So, today I get this email from Ello announcing that March is NSFW month…
Following Google’s decision to ban NSFW content from Blogger (followed by an awkward reversal), we decided to celebrate freedom of speech on Ello by naming March NSWF Month.
Now, if you head to their new new freedom of speech page you can see this message and get an instant invite:
Ello respects your right to free speech.
If you’re afraid you may someday get kicked off your social network or blogging platform because you post NSFW content, don’t sweat it. You’re always welcome on Ello.
Despite being declared dead many times since it was launched last year, and being criticised for its ‘inability’ to appeal to masses, the invite-only ad-free social network has been growing as a niche platform for designers and artists.
Ello plans to use alternative methods to generate revenue – an Ello Feature app store yet to be launched, and a t-shirt sale that sold “tens of thousands” of shirts.
Haters gonna hate. Meanwhile, enjoy your NSFW month!
