Alternatives To Twitter And Facebook

social media

Please note that I do, did, or have, participate or participated, in the Amazon llc affiliate program which means I earn money for promoting products listed on their site. When people click the ads and make purchases, I get paid a cut. Thank you! I recently decided to drop propellerads on this site anyway to prevent the annoying spam like ads from turning users away. I feel it will damage my reputation here at Grey Hat Laboratories. This site is now supported via my ETSY which can be navigated to via the url !


Tumblr;   Diaspora

Wireclub   Aim Phoenix  MeWe  Vero  Clouthub  Gab


It's different. I like the color theme and the feel. I've seen some really cool post come through. I think the general nature of the content is higher in quality than on Facebook. Tumblr is the type of social media I think that rewards participation. It makes sense for people to browse other peoples social media pages as much as they theirself post. After all, if all everyone ever does is post and no one reads then all we have is an epic and un-necessary exchange of data, which is cache, which is cash monies. BTW, follow Grey Hat Laboratories Tumblr Page Here!


MeWe is the best. You can post the same thing over in over in as many groups as you wish. The users are tolerant to free speech but intolerant to nazi hate speech, the owners seem legit, and it is very populated.


Very doesn't provide much traffic and is harder to get users ( requires way more engagement ). It isn't my top, but I like it because it is like instagram. I link to it from every one of my websites so it gets exposure. It's a good thing to use in that sense, but not the best for daily active social media recreation or for creators who want easy to get followers. The app also seems to be very heavy on system resources.


The app seems to be on the heavier end for using system resources imo. It has many reputable news agencies there. The groups tend to be centered to the right... and maga crowd, so if you want to un-brainwash them, then go there and preach to them like I do. There seems to be oppression of certain topics on Clouthub and Gab imo. Social media hasn't been the same sense the socialist attacked in 2016.

I don't like instagram, they deleted my account after I shared a kratom petition to keep it legal. It woulnd't even let me share the url they had it blocked. So I added a space in there, to trip up the system, as in I put a space in between where the . would go in the url, www . site . com, and it booted me out of my account and it was deactivated immediately. For? Being an American civilian who participated in their own democracy. So alt tech is the way to go. Gab is not perfect but better than most, and MeWe. Mewe and Gab are the top right now it looks like, for free speech and exposure. Mewe doesn't stop you from posting the same thing over an over again. Gab lets you paste and post the same thing 3 times then you gotta change it up.


Diaspora was coded by an Irish lad who wanted to let social media be free and not controlled by coorporate interest. It's laid back and legit. There is no "Diaspolice", if you know what I mean. Enjoy the service and please don't abuse it. There are a number of different "pods" you can choose from when you create your account. Introduce yourself with the #newhere hashtag. Choose your colot theme. It's old school.


Wireclub is awesome.. The chat rooms are actually inhabited and used by real live human beings like Aol Instant Messenger was back in the 90's! There are tons to choose from, and it also has games ( not into that myself ), a feed like other platforms. So you have that, you have a blog, chat rooms, and all sorts of other cool features and uniqueness. I give these guys credit because in my opinion, they are very talented developers. There's a differencec between developers, and talented ones too. Hats off Wireclub engineers! A job well done, I say!

Aim Phoenix

After AOL dropped Aol Instant Messenger towards the end of 2017, a lot of people died inside. Fortunately, a skilled programmer built, on the work of other coders, a project called "Aim Phoenix". The genious created a Server that would allow people to connect to it, and chat through AIM just like before, and using the same software clients that were around in the 1990s! What made this possible, was the fact that the AOL employees who developed AIM[without the consent or direction of AOL mind you], created the application to allow the user to change the server name and port for the actual login server. So you go in and change it to, and click apply. Check out the Pheonix project @ http --> (#_#)

You can use Pidgin with Phoenix as well, but Pidgin users be ware.. By default, all instant messages are stored on the local drive in plain text [ ASCII ].. So even if you unheck that in your settings, anyone you chat with could be running that default setting, and storing everything you type to their hard drive. Just keep things in mind when using computers. Mainly, remember that there really is no such thing as privacy, so don't act a fool or feel like because you're behind a computer screen that everything's secret.

I'm not going to talk bad about any specific one. I want to also suggest Google Scholar.

You came here for alternatives and that's simply what I am offering you. With either one of these platforms, you will not be forced or ever asked to upload your drivers-license, passport, or your actual real name. There is no "billing department" with Diaspora, and i'm not sure about Tumblr on that one. I don't have internet access on the laptop that i'm writing this blog on, and my phone is dead on the charger. Otherwise, Google it.

For similar reasons that I offer these alternatives, I also have a link directory at I try to avoid listing any known major coorporation urls with a few exceptions at most. It's an engine for skilled webmasters, amateur journalist, and anyone who's been oppressed on the web by big corporate interest and favortism, the peoples internet, that which has been targeted, black-hat seo attacked, pushed off the first page by socialist interest, etc. It's for the small guys and gals, the markters who've had their affiliate income chipped away at, or just skilled amateur journalist and bloggers, whistle blowers, activist, preahers, etc. Come join me, and we will re-develope search engine visibility, and we'll do it in a way that's fair. Also make use of Google scholar! NEVER DISCARD A URL! Even if a website goes offline, or a link stops working ( goes dead ), you can still pull it up on the way back machine ( the internet archives ). This means even if your domain gets sold, it will always be online in the archives. That url is: or aka "internet archives"
