A BIG Congratulations to everyone helping us to find New Alternative Social Network and Group Web Sites that are not commercialized and intrusive (i.g. facebook, google+, others).
We're finding LOTS OF ALTERNATIVES where we can feel safe, be more productive and focussed on what really matters to us; and not be burdened or distracted by all the charming stuff the for profit & control concerns online want us to be, for their benefit, not ours.
We started with a list of 49 Alternatives to Facebook and established our first "primary' anchor site on LifeKnot.com - as our first stop to freedom & privacy our way.
Then as time passed, we came across the most awesome, ad free, secure site called Unseen.is - located in Iceland.
Unseen.is is made for people and groups who wish to connect in a non-intrusive, non-commercial environment with secure email and voice, text, video chat and file
sharing and group building.
Unseen has apps, and currently requires most browsers
to be near up to date, and there are some Tor issues (may
have to do with common use of Firefox 27.0+ versions) but it works well, once you have it together.
And take heart, our techs have been working with their techs to hammer out making sure 'technology' on the cutting edge, does not cause us all to drop off or stop using Unseen.
So, the future looks bright if they listen to us, otherwise we'll go find other secure spots that don't change every 90 days.... like the ones we're all trying to escape from, in the first place.
We and our peers are there on Unseen.is (and many folks on the same paths as we are from around the globe and San Francisco already), in addition to LifeKnot.com
UNSEEN.IS's MORE PUBLIC TWIN SISTER SITE: SEEN.IS
Seen.is is Unseen's Sister site that is made for more private, but outwardly public presence and social networking online, with ability to set up groups, forums, chat areas and even Classified ads in a no-ads or personal data collecting environment.
Both are ideal for anyone who wants to be free of burdens, privacy intrusions and
data collection activities on for profit web sites that even have government defense
contracts and resell data to foreign security forces and intelligence and job screening concerns around the world.
