EyeEm lets users snap new photos directly, or import images from the Camera Roll. There’s a feature in EyeEm, Picked by EyeEm Selects, that scans your images and picks out photos with the highest aesthetic score, according to their algorithm. It’s safe and completely private, since the scanning is just done on your mobile device, not on their servers.
It brings the best of both Instagram and Facebook together into one beautiful app for sharing everything from photos and videos, to music and books. And if you ever find yourself overwhelmed with too many friends on Path, you can take advantage of the convenient "Inner Circle" feature to bring you back to your connections with those you care about most.

StatusNet funktioniert für den Anwender wie Twitter – oft funktionieren sogar die gleichen Clients mit Twitter und StatusNet. Administratoren können sich aber selbst einen Server einrichten und sind damit nicht direkt abhängig vom Funktionieren einer zentralen Infrastruktur. Wer will, kann sogar einen Twitter‐​ähnlichen Dienst nur für den internen Gebrauch zum Beispiel in einer Firma einrichten.
I have had Twitter since 2008, never used it until this Winter when we did daily treks to another city for health treatments. The rotten weather, road closures and guess what, the cops use Twitter, hydro guys, the road guys, the weather guys, they all use Twitter, so I'm sticking with Twitter. I'm probably in the minority, but I use my phone for texting and communicating when necessary. Gave up my landline 3 years ago and have a good data plan (2 phones, one for me, one for hubs). Twitter it is!
It's very much like Twitter with a character limit of 500, except there's not *one* website you have to trust, but you can choose the mastodon server ("instance") that you trust and they are linked, so you can follow people from other instances. The instances all have their own rules, so you can pick a place with as few or many rules as you are comfortable with. mrmbl • May 2017 • 12 agrees and 5 disagrees Disagree   Agree
Diaspora's key advantage is that it's based on open source software that multiple servers can run. It does not put your private information, your likes, your contacts and your photos in the hands of one corporation who then use it to increase their own private profits by selling your privacy. Diaspora is much smaller though. The UI feels more like Google Plus than Facebook. JohnFastman • Dec 2016 • 8 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree
I'm going to end this piece by stating that I love Instagram. It is where all my clients are on a daily basis, I get to engage with new audiences, connect with new creatives, and often scroll till my thumb gets numb. But Instagram is also a victim of it's own success. The bombardment of bots (which will hopefully slow down) that auto-comment, limited search engine, and increase in sponsored posts is spoiling the broth. I've given five alternatives above that each bring something different to the party, and may create new avenues of interest and creative expression to pursue in this digital, mobile age. Please share any of your own alternatives below.
Join Robert Holden on a 4-Day retreat with Alternatives in the beautiful Montserrat Monastery in Catalonia Spain - Spiritual Growth and the Enneagram - last few places left - 11th-14th April https://www.eventbrite.co.uk/e/spiritual-growth-the-enneagram-with-robert-holden-retreat-in-montserrat-monastery-2019-registration-54112401650 …pic.twitter.com/gjZHeV7puk

Facebook has determined that they control thought, speech, and the right to sell your life to others. A syndicate of overreaching leftists! Opinion is just that. Everyone believes something in their inner most thought processes. The have the courage to share it, only to have the grimy boot of Facebook police squash their beliefs. All after they profit handsomely on your private life! Hate Facebook ,and wish there was a good alternative to what used to be a great social site. It is no longer. It is a thought control monster!

This is one of the oldest Facebook alternatives out there and also one of the most unique in terms of its setup. Rather than being owned by a single company, the open-source Diaspora software can be run by anyone who wants to set up a server. Users can choose which “pod” they want their account information to be stored on and set up an account there. Once their data is on that server, they can interact with any other user on the network, regardless of host location.

