EvolveSociety believes an ad-free social network that gives you complete control over your data is the future of social media, and essential to freedom in our quickly evolving, co-creative media landscape.
We feel it is urgent to evolve social technology as a utility on behalf of humanity, not for the commodification of the individual. We are starting this social network as a radical reboot of what a truly independent communication utility can stand for, in service to the US Constitution and Article 17 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Recent revelations that Facebook, Skype, Google, Apple, Microsoft and others have given the NSA access to their data as part of their covert PRISM program puts us all in an Orwellian nightmare. Our online communications – to our lovers, families, friends and co-workers – are now being stored for selective screening and evaluation, in secrecy, without our consent and outside of our control.
While it currently may not be possible to protect domestic online communication from unconstitutional NSA surveillance, at EvolveSociety, we treat your privacy as truly private, and your data as your property. We define everything you post to the site as your property, and we give you user-friendly privacy settings for every action you take.
EvolveSociety also wipes out your IP info, so if someone wants to track your usage or where you are uploading from, we will have no record of it. Furthermore, if you choose to delete your profile or any of your information from the network, all your data will be permanently deleted.
Unlike Facebook and other social networks, we are ad-free forever. Facebook sells your life – your every experience, intimate personal history, family events, even your tragedies – for a profit every single day. We don’t want to live in a world where our lives are products, to be sold off on a digital age plantation.
Unless you directly provide it to a third-party application, EvolveSociety will never rent, sell or share your information with any third-party. Period.
Initially, EvolveSociety is free for everyone, and whoever joins us now will have a free LIFETIME membership.After January 1st, new members can join for the price of a song, just 99 cents per month. Your 99 cents per month lets us keep the lights on, scale this service and launch a pioneering For-Community-Profit reward system.
We Are A For-Community-Profit Initiative
A For-Community-Profit Initiative means we strongly believe in financially rewarding our community based on participation as social commerce. To put our money where our mouth is, we’re going to distribute 50% of the membership revenue, after operating costs, to our community.
Throughout the network, you’ll notice the beginnings of an action-based point system called EvolveCurrency.Unlike the plantation model, which sells you for someone else’s profit, we think that the more people take action and participate in your efforts, the more money you should make. We’re developing EvolveCurrency to financially reward members for multiple outcomes: for creating community-enhancing content, for members liking, sharing and/or commenting on your posts, for when they participate in your projects, and more.
We will also model a culture of financial transparency by publishing our operating budget and other relevant documents online. We are determined to work with, empower and inspire all of our members to build a mutually beneficial global community of active stakeholders that evolve society.
