Join us on our podcast each weekday for an interesting story, well told, from Charisma News. Listen at charismapodcastnetwork.com.
Is there a Christian alternative to Facebook? USA.Life social network is "the answer to Facebook censorship of Christians" and it "doesn't collect and sell your personal information," said Steven Andrew. He is the founder and a respected, Christian and technology leader.
Andrew started USA.Life to "fix the social media bias against Christians and Christian news stations."
With USA.Life, people and churches "share photos, updates, the gospel, news, videos and messages" and "connect with those who are important to them," Andrew said.
USA.Life is working to be "the premiere social network" of the nation and hopes to "replace Facebook and Twitter in popularity," he said.
Andrew gives details of the Christian Facebook alternative, a video overview and answers questions on a crowdfunding page he started to fund the project. "USA.Lifebegan in 2017 and can launch as soon as this summer, if we get the required funding now," he said.
He hears many positive comments. "Christians choose USA.Life, because of our pro-America algorithm," so they are not "censored by the anti-God algorithm of Facebook and Twitter," he said.
This Christian alternative to Facebook community is "growing quickly," because "people feel betrayed by other social media." Andrew understands, because he had over 70 million people blocked by Facebook. Those signing up now "get preferred usernames," he said. A person does not need to be in the country to join, which "helps families, friends and churches feel comfortable switching to USA.Life."
Andrew "loves America." What makes him unique is "he passionately believes, like our Founding Fathers, that God gives us liberty." He has extensive experience, including for Cisco, Stanford, Sega and Better Homes and Gardens, having led strategy or large-scale initiatives.
Some wonder, are Facebook and Twitter really against Christians? "Yes, because they restrict Christians sharing the truth and block God's Word and love," he said. Facebook and Twitter "often promote sin, communist censorship and other ways against the gospel."
To unite the nation, "USA.Life advances American values, including life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness," he said.
"Sharing the gospel freely could be lost forever without USA.Life. However, we can have a Christian internet if people, churches and businesses chip in $10, $100 or $1,000 toward the crowdfunding today. If people want to speak freely about Christianity, it is at USA.Life," Andrew said.
