Say hello to my Vero friend
So you've heard of Vero right? No... Well let me introduce you to the new kid on the block, yep another social network! After the change in the Instagram feed and many users looking for an alternative, Vero seems to be the popular choice.
The only issue with being very, very popular is that you may crash! And that is exactly what Vero has done. We were one of the first million to join Vero on the weekend and we have tried to take a good look at it since but so far we just have server error messages.
Why do we need ANOTHER social network? Who knows, but Vero are looking to be different from the rest, how??
Here's what Vero see themselves as.. "Unlike most of our competitors, Vero’s business model isn’t based on serving advertisements. As a subscription-based service, our users are our customers, not the product we sell to advertisers.Our subscription model will allow us to keep Vero advertising-free, and to focus solely on delivering the best social experience instead of trying to find new ways to monetize our users’ behavior or tricking them back into the app with notifications."
They go on to say.. "The feed is composed of your posts and the posts of people you're either connected with or people you follow. We don't curate it, manipulate it, insert advertising in it, or hold back posts. You see what has been shared with you, when it's been shared with you.You won’t have to pay to “boost your post”, or “reach your audience.”"
