A real social revolution? Be different. The mystery behind new site, Unthink, is waiting behind a request for your email address. No launch date, but a few years in the making and said to be on target with today’s market rather than outdated from development day zero. Get a set of developers and thinkers together who are talented and bright minds fed up with social media giants like Facebook and now Google with G+: you have recipe for a network platform challenge set to bring users and brands together.
Unthink takes a look at how users have been left out of the real loop when they are the reason a network is popular and successful. Free is great but comes at the price of little control on privacy, tools that enhance the social experience the way a user would benefit and even leaves out the real access by brands to engage with users. Facebook made changes to its TOS, changed privacy controls and the layout to access the information, introduced features that left a user wide open by default (security, privacy settings etc.) and only had “oops” to say when it was discovered app developers have access to large amounts of user profile data. Checked your spam box lately?
Will Unthink really be a major change worth calling a social revolution? The Unthink Manifesto: “We’ve been waiting for things to change. We are not waiting any more.” Hopefully the mystery will be worth it considering there seems to be a long list of “new” applications and sites requesting your email address for an invite. Only way to find out is share your info with Unthink as you did with Facebook and Google in Beta and see what’s at the end of the road…someday in the future.
