Why Hubbook?

  

Mission Statement

You have a voice! You should be heard! Social media titans like Facebook and Twitter have a stranglehold on their users. They got people hooked on the massive platforms and then began to decide what content they were allowed to see, share, or post. Bottom line, if you don’t agree with their narrative, they will block, restrict, jail, and shadow-ban you. It’s time to fight back!

 

Hubbook’s mission is to provide an alternative social media platform, free from the barriers that are present in today’s massive networks. Unlike the tech-titan controlled networks who decide what people are allowed to see, Hubbook users are in control of their own experience.

 

People are encouraged to use Hubbook to make new friends in addition to connecting with current friends, family, and associates. Hubbook also allows page building to promote businesses, organizations, and ideas. Group creation allows communities to be built whereby people can meet, coordinate efforts, exchange ideas, or simply engage in a common fellowship. Direct messaging ensures personal private conversation between users.

 

While Hubbook maintains a code of decency, its creators do not violate personal privacy nor do they block real users from sharing information solely because they were reported by someone who was “offended”.

 

Aside from treating people with dignity and respect, Hubbook simply does not have a narrative to promote. So, come join the conversation and stay connected.   

 

Your Voice Is Our Vision! 

Social media was originally intended to provide a place where people could essentially connect with their friends, family, coworkers, etc. But these new networks provided something even more valuable and completely unforeseen. They gave people a voice in the world.

 

During a time when broadcasting and news creation was restricted to the very few, social media gave people a place to share information, ideas, and opinions with people all over the world.  

 

But the explosion of social media has brought with it, unintended consequences. Facebook, Twitter, Amazon,and Google-Youtube, virtually control the entire internet and to some extent the users of these platforms. They violate your privacy, track your habits, and collect and sell your personal data.

 

But the worst consequence of all is that these internet titans have decided to use their power to silence your voice.  They tell you how think, what you are allowed to post what you are allowed to see, and what you are allowed to share. If you violate their language control, they pull your posts, block your ability to share, and sometimes completely shut you down. And they NEVER give you an option to explain yourself.

 

 Hubbook is the new alternative to once again restore your voice in the world. Hubbook is committed to giving you a place to share your ideas with the world. Whether you are high profile with a million followers or just getting into the game, Hubbook will gladly give you a platform with the following in mind:

  • Basic decency will be used to determine what is a “bad post” when one is reported NOT whether you follow a narrative.
  • Posters will NOT be punished by having their outreach restricted.
  • Users will only see posts from their friends, communities, and pages, NOT based on some computer algorithm.
  • Community admins will be able to decide who joins and who gets blocked. YOU will be in complete control of YOUR own communities without fear of being blocked and losing control of your groups while awaiting to “get out of jail”.
  • User data will not be tracked and sold.
  • Advertising direction will not be based on collected data, but rather on real-time key strokes.
  • We will NOT suggest how to think politically
  • We will NOT punish people for sharing the idea of personal liberty
  • Your personal messages will always be YOUR personal messages

Get on Hubbook, get connected, and get your voice back!
