African Based Social Media Platform Gscroll Welcome #Nigerians After Twitter Ban

African based social media site, Gscroll.com, which is still in beta development has welcome Nigerians locked out of Twitter after the federal government said they were banning the social media microblogging site in the country.

 

 

The platform which was launched in 2019, promises free speech and a shift from big tech predatory tendencies that comprise of misuse of users data and tracking for ad targeting. 

The platform also has groups and people can join any group they love. 

The Like button is padded up by an upvote and a downvote buttons which one can use to express like or dislike for a post.

The green social media website has a trending topic interface complete with a feature I think most bloggers will love, the blog post interface which is different from the one for common posting. The difference is that the common posts allow fewer characters of up to 280, whereas the blog interface takes more than that.

There is no censorship of topics of discussions. Though topics discussed mostly are normal football banter, relationship, individual musings etc.

You can create an account using  JOIN GSCROLL 

Well, its motto is free speech, forever!

Users can also create groups, and to avoid spamming this passes through a vigorous process of filtering through questions.

For marketers, Gscroll is a great place to get a real African audience, though one cannot at this point measure the reach of a post, as those tools are still under development.
