Telepath has very simple rules: Be kind. Don’t be mean. No harassment, and no fake news.
Telepath requires users to use their real names, which makes the internet safer for activists and opinionists. It requires the use of a real mobile number as well. It’s pursuing a better goal in social networking — creating a hate speech-free platform where fake news can’t be distributed.
Why does Telepath Aim to build a hate-free and fake news free platform?
Stuffed with hate speech and abuse, moderation and anti-abuse instruments have been an afterthought they’re now attempting to cram in. Telepath is trying to avoid disinformation, hate speech.
Other new social networks have failed to gain broad traction.
Telepath is like the social media equivalent of a centrist’s hope for a return to “civil” political discourse. It’s as optimistic as it is deluded. Social media pitched itself as a sort of free-speech utopia. Instead, it became a magnet for hate speech. In the age of extreme polarization, that’s inescapable.
Telepath is an interest-based service intended to foster online conversations. The network will be invitation-only to start. Telepath is trying to instill strict content standards, including a rule against disinformation and hate speech.
How does Telepath work?
Telepath is a new social network platform. It aims to instill strict content standards from the beginning. This includes a rule against disinformation and hate speech. Telepath carefully examines ID and detains information in case of any misinformation.
Users must join the network with mobile phone numbers and names to get started. They must then find and follow other users. This is similar to platforms where users would connect with others and follow them.
Telepath is a social network that focuses on the art of conversation. It also has a strict code of rules users have to follow from the start.
