Took years for Fakebook to get their app this good ... mainly because they’re more interested in ads and in harvesting your personally identifiable data, which MeWe doesn’t do!! Read for yourself:
MeWe Privacy Bill of Rights
The only social network that has one.
> You own your personal information & content. It is explicitly not ours.
> You never receive targeted third-party advertisements or targeted third-party content. We think that's creepy.

> We do not manipulate, filter, or change the order of your newsfeeds. Only you can do that.
> Permissions & privacy are your rights. You control them.
> You control who can access your content.
> You can opt out of our member directory to protect your privacy.
> We do not sell your personal information to anyone.
> Your face is your business. We do not use facial recognition technology.
> You have the right to delete your account and take your content with you at any time.
With all the banning going on at Facebook and Twitter, I think MeWe is about to get more popular. It is a lot like Facebook, but there are no ads, real gun emojis, more reactions, and a better system for adding photos to albums. Things I don’t like are that business pages and certain other perks aren’t free, but at least they aren’t serving us ads, and they don’t have the background thing that Facebook has. Overall, I’m excited about this platform. There is a ton of activity in groups.
Let’s be honest. The main reason I am giving WeMe five stars is because it isn’t Facebook/Instagram or Twitter. I am working on getting the people I interact with to join as well. There are things I like and things I don’t like (or maybe I just haven’t figured it out yet).
Wishing WeMe all the success possible right now. Don’t sell out to the Dark Side!
MeWe is difficult to use. Also it does not have live video streaming capability. Video must be prerecorded and uploaded.
Several musician friends snd I hold virtual open mic sessions using live video streaming. Can’t do that here. It is an important part of my social networking experience. I can’t delete Facebook until someone provides this function.
As a 36-year active-duty Army soldier now retired, I find our liberties sacred. I spent a career defending the rights of all Americans to speak. The left has so infringed upon our requests to talk openly that it is treasonous. MeWe, unlike FB, allows uncensored dialogue. I remain on FB only to protest, but MeWe is my sanctuary. Thank you, MeWe...
has curated a platform for people and groups such as right wing extremists. has actively recruited for them via newsmax even. the groups are probably not surveilled much if at all by the platform. i hope the fbi is watching especially after the terrorist attacks on the capitol
also notifications rarely work and the privacy claims are dubious
It’s COVID-19 and I can’t socialize face to face as I am accustomed. So, social media with friends? What a stress trap sone sites are. Not MeWe. I define my interests and screen out all the things I find stressful. So lots of recipes, beautiful photos, clean funny memes in my selections. You can always define what’s yours.
The app will not open. Have an iPhone 10 and as soon as I try to open, it shuts down immediately. I have deleted and reinstalled and not help. I hope this update fixes this problem. I was not even able to make a complaint because of shutting down so had to write when new update. Hope when I close it, it will reopen.
I’m not sure if it’s just me or my device, but the feature to search up certain messages is gone. I search up a word and only get a recent message from a few days. When before I would messages from months to maybe even the last year. I’d appreciate it if this feature was fixed or brought back.
Happy to pay a small price to own my own data and privacy. Especially after we saw what the tech oligarchs attempted in 2020 and early 2021.
Free is never free, you pay with your rights and privacy.
One thing I wish they had was a tool to migrate all Facebook data over to MeWe.
