I am pretty sure MeWe is not the right solution to the social web problem too.
For Plussers, it may look like the best solution to move to from G+ because MeWe offers very similar feature set and the app feel is very close to the original G+ but doesn’t solve the fundamental problem that it’s a network backed by a company that may or may not go out of business anytime. Just like Google decided to kill the G+ they just may for whatever reason run out of money and choose to close the network too. There’s no guarantee it will not happen and what then? Problem is still the same.
The only real solution to this problem is a point-to-point solution like the Scuttlebutt https://www.scuttlebutt.nz/ where you own your data, and no single point of failure is involved such as company running the platform on its servers.
The Scuttlebutt project architecture makes sense, feels like a real solution to the social web problem, used technology is superb, and the momentum is there too. I recommend this talk by André Staltz – Reinvent the social web https://staltz.com/reinvent-the-social-web.html if you’d like to know more.
I’d love to know your opinion!
