As we approach the delivery of the release version of our site and promote our NFT project and IRL meetup event FloteFest, we’re getting some attention from new people who may be asking “What is Flote?”
Put simply, Flote is a freedom focused, cryptocurrency friendly social media site. At Flote we believe that individual adults have the power both to express themselves freely and to decide on their own what people and ideas they want to associate with. We believe in voluntary interaction and in the power of free, fair and unfettered trade to uplift everyone. We believe that free people are better people and that we have the power to build the world we want to live in by our choices and actions.
Because it’s become increasingly difficult to have this kind of experience on the larger, corporate owned social media sites, we decided to build our own. As our founder Kingsley says, “Free speech plus free markets equals free people.” At Flote we don’t just believe people have the “right” to be free but that they have the power to be… and the responsibility as well.
FLOTE IS DIFFERENT
On Flote you will find that our members engage with each other around a wide variety of topics… some of it is political in nature, of course, but we are not focused on or affiliated with any particular party or point of view. If you’re open to communicating freely and honestly and to treating each other with respect (and simply ignoring the inevitable encounters with people who don’t) you will be welcomed. In addition to posts about politics and current events you’ll also find discussions about less controversial but important topics like homesteading, gardening, baking, child rearing, local community building and so much more… and of course you’ll be free to speak about whatever it is that motivates you.
At Flote we encourage our members to engage with each other and share their values both online and in the real world as well so that we can all benefit from each others’ strengths and experiences. You’ll find that many of our members have their own businesses and produce goods and services you can use and enjoy such as custom cookies and cakes, hand made knives and metal goods, artworks, t-shirts and many others… and that there’s room for your unique products and services in our community as well.
We’ve built Flote for people who want to be free… free to express themselves, to create, to organize, and to come together and build things for themselves and for each other. In the future we’ll be adding even more features and capabilities to make this possible such as site customization tools, group creation, a truly open marketplace, options for gathering in virtual spaces and even more IRL events. We’ve got a tremendous roadmap full of great ideas and we’re always listening to our members to find out what types of features they’re looking for.
TIME FOR CHANGE
The world is constantly changing and as opportunities close in some areas, they open up in others. Perhaps you’ve found yourself shamed, censored or shut down on the corporate social media sites. Maybe things you thought were perfectly acceptable suddenly became forbidden and maybe you’ve lost friends, family or economic opportunities because you found yourself on the wrong side of that shifting line. Perhaps you’ve got content and an audience still out there on one of those sites and you’re feeling the sand moving beneath your feet.
If you’re looking for a new home where you don’t have to worry about censorship or social shaming… a home where you can be yourself, express yourself and find perhaps a smaller but far more tight-knit and engaging community of people who will share your values and support your business, we’d like to invite you to join us at Flote.
This is an exciting time for Flote and the Flote community and we’d love for you to be a part of it. Visit us at JoinFlote.com and experience what it’s like to be yourself and engage with friends and strangers honestly and openly again. It’s time to be free.