The fragmentation that easily happens in decentralized networks can be a blessing, especially for groups that form around beliefs or identities where it can be hard to meet people safely. For instance, those belonging to marginalized groups, or folks with more fringe or misunderstood interests tend to appreciate the in-group feeling they get from a federated social network.
BuddyPress can be a Facebook alternative, depending on your needs. It's a Wordpress add-on, which means if you self-host or have hosted for you a Wordpress blog or website, you can add BP to enable you to create a social network of your own. Do it on your server and keep your privacy! JohnFastman • Dec 2016 • 4 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree

But what if consumers are ready for a new new thing? What if smaller, higher-quality, more engaged audiences can self-assemble around a brand? What if consumers are yearning for restored trust, a semblance of privacy, and true transparency? A tall order, to be sure. But if you could leverage a trusted brand to fill the bill, is the time right for the emergence of focused branded social networks? I’m pretty sure the answer is yes.
The next Instagram alternative is Vero, which is an emerging social networking platform launched last 2015. The mentioned image-sharing app reportedly became the most downloaded social networking platform in 18 countries. In case you are looking for an ad-free community, this is the best choice for you. Due to popular demand for this app in other countries, it extended its “free for life” offer for every new member.
Instagram's popularity with photographers is incomparable. What is essentially a free portfolio building app disguises itself as a powerful marketing tool to connect with prospective clients, but it suffers at times due to its sheer size and scope. Maybe you're bored of sieving through lame #goals and #inspiration posts, and want to know what mobile friendly alternatives are out there? Well folks, I'm here to tell you.

Groups are the hardest feature of Facebook to replace, since they serve a wide range of purposes for different people. If you're looking to organize friends and family in one place, GroupMe is a great choice. The app helps create an organized group chat, where you can share photos and messages. If you're looking for a larger circle of people interested in the same topic, there's almost certainly a sub-group on Reddit to fill your needs. The forum site has active communities organized around everything from skincare to anime.

Minds is a good alternative to Twitter because it doesn't have the baggage that comes with Twitter's many moderation issues. Minds has a much better transparant policy in which the things you post are actually visible to other people. Minds is hands down the best one-on-one alternative to Twitter's functions without the amateurish censoring of dissenting opinion. stefandekkers • Mar 2017 • 10 agrees and 2 disagrees Disagree   Agree

The best replacement is a password manager, which can store your credentials for every site you use in one place. It can also generate a new, secure password every time you sign up for a new website or service. Here's an in-depth guide to choosing the best password manager for you and why you should be using one. Our two favorite picks are 1Password and LastPass.

There are also sister “apps” to Steemit that work within the Steem blockchain. These include DTube (a YouTube alternative), DMania (getting paid for memes), DLive (for live streaming) and Zappl (a Twitter alternative.) My very first Zap just read: “This is my very first Zappl and I have absolutely no idea what I’m doing,” and it earned me six cents. You can learn more about these apps by reading the Steemit story here. Steemit also has an active “in person” community, including a Steem Creators Conference that’s coming to Las Vegas in mid-April.
Here’s what Mastodon is: an open-source, community-run microblogging website. It lets you post “toots,” and you can “boost” other users’ posts. It’s mostly like Twitter, but instead of living in one place, the social network lives in different chunks, called “instances,” each with its own rules and administrators. That’s what makes up a “federation,” and it protects the integrity of the service—there is no single, central server. So, if one instance stops paying for their internet or forgets to re-up their URL, the rest are unharmed in their semi-permeable silos.
Tumblr is another free social networking platform like Instagram. It is famous for offering its microblogging interaction. Unlike some other social networking platforms, on Tumblr, you can only create a short content post where members can post text, images, videos, links, and audio files. Moreover, this program is available in all popular mobile operating systems. It is also accessible on Mac and Windows PC. The dashboard feature of this app allows the users to search blogs or visit and follow other users easily.
Look familiar? We originally published this post shortly after Facebook's acquisition of and the Android launch of Instagram. We were concerned then about the influence Facebook would have on it, and now it's borne fruit in the form of an invasive terms-of-service agreement. The agreement gives Instagram rights to and ownership of your photos to sell and use in ads as they see fit. Sure, you probably don't care if they sell that photo of your coffee foam, but you and your friends may care if they sell photos of your faces or likenesses to a company that uses your shot in their ad material. Unfortunately, at this stage the only way to opt-out is to close your account and move to another service, like some of these great alternatives.
Invitations to dinner parties; updates about work; an away day with the college football team: if you’re not using WhatsApp, you run the risk of missing out on important information. With more than a billion worldwide users to date, the app is more popular than almost any other on the market. But this networking comes with its disadvantages too: the main one being that WhatsApp shares user data...

