Patently Apple supports the 'MeWe' Social Media Network, an alternative to Facebook, on track for 800% growth in 2019
Earlier this year, Patently Apple introduced the social media network "MeWe" to our navigation bar to provide our fans with an alternative to Facebook. An alternative for those fed-up with Facebook's losing and selling user data and more. It's been a successful addition to our site.
Earlier this week David Westreich PR and Social Media Manager at MeWe Network contacted us to say thanks for adding MeWe to Patently Apple and to tell us about their new announcement that they made in a press release this week, as presented below.
"MeWe announces it surpasses 6 million members and is named a 2019 'Best Entrepreneurial Company in America' by Entrepreneur magazine. Recently MeWe has ranked as a 'Top 10' Social App and the #1 Trending Social App in the Google Play Store.
MeWe expects over 100 million members by the end of 2020, having achieved 405% growth in 2018 and growing twice as fast on a daily basis in 2019. 60% of MeWe's traffic is international and 35% of members are active—exceeding industry standards.
In his recent Wall Street Journal op-ed, MeWe's CEO, Mark Weinstein, wrote, "MeWe is a full-featured social network engineered with privacy-by-design that's freemium-based with no ads, targeting or newsfeed manipulation.
Marketers and election meddlers cannot target or boost anything to anyone. These are significant competitive differentiations." Weinstein added that "It's gratifying to see MeWe flourishing worldwide. MeWe is the uplifting social network with the features people love, and the respect, control and data privacy we all deserve."
Weinstein recently discussed MeWe's ascension as the next-gen social network during his August 28 Fox Business interview and his July 25 CNN International interview.
MeWe's advisory board includes Sir Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the Web, who says, "MeWe gives the power of the Internet back to the people with a platform built for collaboration and privacy."
MeWe's groundbreaking "Privacy Bill of Rights" guarantees members have control of their data, newsfeeds and privacy. MeWe safeguards members with a strong Terms of Service designed to keep bad actors out.
Patently Apple is pleased to be a part of this new social media network with principles.
