Thousands flock to anti-Facebook site ‘Ello’

Tens of thousands of social networking junkies have flocked to a new social networking website which has been dubbed the ‘anti-Facebook’.

ello.co seems to be gaining considerable traction after publishing a user-friendly policy on the content you submit. Basically Facebook likes to sell the things you place on Facebook to advertisers where as ello.co promises to keep yours private. You can read their manifesto here.

The BBC has reported that Ello received as many as 30,000 new sign-ups per minute over the weekend; traffic volumes that it struggled to cope with.

At the moment the website is in beta (testing) and is invite only, but you are able to show your interest by requesting an invitation.
