Facebook is one of the most popular social media networking site in this world, but there is a lot of violent and nudity stuff there. So, Sin free Facebook called FaceGloria is launched in Brazil by Evangelical Christians. The new social networking site “FaceGloria” is created by web designer Atilla Barros and three co-founders while working in the Mayor’s office in Ferraz de Vasconcelos, near Sao Paulo.
Barros told AFP “On Facebook you see a lot of violence and pornography. That’s why we thought of creating a network where we could talk about God, love and to spread His word.”
Acir dos Santos, the Mayor of Ferraz de Vasconcelos has invested £10,000 in the startup and hopes that soon FaceGloria will reach out to the maximum number of people. He said “Our network is global. We have bought the Faceglory domain in English and in all possible languages. We want to take on Facebook and Twitter here and everywhere.”
What are restrictions while using Sin Free Facebook called FaceGloria?
There are certain restrictions imposed while using Sin Free Facebook which prohibits any sort of erotic content, any violent content and there is also a list of 600 forbidden words. The site bans any sort of reference to gay relationships since Evangelical Christians consider it as sinful. Facegloria users are prompted to click the ‘Amen’ button to show their appreciation to any post, instead of ‘like’ button as on Facebook.
FaceGloria claims that more than 100,000 members have signed up to the social network in its first month. To catch up with its rival Facebook having more than 1billion active users per month, they have to do much more.
Sin Free Facebook called FaceGloria is launched in Brazil by Evangelical Christians is currently available in Portuguese only; other languages will be added soon along with a mobile app. The company officials hope that they will get to 10 million users in Brazil within two years. Brazil is home to the world’s largest Catholic population, but in the past few years it has undergone a significant shift towards Christian evangelism.
