Ello Declares March "NSFW Month"

Mar 03, 2015


BEST PRACTICES SERIES

Ello, the ad-free social network, named March "NSFW Month." Throughout the month, Ello will celebrate freedom of speech by highlighting the role that censorship plays in social media, government, and the arts.

Those who believe in a censorship-free internet are invited to sign-up for Ello. They will receive an immediate invitation to join Ello, with a call to post content that symbolizes a stand against censorship on the Internet. Throughout March posts by Ello users that represent the current fight for digital freedom of speech will be promoted and highlighted.

The recent announcement by Google that it would remove NSFW accounts from Google+ and Blogger (followed by itssubsequent reversal), and recent controversies as Facebook more aggressively has begun to remove user content they deem inappropriate, has galvanized some users. Ello does not censor or block NSFW content.

The Ello website launched in Beta on August 7, 2014. The network remains invitation-only, with new features released weekly and native mobile apps due in early Spring.
