforms are not popular in many countries, if they can gain more reputation, it will be beneficial for users to use their platform ability.

  16. Raksima Chandrakulsiri

    So interesting! I didn’t know there are so many new social platforms available. All of them are concerned of privacy of the user which i think is very good. Since nowadays, all the giant platforms invade our personal information without telling us. I really glad that there are alternatives platforms of us users to get to know and use them in the future to protect our own privacy

  17. I just found out that there are so many interesting platforms. Although concepts of the platforms look similar to some famous platforms, they’re still interesting because actually these alternative platforms have some unique functions like MINDS that I will get a token for each post and MEWE that I can completely control my feeds no ads

  18. These are great!! I would like to try them..I like the one without the ads because they are annoying. Anyway, I think these social media once can be popular with connections, informations, and influencers.

All of those are so interesting and really are a good choices to try. I appreciate the one that can protect the privacy information of the user so, I don’t have to concern about my privacy so using the app would be very comfortable.

  22. Siradar Ounnasiri

    These are really beneficial, since I never know about these new media platform. They are new for me and it sounds so secure, because there are no ads and no spyware which are really safe for people privacy. These are really new good choice for people in this digital age to use to prevent them from danger via social media.

  23. These applications are very benefit for the user because sometime application is not private enough for example security, advertisement, hacker. So, these apps are the answer for who looking for privacy. Also, these apps do not have advertisement in the applications. If I have chance to use some of these apps, it might be good to try a new things.

  24. Cool!!!! I have never known about these applications before. I’ll try those to decrease ads as it makes me bored when scrolling for the interesting information. Also, I glad that they protect the users’ private information.

  25. This article is very useful. I never know about all of those platform before. In the present time, we can try new platform which were more secure than the current application. In addition, Mewe and Ello look like Facebook, but did not have advertisement. I think it’s very amazing and interesting.

  26. I feel like people are overly attached to the idea that in order to sign up for a social media, they need to be use it with people whom they were already friends with. Signing up to a new social media can be a great way to meet and talk to interesting people – not to mention that these new apps are more privacy concerned compared to the big names in the market.

I hope they will get more recognition from people. Good explanation and give clear understanding. Thank you.

  34. Onwadee Phasero

    In my opinion, this is a new, interesting and exciting social media platform for me to know more about these platforms.

  35. Nowadays , many platforms are built. Most people are stuck with old platforms and are not interested in learning new things but these six platforms in the article are very interesting and useful. Some platforms are worth using these days because they don’t have ads but have privacy and no danger as well.

  36. Nabhopp Chiravadhanookul

    How have I not seen any of these before?!?
    All of these apps have such creative features but the one that really caught my attention was “Minds.” I think the token system is a fantastic idea, it kinda reminds me of games I used to play as a child where we complete tasks and get tokens which we can exchange for other in-game items and buffs. The function appeals to basic human psychological needs.

    Btw I love that you put the two apps with no ads first on the list. Advertisements are so annoying 😛
