Launched less than a month ago, GAB social network intends to break the dogma of censorship on social media. With Facebook and Twitter already receiving criticism for not allowing freedom of speech on their platforms, this new social network is posed to allow you express your raw unbiased mind without fear of losing your account.
On Facebook and Twitter, moderators can ban users for posting controversial commentary especially on politics and other sensitive issues. For this reason, Gab founder, Andrew Torba feels these two popular social networks are unfair and want you to use Gab instead.
Aside the freedom to express your mind, this social network also promises users the privilege to monetize their contents. So this could be an opportunity to make cool cash for folks that post great contents on social media.
