This is also where I moved my Arch Group to https://mewe.com/gro...40f3002b383449b

We started covering the social media platform soon after we found out Google Plus was going to be closed. I not only moved to the platform but I also moved the Techaeris brand page to the platform as well. Back in March, we reported that the platform had surpassed 4 million users and just 3-months later it has passed 5 million users.

The company is on track to have 30 million members by yearend and projects 150 million by the end of 2020. They have achieved 405% growth in 2018 and is already growing twice as fast on a daily basis in 2019. MeWe’s growth is organic and the company runs no paid marketing campaigns.

MeWe’s advisory board includes Sir Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the Web, who says, “MeWe gives the power of the Internet back to the people with a platform built for collaboration and privacy.”

MeWe’s CEO, Mark Weinstein, is a leading privacy advocate and an original founder of social media. “It’s heartwarming to see MeWe achieve breakout success on a global scale. MeWe is built on trust, control and love for social media users worldwide. In the spirit of human camaraderie, MeWe is for everyone wanting social media to align with their principles on privacy, safety, and authentic, fun sharing of like-minded and disparate ideas.”

MeWe’s groundbreaking “Privacy Bill of Rights” guarantees members have total control of their data, newsfeeds and privacy. MeWe also safeguards its members with a strong Terms of Service designed to keep bad actors out.

Odd but then again, I block all scripting using Privacy Badger, DecentralEyes and AdNauseum. Looking at the source, it looks like they just use a lot of javascript.

Nope . I have just the standard Arch FF offering , I do have NoScript but it shows nothing on the site, so am just a tad puzzled. As far as I can tell I am not running FF through firejail as I found it interfered with surfing and was going to get around to setting it up to suit me at some time. So am puzzled. :228823:

Very odd, I have the same setup.

And I connect via other networks, computers and OSs (I sometimes browse at work).

By "join" do you mean sign up? And have you tried again? Perhaps their server was acting up or something.

Yes, it's the Javascript that is doing the choking... freezes, high RAM suckage, total lockups, etc.

Do you have problems with other javascript based sites?

Sometimes, yes. It's usually sites that are using heavy amounts of Javascript and poorly or incorrectly coded scripting. Seriously, check out the page source on some commercials sites. The misuse and outright mistakes in some Javascripting is ridiculous.

Umm... YUP! Javascripting errors (on their side). That's the downfall of MeWe for me... among other things that I didn't like about it like no Public stream, etc.
