It is Time for a Facebook Alternative

It is Time for a Facebook Alternative

Facebook has been the main player in the social media world since since most of us have been on the internet. It provides a good way to share what has been happening to friends and family, but is it the best option? I believe that it is not.

Facebook

Pros

  • A lot of people are already using it
  • ???

Cons

Alternatives (I am starting with one, but more may be added later)

Faithlife -a faith based alternative to FaceBook

Pros

  • Built specifically for believers in Jesus
  • Connected to their Bible software
  • Instead of “liking” someone’s post, there are other options as well like “Praying” and “Praise the Lord”
  • It is built around groups.
    • It is easy to see posts just from certain groups instead of always at everyone’s posts
    • Easy for churches or other organizations to send out notifications
  • There are many options for when and how to be notified of a change or update to a certain group.
    • Receive notifications (in one of their apps or programs)
    • Get an email weekly, daily, instantly or not at all
    • Notifications settings can be customized per group
  • No ads

Cons

  • Not many people are using it yet
  • ??? (ok, this is a short list šŸ™‚ )
