MEDIA RELEASE: NO MORE TROLLS – TOPICTHREAD TAKES A STANCE
AUSTRALIA: A typical day on any of our current social media platforms involves the dark side of the web – the pitfalls of social networking. From unprovoked harassment to complete strangers trolling users for their own thrill, idle are the platforms that take this hand-in-hand, accepted as a part of their creations. Whether it be Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, or even now LinkedIn, Messenger and WhatsApp, genuine users continue to cop the barrage of these comments.
No more. Topicthread is the world’s newest social networking platform that has been formed with a zero-tolerance policy to protect its users.
What does this mean? If a user harasses, bullies, uses explicit content and/or language in vulgar and/or demeaning ways to attack another user, including troll behaviour, Topicthread takes a stance and either cancels that user’s membership entirely, or limits their account access for a designated period of time. Topicthread is here to put users first – it’s in their DNA.
Topicthread is a CHOICE – not a right. Unlike Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn and Instagram, among others, Topicthread is a CHOICE for users to make the switch – knowing they come first, their privacy, too – and that a genuine user experience is embedded in the creation of Topicthread.
After all, enough is enough and something had to be done about user safety and privacy. And all it takes is a simple switch.
