But first: why does the world need a new social media platform, anyway?
Especially in recent months, it feels harder to find quality, natural-minded info on your favorite social media platforms and websites. Algorithms and policies of privately owned social media companies we use every day are constantly changing. And these things affect our access and way of finding information, too.
Us natural mamas want these resources to be able to connect with others who share some of the same values of us – access to learning and research about natural-minded topics and discussions. Some times, it takes some digging. It’s hard to hear with all the other voices. Where do you find quality natural-minded information, anyway?
This includes a wide spectrum of things, some of the hallmarks being: breastfeeding, natural childbirth, birth support such as midwives or doulas, baby led weaning, cloth diapers, herbs and essential oils, medical freedom, and much more. Interest in these and many more natural mama topics is growing rapidly along with the natural and organic market in general.
But there are some places natural minded topics haven’t been as reliable, as Google, Pinterest, and Facebook algorithims are continually changing and unpredictable. Which is all to say, it’s hard to find natural-minded information if you are looking for it.
Enter a new social media platform, called Colleqtiv.
Colleqtiv is a new site that’s built around having a natural-minded community and a place to share openly, without fear of censorship.
If you don’t believe me in that your favorite social media site are censoring information, just check out this article.
Wouldn’t it be nice to not have to worry about ever-changing algorithms when sharing your content or favorite things, and have open access to information and research on your own terms?
Colleqtiv will be a hybrid social site that’s mainly focused on community and connection, but also on providing quality natural-minded information. The only one of it’s kind! There will be many communities where people can connect on topics you would like to learn more on: breastfeeding, healthy eating, homeschooling, homeopathy, babywearing, natural childbirth, essential oils, herbal remedies, what have you. In these communities you can also connect with influencers and follow their work. (P.S. I’m one of the early testers, and I’ll be leading one of these communities!)
Privacy is valued too: you are free to use your real name, screen name, or remain anonymous.
Learning is a way of life as a natural minded mama, and on Colleqtiv, this is no exception. Users can easily scroll through a “Learn” tab to find popular articles or search for topics… all giving quality, actually-natural websites that have more in-depth info. No more “greenwashing” out there – pure, natural ingredients straight from God’s creation, not a lab.
