Describing itself as the “answer to Facebook and Twitter censoring Christians, conservatives and liberty,” a new social-media platform called USA.Life will officially launch Wednesday.
Founder and CEO Steven Andrew said he decided to use his Silicon Valley tech leadership experience to launch the project after he saw Facebook block millions of people from getting his posts.
Andrew believes Facebook lied to Congress about being “a platform for all ideas,” since they restrict President Trump supporters, Christians and conservatives.
“Facebook blocks 99 percent of my reach, which means 5 million people are missing per month from my account alone,” he said.
Andrew has led multi-million dollar initiatives for Cisco, Better Homes and Gardens, Sega and Stanford.
USA.Life is necessary, he said, because “censorship affects elections, people’s lives and relationships.”
Users can share photos, updates, news, videos and messages, and join groups.
“People can connect with those most important to them, too,” he said.
Andrew set up a crowdfunding page to launch the project, saying USA.Life is for all who love America.
“We don’t have the billions of dollars Facebook, Google and Twitter have, so we need people who want freedom and privacy to contribute what they can,” he said.
Financial supporters receive a special reward, depending on how much they give, such as their name credited in the computer code with a keepsake PDF to print and other perks. For larger donations, individuals and organizations can get their name on the founders wall.
Andrew is also building a search engine, 1776Free.com.
Calling it “America’s new search engine,” he believes it will provide better results than Google.
Users will get “President Trump, conservative and Christian real news that Google hides,” he said.
“The USA.Life and 1776Free.com are needed to protect the free speech assured by the First Amendment. We will unite the nation,” Andrew said.
