LONDONMarch 31,  /PRNewswire/ — A lot of people have been rattled into searching for alternative social media platforms as they become ever more uncomfortable with the way capitalist entities leverage control over the largest social networks in human history. Most do not like the way these companies buy and sell our data, our identities, and even our behaviour!

They employ the smartest people on the planet to influence our decisions every day. But really, there’s no great excuse for using these platforms except for the fact that everyone else is using them.

So, what about non-profit alternatives?

Enter a community network where users can post public or private 500-character messages similar to Twitter.

The site was set up by Dean Jones former Central St Martins College of Art & Design postgraduate who said, societal is part of a federated network. That means there is no one single entity that is in complete control. The basic idea is you join one instance and you can subscribe to people on your instance and to people in other instances. This develops into a large network of different communities all linked together into a huge distributed network of social connections which gives you a lot of freedom over your data.”

Jones hopes his digital platform will help create connections, not conflict.

Jones further said, “I stated societal with the simple hope of connecting people from around the world and allowing people to share their thoughts with a big audience and to create wearable art that tells a story, inspires us, and reminds us that we are all connected.”

The Core Principles of the Societal movement are:

  • Respect.
  • Justice/Fairness.
  • Honesty.
  • Service/Giving Back/Contribution.
  • Responsibility.
  • Family.
  • Community.

Jones is trying to shift the paradigm. In a web full of pseudo thought-leaders, Societal promises to be place that people from all walks of life can rely on and cater to those looking for fresh, new, authentic voices and believe wholeheartedly in community.

Societal offers free accounts and doesn’t serve ads.

    Hi Julie
    The only explanation is somewhere between the team undertaking a database clean your profile must have been wiped and the content accidentally attributed to another author. The only other way this can happen is if we sent out an email asking for you to confirm that you still consent to have an account on Godinterest and you didn’t respond in which case under the terms of the site the content would have been attributed to Godinterest with the name of the original author highlighted below the post. As its probably the former I can only apologize. But please reserve judgment before making accusations. Godinterest is by all intensive purposes a non-profit as any money to date the site has made has been 100% put back into ministry and so personally speaking in the 6 or so years I’ve worked on the project I haven’t made a penny. So nobody here has anything to gain by attributing your content to someone else. God Bless

    Hi Julie

    I picked up your email and can see the problem. We have over 4000 authors and I’m not sure how this happened but it will be corrected shortly. One thing I will say is please do not feel you have to spam to the site to get attention – it’s not christ-like. I’ve been unwell for a while so it’s not that anyone was ignoring you. I’m sure your aware that there is a horrible bug going around and right now I’m bearly able to read this message.

    Hello Dean,
    I’m trying to get in touch with you regarding the articles I wrote for you a couple of years ago that have now been attributed to a different author. I truly hope it was a mistake/carelessness and not an intentional thievery? I need to get credit for my intellectual property. It’s only the right thing for you to do.

    Please respond to me here or on Upwork right away. The reputation of your website (and your Christian witness) is at stake.
