For those people like myself who have been on one social network or the other for many years, you are probably thinking that the last thing we need is another Social network. Right?
Well Ello founder Paul Budnitz disagrees. Ello is a new social network platform launched in March 2014 and has recently started to gain popularity following the controversial enforcement of Facebook’s real-names policy against drag queens in San Francisco.
The drag community has been fighting with Facebook for weeks regarding the social network’s “real name” policy.
Facebook has been cracking down on the names people are using on the site, forcing them to use the names that are on their government-issued ID cards or risk getting their profile suspended, in an effort to “keep our community safe.”
The irony, however, is that sometimes people use pseudonyms on the site in order to feel safe.
