Have you ever posted something on social media only to see it backfire?
We’ve all had those ‘TMI’ (too much information) moments in which a shared picture or opinion is misconstrued or provokes an instant reaction that wasn’t intended. Luckily, there’s a new social media platform that’s solving this problem. Just10 was developed in Vancouver and allows users to fully say what’s on their mind. Users can communicate with an intimate group of trusted friends (just 10 of them), allowing everyone to rest in ease since their messages will be gone in 10 days.
According to Frederick Ghahramani, Just10’s privacy advocate and creator, the app reduces social media paranoia by keeping users’ stories private.
“Just10 was borne out of a need for a safe place for people to be able to freely express themselves and share the real stories of their lives with trusted friends,” says Ghahramani.
“With all eyes on social media for the next ‘foot in mouth’ incident, Just10 enables users to share opinions and experiences without fear of being profiled, judged, tracked by advertisers looking to exploit their data, hiring managers looking to profile their personalities, or opportunistic cybercriminals looking to execute insidious hacks.”
Just10 is a new social media platform developed in Vancouver. It aims to promote privacy and free expression. The app is currently downloadable for Apple, Android and BlackBerry 10 mobile devices. It’s available for use on any web-enabled device and is designed for those who do or should value privacy – parents, young professionals, celebrities, and activists for example. It’s also designed for anyone who’s worried about their information being used against them by cyber criminals through data breaches and internet fraud.
We’ve compiled a list of Just10’s four key features and characteristics as listed below.
Private and intimate
Just10 is private by default. Messages will only be viewed by a select group of 10 friends you want to add to your network. Once they’re added you can start sharing private or group messages to your trusted few. Member data is not public-facing and cannot be searched for online.
Here today, gone in 10 days
All messages, photos and posts in Just10 are permanently deleted after 10 days
No ads, no nonsense
Just10 is 100% ad-free and the platform will never sell or rent subscriber information to advertisers or third-party companies. The platform doesn’t even collect many of the data points advertisers sell on to retailers or other third parties, like gender or location.
Forget ‘Likes’ and ‘Shares’. Just10 offers Meactions, a facility to store a range of user-generated selfies that can be used to visually react to friends’ posts.
You can download the Just10 app using iTunes for your iPhone, Google Play for Androids, and Blackberry World. Check out Just10 online for more information and stay in the know via Facebook and Twitter.
