adverts pay the bills :-)

Adverts help pay the bills. This is true but we have taken the decision to remove all advertising from this site.

We are a social media network but we are making some changes. We do not want our members to be exposed to the web giants and their big data and the psychometric profiling they use.

We want this to be a safe place for our members to interact and express themselves. For this reason we are also removing all Google analytics tracking.

So come on in and enjoy socialising and expressing yourself without fear of data profiling or  persuasive marketing.

We are looking at other more ethical ways to make money through writing books, creating some insomnia self help courses and asking members to donate - but only if they can truly afford it.

Part one Search Engines
