Skip to comments.Social Media Platform Gab to Silicon Valley: ‘You Will Be Replaced’
Posted on 09/21/2018 7:37:21 AM PDT by Red Badger
Free speech social media platform Gab.ai has rebranded as Gab.com and aims to become a tech hub for liberty-minded tech startups that wish to avoid connections to leftist Silicon Valley groups.
Gab.ai, the free-speech themed social media platform founded by CEO Andrew Torba, has long aimed to act as an alternative to sites such as Twitter and Facebook. Now Gab is rebranding as Gab.com and aims to provide an infrastructure for tech developers that wish to grow their own platforms and products without being forced to go through leftist companies based in Silicon Valley.
Andrew Torba spoke to Breitbart News about the websites rebranding stating: This week Gab announced a rebrand to Gab.com in order to continue our mission of defending free expression and individual liberty online for all people. Torba continued: Gab.com is the next chapter in our story. We are maturing as a platform, as a brand, and as a community of people from around the world. We seek to free humanity from the chains of Silicon Valleys data silo, psychological manipulation, censorship, and ideological echo chambers.
Torba stated that the platform wants to create a platform where all ideas can be expressed, saying: We are in the process of building out free speech-friendly infrastructure so that one day, other liberty-minded tech startups can build using our tools and avoid any connection at all to Silicon Valley.
Discussing Gabs growth worldwide and how it can act as an open communications platform when other social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter censor their uses, Torba stated: Gab has over 670,000 users from around the world and we are adding 100,000+ new users every month. Our goal is to make Gab the home of free speech online.

I’ve tried to use Gab. I don’t get it.
I’ve been on GAB.AI for awhile now.
They’ve been flooded by former conservative twitter users that have been either banned or censored for being conservatives.
All it would take to put the hurts on twitter would be for the POTUS to move his twitter account over to GAB.
Once these libs realize that maybe they’re not the “only show in town”, maybe they’ll smarten up....but I doubt it. Liberal insanity knows no bounds...NONE.
Gab’s hook is that there is no advertising and they are moving more toward a subscription service. A year ago, they hinted that they expected to be ‘blackballed via the banks, etc....so they were moving toward some cryptocurrency deal. I would suggest that come the summer of 2020, with the election business in full swing and absolute negativity about Facebook...Gab will be the alternate platform to use.
I told you people. There’s no need for government intervention. Free markets always win.
Got me smiling. Agree - let it be so!
Good post! You beat me by 3 minutes. Thanks for posting, I’ll get the Mods to delete my post.
Twitter is going down!
I hope President Trump moves over there.
Stole his business idea
Stole all the shares from his BEST friend
Secretly sold users data
Stated in a confidential email to a friend that people who trust him are "dumb-f*cks".
Married in the community proprety state of California, the very day AFTER he took Facebook public.
Requested nude photos of users to protect them against the risk of revenge porn.
Secretly tried to get hospitals to release vast stores of patient data so I can help cure diseases.
Initially pursued total rights ownership of images uploaded to FB; if you'd been photoed as a happy youth with, say, a can of Coors then later got really famous, Zuck could be paid by Coors for zero work and YOUR old photo in a new ad while you, the centerpiece of the ad, would get NOTHING. Struck down after lengthy legal battles.
De-platformed numerous Conservatives because he didn't agree with their views, couldn't define hate-speech when asked by Congress.
Secretly requested banks give him his users' financial data, including transactions, so my users can check their balances on my site."
Digitally permitted his housing advertisers to filter out customers whose search histories were strongly associated with terms like "handicapped" , "mobility scooter" and "guidedog".
Admonished that people "build bridges instead of walls", all while building walls around his Palo Alto homes and around the huge Kauai Estate he bought and then threw the Hawaiians off of.
Established a "trustwothiness index" for ALL his facebook users while disclosing it to none of them.
Altered FB algorithms to flag content from conservative publications as spam.
Revered Augustus Caesar, leader of Rome who assured 200 years of peace via harsh rule, possibly arranging the execution of his own grandson. On a wedding anniversary trip to Rome, Zuck gushed so effusively over sculptures and monuments dedicated to Augustus that his wife joked that three people, not two, were on their trip.
For years, Zuck traditionally closed high-level Facebook executive meetings by shouting, "DOMINATION..!", perhaps half-jokingly.
This the type of post we should be seeing on FR, rather than he usual flood of barf statements from the worst leftists in the nation.
Yep. On my alt-media list, look at the percentage of commentators and news sources who have backup accounts on alt-tech sites like BitChute and Gab.
He doesn’t even look human.....................
I absolutely love Gab.
Because of freedom...?
There is that, but things have to come a point where there are very many conservatives over there. Every time I return, there seem to be more users.
I would say it’s almost a Twitter, but conservative.
I get amazing links from Gab that otherwise I might not see here at FR.
I would admonish ALL HERE to join.
(ps - I have no Facebook account, richly loathe Zuckerberg, etc.)
I just checked it out. Going to try it fir a while and see if I can use it right or not. After being here since the Days of the Great Hanging Chad Im so used to FR it is difficult for Me to use other Sites.
Well, all the rah-rah convinced me, so I attempted to join. Upon completing the form and clicking the button to join, nothing happened. That screen just sat there. It won’t let me log on, nor will it let me re-register; name and password “TAKEN”. And no means of talking to anyone there to solve the problem.
Same thing happened to me!......................
The more you tighten your grip, Zuckerberg, the more social media users will slip through your fingers.
Hat tip to Princess Lea.
Not ready for prime time.
You and me both. Most non intuitive platform Ive ever seen.
