Goal


CounterSocial is two years old and we are approaching 30,000 users. We have created a social media platform that counters trolls, bots, and nefarious or fake accounts and fake news to give people a great experience enjoying all the benefits of a casual, happy way to be social online without harassment. All with baked-in privacy, identity breach alerts, LIVE streaming TV, before-its-news incident alerts, secure file-sharing, NO ADS and more!

This has been achieved primarily with the money, time and expertise of ONE person, for over two years single-handedly. Our new optional subscription Pro accounts service is picking up, but subscriptions at this point are not nearly enough to offset the costs.

Creating and maintaining a social media platform and network isn’t easy and it isn’t cheap. Moral support is great, but the cost of supporting COSO – the cost of servers, bandwidth, disk space, security, backups, development and marketing– isn’t currently met by the subscriptions. Over time we hope pro account subscriptions will make CoSo self-sustaining, but until then we truly could use some financial support.

We set up this campaign with a goal of $250,000, which, if we meet, will ensure and secure https://counter.social another 3 years breathing space to develop new features, finally invest in some actual marketing, maintain what we've already built and grow our Pro accounts base to a self-sustaining level.

I've steered away from increasing Pro account subscription costs while all the time adding new features, veered away from monetizing via adding sponsored content or ads, and swerved away from traditional VC investments, to keep our platform as grassroots and uncorruptable as possible - and it's taken a lot of pride-swallowing to put out this call for crowd-sourced help.

With a little generosity and luck this should be the only time we ask for help.

We are building a revolution in responsible social media. Come on in. Congregate. Create. Collaborate. Contribute. Together, we’ve got this.
