Fed up with ad-ridden facebook ?

Social media network Ello is currently receiving up to 31,000 requests an hour from people wishing to join its platform, its founder has told the BBC. It was initially designed to just be used by about 90 friends of its founder Paul Budnitz, but the bike shop owner, from the US state of Vermont, opened it to others on 7 August.
It has been dubbed the "anti-Facebook" network because of a pledge to carry no adverts or sell user data.

The network will eventually make money by selling access to features, Mr Budnitz added.
"Like the app store, we're going to sell features for a few dollars," he said

As long as folks get what they pay for this seems like one of the most honest networks out there, let us hope they stick to their pledge, I think they have a future as a network not tarnished with the stain of selling out the users that made many founders famous.
