Vero wants to socialize us | Labber.pl
Not so long ago, we wondered if and when Facebook would be replaced with a worthy alternative. According to eMarketer data, in 2017 the portal lost 2.8 million users under 25 in the United States alone. And as we know very well from history, many global trends start just overseas. It seems that Facebook is becoming passé in some circles. What does it mean?
Not much so far. However, when you look at the matter a little closer, this situation gives a clear sign for alternatives. One of them, the social app Vero, is gaining popularity in particular. The platform allows you to share books, music, photos, videos, and more with your friends. Does it remind you of something? This invention, however, differs from Facebook in several ideas that work in Vero’s favor. Unfortunately, already at the start of his “boom”, he experiences one to swallow and two huge slip-ups, which will be very difficult to forget.
First of all, the huge interest in the platform has not met with adequate server performance, which is why users report problems related to the operation of the application. The developers apologize and ask for patience. It seems that they are gifted with it, because the interest is still growing. On Monday, the download counter exceeded the magic number of 1,000,000.
Secondly, about the creators. The CEO of the platform – Ayman Hariri is a figure that evokes extreme emotions. He is accused of being involved in the high-profile case of the Oger company, which stopped paying its employees. We know nothing about the payments to the Vero team, but the headlines of the industry magazines are not indifferent to this fact.
So Vero’s terms of service are a huge joke and I deleted all my content and uninstalled it immediately.

We have updated both to clarify.
We appreciate your trust!

The platform’s PR department works effectively and resolves potential crisis issues relatively quickly. It is not yet clear how exactly it will be monetized, but the creators stipulate that we will not see any ads on it. Most likely, a subscription model will come into play. However, the homepage states that until payment details are announced, new users can enjoy a lifetime free account.
Unfortunately, I see one rather serious problem with it. I wanted to test it for you and share my initial impressions. Unfortunately, only two of my friends use it and none of them have shared anything yet… #Google+
