MeWe launches “MeWe’s”, the first dual-camera video
As people across the globe are staying indoors, self-quarantined due to Coronavirus, MeWe, the rapidly growing Facebook competitor, launches MeWe’s – the first dual-camera videos available on any social network. MeWe’s are the perfect way for people to stay virtually connected in a fun and safe way with their friends and family.
MeWe’s allow members to simultaneously film and share videos using their phone’s inward and outward-facing cameras. With MeWe’s, your phone is recording you talking (“Me”), and what you’re talking about at the same time (“We”) – creating a unique double-view video. MeWe’s can be created by members with iPhone XR or newer and viewed on all platforms such as desktop, Android, and iOS.
MeWe also announces the launch of MeWe Stories, allowing members to create slideshow stories of their day that disappear after 24 hours. In tandem with MeWe’s, members now have a brand-new way to create and share stories not possible on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitter, TikTok, or any other social network. MeWe Stories can be created on iOS and Android and viewed on all platforms.
“MeWe is a force for good in the world. In a time when people are isolating and ‘social distancing’, MeWe’s bring us together in a fun and uplifting new way. MeWe members enjoy cutting-edge features with friends and family, under the umbrella of trust, control, and data privacy,” says Founder and CEO Mark Weinstein.
The ad-free social network has over seven million members and expects up to 40 million by the end of 2020. MeWe is free for members because privacy is not something anyone should have to pay for. The company has a freemium revenue model and also receives revenue from its enterprise collaboration platform, MeWePRO, a Slack competitor.
MeWe’s Advisory Board includes Sir Tim Berners-Lee, inventor of the Web. MeWe’s groundbreaking “Privacy Bill of Rights” guarantees members have total control of their data, newsfeeds and privacy. MeWe safeguards members with a strong Terms of Service.
MeWe was named a 2020 Most Innovative Social Media Company by Fast Company, a 2019 Best Entrepreneurial Company in America by Entrepreneur Magazine, and Start-Up of the Year Finalist at SXSW.
