Ello.co a Real Threat For Facebook?
Ello.co is a new social networking site which is becoming a threat for facebook. But some critics believe that i can not compete facebook as its a premium site and a elite club. Common persons will not join it as they love to visit free social networking sites. On the other hand we have notice that when a product or brand becomes a status symbol then even ordinary people like it too. Every thing in the world has a era of success and after that its fall begins. Few years before yahoo and hotmail were ruling over the internet world but now Google and gmail have replaced them.
Human like change that’s why in spite of paid networking site ello.co is receiving 31000 request per hour. Is this not a alarm for facebook? No one is unbeatable under the sky. I personally like tumblr more than facebook but it could not attract the attention of masses at large. You nee to do some thing new and different to divert the attention of people towards you and ello.co has done it by demanding token fee for use of some of its features.
Now people are thinking that what’s new is there in ello for which it is demanding money an they are sending large number of requests to it. But any business need continuous hard work an changes. Facebook is still ruling the world and its not an easy task to beat it but still it is not an impossible task too. Critics who believe that ello will not be able to challenge facebook have an argument that only elite class will join it but same argument goes in favor of ello as masses follow the fashion, trend and brands adopted by elite class. Lets see who rules the world.
Ello lacks many features of popular social networking sites and its interface is also very simple but company is trying to introduce more features soon to make it a user friendly site.
Ello.co claims that neither the company will sell the data of its users to any third party nor they it will display ads on its site. Paul Budnitz is the founder of ello.co. He was a bike shop owner in USA and he designed this site just to contact his 90 friends. He feels proud when his network is called anti facebook but he claims that there is no competition between his network and facebook as FB is an advertising platform and ello is a social network. Lets see that ello will be able or not to change the habits of consumers about using free social networks.

Your social network is owned by advertisers.
Every post you share, every friend you make and every link you follow is tracked, recorded and converted into data. Advertisers buy your data so they can show you more ads. You are the product that’s bought and sold.
We believe there is a better way. We believe in audacity. We believe in beauty, simplicity and transparency. We believe that the people who make things and the people who use them should be in partnership.
We believe a social network can be a tool for empowerment. Not a tool to deceive, coerce and manipulate — but a place to connect, create and celebrate life.
You are not a product.
