In the midst of Capitol Hill’s scrutiny of social media giants, a beacon of hope emerges: WeAre8, a groundbreaking platform dedicated to empowering communities while reshaping the digital landscape. In a bold departure from the norm, WeAre8 aims to revolutionize the social media experience by putting people first and sharing the wealth.
Founded by tech visionary Sue Fennessy, the mastermind behind NY-based media data powerhouse Standard Media Index, WeAre8 stands out as a beacon of positivity in a sea of algorithm-driven chaos. Unlike its corporate counterparts, WeAre8 prioritizes user well-being and community enrichment over profits, employing innovative technology to create a safe and rewarding environment for its members.
At the heart of WeAre8’s mission lies its transformative economic model, which redistributes a staggering 60% of ad revenue back to users, charities, creators, and planet-saving projects for every ad viewed on the platform. Instead of bombarding users with intrusive advertisements, WeAre8 respects their time and values their engagement by depositing micro-payments into their centralized wallets. This user-centric approach not only empowers individuals to make a tangible impact but also fosters a sense of ownership and camaraderie within the community.
Fennessy’s vision for WeAre8 is simple yet profound: to inspire users to reclaim their time and channel it towards meaningful pursuits. With a commitment to delivering just “eight minutes a day” of engaging content, WeAre8 encourages users to reconnect with friends, explore new interests, and contribute to causes they care about—all while earning a fair share of the ad revenue pie.
“WeAre8’s Citizens,” as Fennessy affectionately refers to her user base, are united by a common desire to effect positive change and make a difference in the world. By focusing on getting “a dollar a day” into every citizen’s wallet, WeAre8 empowers individuals to take control of their economic destiny while fostering a sense of solidarity and purpose.
Reflecting on the inspiration behind WeAre8, Fennessy recalls a pivotal moment in New York City six years ago, when she was confronted with the harsh reality of economic inequality. Moved by the staggering statistic that 37% of Americans couldn’t afford a $400 emergency expense, Fennessy recognized the urgent need to reimagine the economic models that shape our society.
“WeAre8 is more than just a social platform; it’s a movement to reclaim our economic value and reshape the fabric of our society,” Fennessy explains. “By harnessing the power of technology and community, we can build a future where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.”
In a gesture of generosity, WeAre8 is offering users the chance to claim a share of $20,000 in bonus wallet drops throughout the month of February. Whether users choose to keep the funds for themselves or pay them forward to support charitable causes and community initiatives, WeAre8 remains steadfast in its commitment to driving positive change.
As Fennessy aptly sums up, “When platforms control people with technology, they strip away their freedom and divide our society. It’s time to reclaim our identity, our economic value, and unite in a way that truly transforms everything.”
In a world dominated by algorithms and corporate interests, WeAre8 offers a glimmer of hope—a digital oasis where users are valued, empowered, and inspired to make a difference, one click at a time.
