I 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.
