In the Back of the Class on Ello

elloI requested an invite to Ello weeks ago and I finally got a coveted reply.  Now I’m on.  I asked for an invite because, if it really is what people are saying it is — that is, if the platform is true to its manifesto — it’s the utopia of social networks.

My thoughts on Ello, so far anyway, are as follows:

  • There are some remarkably talented people in there, and remarkable people make you run like you’re at risk of getting left behind.  I like that.
  • The interface isn’t intuitive.  In fact, I can post a picture, or I can post words, but I haven’t figured out how to post pictures and words together in the same post.  Once again I’m in the back of the class.
  • So far so good.

If you’re a blog follower and you’re on Ello, please friend me so we can connect.

  1. I definitely approve of the ideas behind Ello (though I can’t speak for the interface, since I’m not yet a member). It should be interesting to see where it goes.
