Post is a new social medium from ex-Waze CEO Noam Bardin. The social medium says it wants to provide a platform for civilized conversations and ‘real’ people.
Now that Twitter is in dire straits, ex-Waze CEO Noam Bardin sees his chance to launch Post. Bardin does not see Post as a direct successor to the current Twitter. Post should offer a platform to real people who are looking for a place for civilized conversations. It is striking that the platform explicitly states at the introduction that it has no need for extremists and wants to focus on more ‘moderate’ voices.
At the same time, Post states that it attaches great importance to freedom of expression and that there is no room for censorship. Governments that want to apply censorship have not come to the right place at Post; according to the brand new social medium, censorship “from any government” will be challenged. As far as Post is concerned, everyone has the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. Bardin says this motto is central to Post and that people who don’t agree with it “don’t fit in” on the social medium.
Waiting List for Mail
Those who want to use Post will have to be patient for now. The platform works with a waiting list for new users. The counter of this list now stands at 124,000; it is unknown if users who are admitted are subtracted from this number. It is also currently unknown how quickly the list will be completed.
In terms of operation, Post is very similar to Twitter. People can post, like, share and comment on posts. In the future it should also be possible to buy news items via Post. The social medium would like to offer an experience that is equivalent to Blendle, which was active in the Netherlands for a long time. Via that app you could buy and read individual news articles from different publishers, without being forwarded to the publisher.
Strict content moderation
It is also clear that Post, unlike Musk’s Twitter, will adhere to a strict form of content moderation. Post employs employees for this, but it will use the help of the community to enforce the rules even more effectively. It is unknown how the community can contribute to the enforcement of rules on Post.
