If you invest, you're betting Spoutible will be worth more than $20M in the future.
We invite you to be part of a groundbreaking venture that aims to redefine social media interactions for the better. Welcome to Spoutible, a pioneering social media platform with a vision to foster a safe, inclusive, and enjoyable online space "for all." Unlike conventional platforms, Spoutible is a beacon of innovation committed to ensuring that social engagements remain vibrant without compromising user safety.
Spoutible's emergence as a response to the need for a more inclusive and user-friendly social media platform is timely and significant. Its founder, Christopher Bouzy, who also founded the widely acclaimed Twitter analytics service Bot Sentinel, envisioned a space where users could engage in meaningful conversations without hate and misinformation. This vision resonated with many, especially in the wake of major social media acquisitions and the evolving digital landscape.
Furthermore, the first-hand accounts from beta testers and early adopters reflect a promising trajectory for Spoutible. The high ratings on app stores and positive reviews highlight a burgeoning community that appreciates the platform's fresh approach to social media engagement.
Spoutible's journey began as a community-driven endeavor, shaped by thousands who contributed to its development even before it had a name. This platform was created with a focus on community input, encompassing everything from feature selection to policy implementation. As Spoutible continues to evolve, maintaining this ethos of community-led growth and decision-making remains a core principle, influencing our choice of Wefunder for our fundraising efforts. Wefunder aligns with our mission to democratize social media, offering a space where everyone, not just big investors, can influence the future of digital communication.
In Nov of 2022, I conducted the following Twitter poll, and it started the discussion that led to Spoutible becoming a reality:
Our partnership with Wefunder is more than a financial strategy; it's an invitation to our community and beyond to become deeply involved in Spoutible's evolution. This approach allows our supporters to literally take ownership in the platform, ensuring that Spoutible stays true to the voices that matter the most – the users. Investing in Spoutible through Wefunder is a declaration of belief in a platform dedicated to authentic expression, user well-being, and fostering a healthier, more inclusive digital environment. As Spoutible grows, our investors do too, not just financially, but as crucial participants in a movement aimed at transforming social media for the better.
By choosing Wefunder, Spoutible reinforces its commitment to inclusivity and accessibility, allowing investment opportunities at various levels, making it possible for everyone to contribute and share in our collective success. Our choice of Wefunder mirrors the principles behind Spoutible; it's about fostering community, collaboration, and collective power to drive change. Wefunder is more than a funding tool; it is the embodiment of our philosophy, creating a social media platform that is truly for and by the people.
In a world increasingly connected by social platforms, the rise in hate speech casts a long, troubling shadow. Twitter has seen a stark increase in such toxic rhetoric, with data painting a harrowing picture: hate speech against gay men has climbed by 58%, against Jews by 61%, and a staggering 202% against Black individuals. This uptick signals a profound need for change—a shift towards platforms that nurture positivity and understanding.
Spoutible arrives as a beacon of hope amidst these turbulent digital waters. It emerges as a champion for a kinder, more responsible social media landscape, where conversations are anchored in dignity and mutual respect. As a harbinger of an enlightened digital age, Spoutible places safety and inclusivity at its core, steadfast in its mission to ensure that every voice not only resonates but does so within a space free from vitriol and discrimination.
The burgeoning popularity of Spoutible is a clear indicator of a collective desire for a paradigm shift. Its steady growth echoes the public's appetite for a sanctuary online, where the blight of hate does not mar the exchange of ideas. Spoutible is not merely a new player in the social media game; it is the dawn of a new era. It is an era where respect and diversity are not mere buzzwords but the very pillars that support every interaction, promising a digital community where the light of positive engagement dispels the darkness of hate.
