UPDATE – ALL INVITES HAVE BEEN GIVEN OUT! Thank you for participating!

Ello.co is beta testing and we have 5 invites to give away!

What is “Ello.co” and why is getting the social mediaverse knickers in a twist Delaware, Ohio may ask? Per their website:

What is Ello?

Ello is a simple, beautiful, and ad-free social network created by a small group of artists and designers.

We originally built Ello as a private social network. Over time, so many people wanted to join Ello that we built a public version of Ello for everyone to use.

Ad Free

Ello doesn’t sell ads. Nor do we sell data about you to third parties.

Virtually every other social network is run by advertisers. Behind the scenes they employ armies of ad salesmen and data miners to record every move you make. Data about you is then auctioned off to advertisers and data brokers. You’re the product that’s being bought and sold.

Collecting and selling your personal data, reading your posts to your friends, and mapping your social connections for profit is both creepy and unethical. Under the guise of offering a “free” service, users pay a high price in intrusive advertising and lack of privacy.

We also think ads are tacky, that they insult our intelligence and that we’re better without them.

In essence, a new social media like Twitter and Facebook taking the world by storm.

So who wants an invite we ask? Leave a comment below about DelawareO and we will pick 5 random people over the next 24 hours to receive and invite.

Make sure you leave a good email address, dont worry it is not public and we are not going to spam you!

Will Ello.co be a game changer in social media and force Twitter and Facebook to rethink their strategy? We will see!

  14. I would love to help beta test the new site. I’m a professional graphic artist and would like an ad-free social network profile that I could use as a portfolio. Deviant art is good, but have to pay to remove the ads. So Ello would be perfect.

  15. I would love an invite!!

  28. Michael Johnson says:

  29. Randy Hoffman says:

    Sounds cool, sign me up

  30. John Buehler says:

    Irony: Having a sign that says “Advertise here” following an article about a new social media service that prides itself on being advertising free. 😉

    still want an invite!

  31. I remember you announcing the launch of DelawareO, and I see it has grown into a very dynamic site for the city of Delaware! Great job. Rocky! Let’s see what this thing is going to be about. I think it may be very niche right now, to take off fast. And if it does take off fast, it won’t be long, before marketing becomes part of the draw….with many eyes in one place. But artists seem to have a high level of integrity with their work, so maybe they’ll keep a tight lid on it.

  32. I’d love to see where will this lead the web… and see it from the beta start.

  33. hi Rocky,
    I would like to participate and see if I can help provide feedback as well.

  34. I’d like to give it a try!!! looking forward to connecting Rocky!!

  35. Heard about this last week. I’ll throw my hat into the ring.

  36. Thank you!
