Our Manifesto

Your social network is owned by advertisers.

Every post you share, every friend you make and every link you follow is tracked, recorded and converted into data. Advertisers buy your data so they can show you more ads. You are the product that’s bought and sold.

We believe there is a better way. We believe in audacity. We believe in beauty, simplicity and transparency. We believe that the people who make things and the people who use them should be in partnership.

We believe a social network can be a tool for empowerment. Not a tool to deceive, coerce and manipulate — but a place to connect, create and celebrate life.

You are not a product.

These are products ►


Ello is a simple, beautiful, and ad-free social network created by a small group of artists and designers.

Sometimes we create special products.  You may choose to support Ello by paying a small amount of money to own that product. Some of that money goes to Ello and some of that money goes to the artist we commissioned to create that product.  

By choosing to buy a special product now and then for a small amount of money you support us, one of our artists, and help us make Ello better and better.

For this, we thank you.
