LOS ANGELES, March 13, 2019 — MeWe announces it now exceeds 4 million members as the leading next-gen social network challenging the status quo. MeWe achieved 405% growth in 2018. In 2019 it is already growing twice as fast. MeWe ranked multiple days as the No.1 Trending Social App in the Google Play Store in December 2018.
MeWe is advised by the inventor of the Web, Sir Tim Berners-Lee and its CEO, Mark Weinstein, is a leading privacy advocate and social media pioneer. Berners-Lee said this week, “MeWe has respected privacy . . . The moment there’s a problem with another platform, a million more people join MeWe.”
MeWe’s growth is due to multiple factors, including backlash against privacy violations and widespread censorship from Facebook, Twitter, and other social sites against conservatives, LGBTQ, African Americans, ‘alternative health’ advocates, and others.
On Weinstein’s Medium blog this week he wrote: “At MeWe the idea of political bias, shadow banning, and censorship of Terms of Service-abiding members runs contrary to our core beliefs. MeWe believes that such censorship denies freedom and stunts progress by allowing only one side of a story, making healthy debate impossible. ‘Rightness’ about a position, whether it is related to politics, medicine, health, fitness, spirituality, science, or anything else, has often been reversed or changed over time.”
MeWe members feel safe and protected because its Terms of Service is clear: haters, lawbreakers, bullies, and people inciting threats or violence are not welcome. Members are protected by MeWe’s “Privacy Bill of Rights,” safeguarding member content and data ownership.
MeWe was awarded Start-Up of the Year Finalist at SXSW, and selected one of the Best Entrepreneurial Companies In America. MeWe is “free forever” with a freemium revenue model and enterprise revenue from MeWePRO.
