A few years ago, when we talked about social media, Facebook is always a representative; with over 2.7 billion monthly active users as of 2020. However, due to the dispute regarding privacy concern, many of the people are deciding to change to other social media. Recently, Tesla CEO Elon Musk also asks people to leave Facebook. As an alternative to Facebook, people started to explore MeWe. Although many people are discussing MeWe, to entrepreneurs, whether it can replace Facebook, the answer still remains unknown.
MeWe is a social networking site that’s currently experiencing a surge in new user who do not want to use Twitter or Facebook anymore. It shapes itself as the “next-gen social network” and they focus on data privacy and ad-free experience.
As mentioned, there are over 2.7 billion monthly active users as of 2020 on Facebook while there are merely 14 million users on MeWe.

However, in recent months, its growth is amazing, with approximately 400,000 new users EVERY DAY. If the trend continues, it is extremely potent.
