If you like the last few options, our competition has you covered. Otherwise, read on!
Choice. What a concept!
If you chose Option 1, you are the type of person whose idea of a good party is a beer keg at a baby shower or a beauty contest at a company picnic.
If you chose Option 2, you are the type of person who can appreciate Conntects, which means “Connect in Context.” At Conntects we do away with the infinite scrolling feed entirely. Instead, you get a dashboard showing which of your contacts have new posts, and you can arrange the order of your contacts by how you met them.
Infinite scrolling feeds are addictive.
Context shifts tire the brain.
What is your time worth?
What is your brain worth?
What is your privacy worth?
While Conntects will be a fee-for-service social media site once we get past the alpha test stage, it will be dirt cheap compared to Facebook—for those who value their time and brainpower.
And there's more!
If you just want to post quips, links, and pictures, we can do that. But we can also support long posts with fancy formatting when the inspiration hits:
Threaded commenting systems lead to indentations which run off the page. And keeping up with a conversation requires scanning comments you have already read, and going clickety clickety clickety until carpal tunnel syndrome kicks in.
Conntects features time ordered comments with hyperlinks and hover popups to show the replies.
And comments can have the same powerful formatting features as posts. You can have deep conversations on Conntects.
Remember the days of high trust blogging?
Conntects features blogs as well as personal feeds. The tag space is fresh and not polluted with spam. The commenters [will be] paying members and you will be able to ban those who are naughty.
Conntects blogs can be public, private, or even secret. And you don't need to deal with plugins and whatnot.
Conntects groups are powerful, thanks to our formatting and commenting features. Do you have a social club, church group, local political party, hobby network, alumni gathering, family reunion, or other social gathering you would like to host online? Conntects can help.
If you want yet more information, you can take the tour and learn about Conntects features in great detail.
If you want to know how Conntects supports inline pictures and all that fancy formatting take the interactive QTML tutorial. No signup is needed. (And you can see our picture editor in action while you are at it.)
If, in the end, you prefer your online social life to be curated by evil robots, have a nice day. Thank you for your consideration.
