PRESS RELEASE: TWO STEPS FORWARD, ONE STEP BACK

Please see the (off-format) Press Release to follow for your consideration:

EUROPE: GDPR compliance is nearing a year in full swing with data harvesting in the past, but have you tried to download your data (yet) and if so, it is as transparent as you would like? At Topicthread we’ve ensured our European users don’t face the same roadblocks or hidden terms largely associated with Facebook, Google or similar.

UNITED STATES: Not privy to the rights of their European neighbours, if you’re a social media user here, there’s a very good chance that what’s been put in front of you isn’t authentic — algorithms let you know what you want to see and make sure you see it. There are no algorithms on Topicthread to ensure users see exactly what they’ve signed up for. This includes no advertising.

AUSTRALIA: Two steps forward, one step back, often how it seems when it comes to social media use and its uptake. Yet, tucked away on the Gold Coast and built for market disruption is Topicthread. GDPR rules don’t apply here, and algorithms are still at work — but, not on Topicthread. Authenticity has arrived. It doesn’t take a Silicon Valley crowd to overhaul the social networks or media giants of the now — rather, a genuine interest in user safety, security and privacy. With a simple click, a Gold Coast local made this a reality.

Whether you’re based in Europe, the United States, or in Australia, a solution has arrived. Topicthread allows users to delete “all” of their data and leave no trace. And you don’t even need their permission. The question that arrives is, do you care enough about your own data, and how it’s being used against you, to do anything about it?