Someone You Loved is Capaldi’s first single to pass the mark, while Giant is Harris’ 20th and Rag’n’Bone Man’s third. Overall consumption of Harris tracks since his 2007 debut Acceptable In The 80s stand at 22,544,175. That’s a huge amount but Rihanna - with whom he spent six weeks at No.1 with We Found Love in 2011 – dwarfs that with a to-date tally of 41,073,313 since her 2005 debut. Steel Banglez, AJ Tracey and MoStack all score their first Top 10 single, with their collaboration Fashion Week becoming the highest of this week’s five new entries to the Top 75 at No.7 (31,270 sales). It is Steel Banglez’ third Top 75 hit as a credited artist – he has many more as a producer - AJ Tracey’s 10th and MoStack’s sixth. Four weeks after peaking at No.7, Options makes gains for the second week in a row for NSG feat. Tion Wayne, and returns to the Top 10, climbing 11-10 (24,899 sales). And four weeks after debuting and peaking at No.8, Walk Me Home rallies 12-9 (27,350 sales) for Pink, helped by its newly-released promotional video. There are new peaks inside the Top 10 for Just You And I (4-3, 40,727 sales) by Tom Walker, Sucker (5-4, 36,898 sales) by Jonas Brothers, Location (8-6, 31,564 sales) by Dave feat. Burna Boy and - improving its chart position for the eighth straight week since it debuted at No.43 - I’m So Tired (9-8, 28,138 sales) by Lauv & Troye Sivan. Completing a rare Top 10 in which eight tracks climb two are static and none fall, Break Up With Your Girlfriend, I’m Bored surfs 6-5 (32,922 sales) for Ariana Grande. Overall singles sales are up 4.66% week-on-week at 18,494,978. That is their second highest level to date, and 12.33% above same week 2018 sales of 16,465,382. Paid-for sales are down 0.44% week-on-week at 741,229, and are 28.55% below same week 2018 sales of 1,037,469. 27 years after he topped the album chart with his eponymous debut solo album, Michael Ball returns to the summit with Coming Home To You. The album is a collection of covers by the 56-year-old, with many of the songs pre-dating Ball’s first album, including To Love Somebody (The Bee Gees, 1967), Love Is Like A Butterfly (Dolly Parton, 1974) and Miss You Nights (Cliff Richard, 1975) and Sail On (The Commodores, 1979). Coming Home To You is Ball’s first album since his back-to-back No.1 collaborations with fellow tenor Alfie Boe, Together (November 2016), and Together Again (November 2017). Thus providing his fourth No.1 in all, it is also his 22nd Top 75 album, and his ninth Top 10 album, it can’t match those Boe collaborations for first week sales. Consumption of 18,039 units (including 114 from sales-equivalent streams) – the lowest for a No.1 since Ed Sheeran’s Divide topped 83 weeks ago with 13,975 sales - is considerably below Together’s first week tally of 44,860 and Together Again’s 43,795. It is also below the 19,087 copies that Boe’s subsequent solo album, As Time Goes By, sold when it debuted and peaked 17 weeks ago at No.10. Blending original recordings of the former with newly-recorded instrumental elements provided by the latter, The Carpenters With Royal Philharmonic Orchestra reached No.8 last December and, with Richard Carpenter on a UK promotional tour, re-enters this week at No.10 (5,880 sales). George Ezra scores his sixth Top 40 single with Pretty Shining People (41-38), while parent album Staying At Tamara’s sales increase 13.17% week-on-week to 11,541 – a 10 week high – as it climbs 6-5. The rest of the Top 10: Singing To Strangers (1-2, 14,046 sales) by Jack Savoretti, The Greatest Showman soundtrack (4-3, 13,799 sales), What A Time To Be Alive (3-4, 1,534 sales) by Tom Walker, Bohemian Rhapsody (5-6, 10,710 sales) by Queen, Psychodrama (2-7, 10,495 sales) by Dave, Thank U Next (7-8, 9,119 sales) by Ariana Grande and A Star Is Born (8-9, 7,438 sales by Lady Gaga & Bradley Cooper. Overall album sales are up 4.86% week-on-week at 1,796,945, 4.67% below same week 2018 sales of 1,882,925. Sales-equivalent streams accounted for a record 1,182,979 sales, 65.83% of the total. Sales of paid-for albums are up 4.25% week-on-week at 613,966, 33.84% below same week 2018 sales of 928,024.
