Wikipedia 'founder of Facebook' platform from the founding partner of Wikipedia: WT: Social

Jimmy Wales, co-founder of Wikipedia, has set up a new social media platform to survive with members' donations: WT: Social.

Wales, the platform already has more than 160 thousand users, he said.

The new platform seen as a competitor to Facebook 'will not sell user data and ads instead of trying to survive with users' donations, he said.

Those who want to join the platform will be put on the waiting list first and will be asked to invite other users. Or, those who want to be a user can choose the paid membership option.

We: Social stated that it was a 'news-oriented' platform and that members could change 'misleading' titles.

Users will be able to see articles shared by members in their networks. You will see the newest article at the top, then the other articles towards the bottom with the algorithm set according to your interests.

Membership is £ 10 per month in the UK and £ 80 per year. 12 euros per month in Europe, 90 euros per year, 13 dollars per month in the United States, 100 dollars per year.

There are still denied access to Turkey in Wikipedia.

WT: Social's introductory message says:

"We'll make it possible for you to make your own choices, choose the content you want, change misleading headlines directly, or report issues with shares."

Jimmy Wales, in an interview with the Financial Times newspaper, preferred by large social networks 'advertising-driven business models' said that the problem.

With this model, Wales said, kazanan the highest winners are those who offer the lowest quality content '.

In 2017, Wales set up the Wikitribune news platform, which was donated to fight counterfeit news.

But in October 2018, the platform had to dismantle its team of professional journalists.

WT: Social is a separate entity from Wikipedia.

Social media consultant Zoe Cairns says the platform needs to increase its numbers as quickly as possible in order to stand up to its giant competitors.

Cairns, "Too much money should be poured. People are very accustomed to the free social media. Companies can pay for it, but people are accustomed to free access to news at the fingertips," he said.
