#Anonymous Backs New Encrypted Social Network To Rival #Facebook

A new social network has been launched, vowing more transparency, security, and privacy than Facebook and other social media giants. Backed by the hacktivist group Anonymous, it will encrypt all messages, shielding data from governments and advertisers.

At first glance, Minds.com appears similar to any other social network. It provides a person’s followers with the latest updates, allowing their friends to comment and promote posts.

But the major difference exists behind the scenes. Minds.com doesn’t aim to profit from gathering data. In fact, its goal is the opposite – to encrypt all messages so they can’t be read by governments or advertisers.

The social network will also reward users for interacting with posts. This can be done by voting, commenting or uploading.

The rewards will come in the form of points, which can be exchanged for “views” of your posts. Simply put, the more active you are, the more your posts will be promoted by the social network.

“For every mobile vote, comment, remind, swipe & upload you earn points which can be exchanged for views on posts of your choice. It’s a new web paradigm that gives everyone a voice,” the Minds.com website reads.

Content will be boosted using a transparent algorithm, as opposed to Facebook’s method, which largely remains a mystery.

In addition, Minds.com is entirely open source, allowing anyone to contribute to the social network’s design and upkeep.
