    Pros: 

    Simple, unique experience, private as in "f*cking private".

    Cons: 

    Something this good; and you feel the urge to be critical, but I have nothing so far.

    We're creating a community website for our customers at Zulu. This product gave us the independence we love, to accomplish things that's truely unique to us, while preserving the underlying principle of simpleness and privacy.

    Metin Emenullahi has used this product for one day.
  • Pros: 

    Don't know because I couldn't even test it.

    Cons: 

    Asking for credit card info upright

    It would be great if they let us try the platform first and then a month later ask for credit card info if we wanted to continue.

    I'm not putting my CC in before even trying the product.

The legend is back with new version after 13 years. 🎉 We worked really hard on this. Please upvote. Thanks to @emresokullu, @cokiyiya, Barun, and Chaitu.
Thanks @chrismessina! For a sample Grou.ps v2 network, check out https://gr.ps/soma_housing We will continue maintaining existing Grou.ps customers, and there's at least 6 months before we phase them out in favor of the new platform.
Congratulations @EmreSokullu and the team. Grou.ps has always been welcoming to the LGBTQ community. There's nothing new there. What's new is this modern design and the open source. Big win.
I should also note that Grou.ps v2 is actually a set of GraphJS widgets Put on top of a gorgeous Bootstrap theme. That makes it super easy for developers to (a) come up with new templates, look & feel (b) port the social functionality to other digital assets they may have, like a mobile app, WordPress blog or website (but Not cryptocurrencies LOL)
This looks interesting. More personal social networks are something I expect to gain traction after recent scandals/data leaks.
