Facebook insurgent Altly’s product idea
Altly team, in order for us to better understand the next-generation network platform, specially made a brief description for us:
Facebook is dramatically changing the way we communicate with our friends, family, business associates, and the other groups of people in our lives.
We are pressured to become “friends” with people that we would not have had ongoing communication with prior to Facebook.
We are also pressured to share more and more personal information with not only “friends” but “friends of friends”.
Facebook’s privacy settings are so complex that even advanced users have a hard time configuring them, understanding who can see what, and Facebook continues to change its privacy settings without first alerting users, creating serious problems with serious consequences.
Facebook subjugates our personal information and our digital identities, and then sells us, as products, to advertisers, without regard for our rights, and with no value to us.
Facebook doesn’t just want to own our communications while on Facebook, but is spreading its tentacles across the entire Web with their Facebook Connect login, Facebook Like buttons, and Facebook Comments, making it practically impossible to have private use of the Internet.
At this time there are no real alternatives to Facebook, as most people believe that no one can possibly create an alternative.
http://Altly.com is building an alternative to Facebook, with a dramatically different view of our rights to privacy and ownership of our personal information.
Current problems of social networking seems that many people have seen, Diaspora is doing, now Altly also comes, the key question is how to do, and grasp the details of products and meet user needs. For this product, always need more courage of “CHANGE”. Yes, change the network, change the status quo, need to break everything, but not destroy everything.
