Most digitally connected people have heard of Ello by now. Ello is the social network that vows not to share your personal data for advertising gains. That’s their USP and that’s what’s drawing people in, leaving the novelty factor aside. They hope to make money from paid features and are accepting limited numbers of users due to server restrictions a.k.a. keep the network from crashing altogether (remember the fail whale?).
I was fortunate enough to get an invite from my network and I’m returning the favor. I have 10 invites up for grabs for the first 10 comments posted here, on my blog, that say what they think brands could do on Ello. Please use real email addresses for the comments so I can send you the invite codes.
I’ll start: Brands could use Ello to tell stories that are somewhere between blogging and tweeting, to add image and video and provide an uninterrupted experience via the Ello timeline.
