What is this and why is it suddenly everywhere? Someone invite me, I'm seriously fomoing over here.
Seriously baffled by anyone getting excited about a new social media thingy.
on the going-to-shit axis
Especially since I now get Starbucks adverts on my Instagram feed.
Which will inevitably become too big to hold off the urge to make money and will become and ad-based social network like all the others. Oh and you can 'opt-out' of giving them any privacy info. It's a bit zeitgeisty.
Seems achingly cool, probably won't ever login again but get to be a relatively early adopter and build my personal brand if it really takes off. Great stuff.
Sign me up!
You have to cover that cost.
1. Have adverts, but not targeted ones (the blurb says that they don't scrape and sell data, not that they're totally anti-ad)
2. Have a subscription model, where people pay for extra features, keeping the vanilla option free.
"Ello is a Public Network
Ello is a platform built for posting and sharing public content. You should assume that anything you post on Ello other than private messages will be accessed by others.
Search engines will be able to see the content you post. Content you post may be copied, shared, or re-posted on Ello and on other parts of the internet in ways that you and we cannot control."
Just like that Emoji social network. And Google+, before it was compulsory. And every other piece of crap.
i would possibly be friends with one of you lot on it thats how im feeling about it
diaspora was no good. the best thing about it was cubbi.es and they stopped doing that.
but have no idea how to find anyone I know. @owen is some impostor.
I have no idea how to even post on it, can't put pictures up from work. but I can send out invites.
but much more poorly executed version of a friend of mines website. Especially design wise and everything. It will be interesting to see how it develops.
I WANT IN.
but people who scamper to be the first to get an invite to sites like this when they're empty and uninhabited are plain weird.
she gets loads of misdirected tweets for a porn star that has the same first name.
sure it'll be better if everyone's on there
as I am for everything except for twitter thanks to that bastard http://www.twitter.com/ma0sm
i want to know what it is
it's a load of shite for the time being.
I will also send you an invite to the other one.
fidel invited me already. You two are the best (marckee is now the worst)
I have lots to do today.
Turns out I'm gonna be pissing about on this instead.
Also, why no Android (/iOS) app?
they can't even afford to colour in their website let alone make an app out of it
the mobile page is actually much nicer than the standard web implementation
you need to give me your email address so I can email you the invite. you fools.
got loads to give away. come and get 'em. they come with cute little word-codes too. BLEURGHHHHH
i was going to think of something else but failed due to complete lack of imagination
twitter/dis/ello interface wormhole now open!
At gmail dot com
i'm never into the seeing who people are friends with and who's friends with them thing.
also why i never click like on facebook. i don't want people seeing the things i seriously like. so narcissiticit. though don't mind people seeing i like horses etc
and musicians post info and pictures and stuff so you don't have to use other websites
Have no idea what it is
and what does the eye mean?
So I gave up on that and just asked fidel_catsro for one.
I've turned off e-mail ones...
pretty pointless then
it describes itself as "beautiful" but isn't that for us to decide?
Seems a bit hipster-ish in its anti-design UI.
Seems awkward and broken (LOL, I complained about something else being broken!).
Apart from having ads, I can't see why it's any better or different than any other social network.
It's a bit charming, I suppose, but definitely not objectively beautiful.
it's not beautiful, just minimal.
me either. Why have I not been invited yet?
someone take @stephenfry
that's what I've done all morning.
this isn't the kind of morning I get payed for. I'm not sorry though.....not until they check my web history.
Just to hurt their feelings more than anything.
Thanks plastic Niks
its the new Bebo
pressed enter too soon :(
imagining everyone who's got an invite is having a wild time on there right now.
People used posterous and square space
I'm uninvited :(
But that's not the whole reason I instinctively hate it.
Seriously wondered why everyone was clambering to sign up.
Read the article marckee linked to.
"For anyone concerned about the future of Ello, they’ve assured us that the site will remain ad-free and porn friendly!"
Haha, ok guys. Ok.
the font they use is also shit
where someone says Facebook is dead while simultaneously providing stats that say the exact opposite.
I blame my work IT. it does weird things to the internet.
drownedinsound is free
It's a shit tumblr copy. I'm sure it could be hacked together with Rails with no problem. They've just got an interesting PR angle.
It looks unfinished and will be gone within the year.
Cheers again Goatmeat.
@colossalhorse, of course
is CG behind Netropolitan?
for people who somehow actually give more than one-sixteenth of a shit about social networking?
still want in though, invite pls
that would be grand. thanks!
but if you want an invite I have a couple send is a message
by the way we aren't having fun on there, it's shite
never say I don't know how to show you guys a good time.
I have loads of invites - they do work, eventually.
It's too complicated to have conversations...you can't even tell if one is happening or not. so inelegant for something alledgedly 'beautiful'
Be the first to mention it and look like a dweeb
japes is back!
Ello is dead!
