Ratings and Reviews
I have been following Dave Rubin for a long time. I am amazed at this tech platform he has created. You can join a community or start your own. And although most people in these communities are like minded there is civil discourse when people disagree on certain things. It’s not the dumpster fire of the big tech platforms. I can talk politics or vent bout my day. I can post a picture of my dog or show my talents. And come on it’s Dave! His positivity keeps me going. Thank you sir for this revolutionary idea! 🙌🏻❤️
Good alternative, lots $$$ to support just a few
Overall the concept and app are good. It’s a nice alternative to the oligarch social media. However, in the app it is not easy to find new communities by interest or topic. Also, subscribing to more than just a few communities with more than just a few people adds up very quickly. Am I going to pay $50 per month to subscribe to 8-9 communities? No. Subscribing at $5-8 per legitimate, good-sized community is too much. Or, to make it affordable, you have to just pick one or two but then the usefulness of the app diminishes.
The Nuanced Future of Social Media
The app is really solid and functions very well, but, beyond the tech, it’s the concept itself that really brings it home. Locals offers a new, better path forward for social media. It allows creators, not big tech, to have the power over their platforms and not worry about creeping censorship that other platforms are participating in. I strongly recommend.
