WeGather is the platform for valuable discussions, led by validated experts and enthusiasts, on any topic you might be passionate about. WeGather has come about in response to the manipulation of the content we see and the lack of meaningful discussions taking place online. On most of the existing social media platforms, you wouldn’t be alone in feeling overwhelmed by the sheer volume of ‘’content’’, much of which is trivial, low quality and lacking context, if it’s not outright clickbait and fake news. You’re also over having social media companies bombard you with thinly veiled ads ads, censoring your non-mainstream views, manufacturing ideological consent and selling your data to advertisers and political organisations.
The problem all stems from the decision very early on in the internet to try and make information and content free- it sounds good, but now it is clear it’s a huge mistake. Someone is always paying, and whoever pays is in control. If the advertisers are the ones paying they are paying to control your behaviour.
We get it. It’s time to make a change, but you're not going to pay for the sake of it - paying has to make a difference for you. And the money needs to go to the ones who deserve it - the great content creators, not the advertisers. That’s why we’re about to change ýour social media experience for the better by dishing up only relevant, high quality discussions that matter to you. Just like people are willing to pay a little for Netflix because it’s better than free TV, we know that people will only be willing to pay for social content if it is truly better.
How wegather changes the game
On WeGather, only validated experts and enthusiasts who can show that they know what they are talking about get to lead discussions, and those who rise in the ranks for the best discussions, based on your vote, can start to monetise their contributions, via donations from their followers, or by offering paid discussions, subscription communities, or paid private chats.
This patronage model also means we don’t need to run ads. While the WeGather service is free, (as are most public discussions), users can also choose to back their favourite content providers through donations or by paying to access their exclusive premium discussions. That means our users will always be in control of what happens on WeGather, rather than large corporate advertisers. If you want to stop being manipulated on the internet, and put the power back in your hands, then join the WeGather movement.
