Alternative Social Media

CodePen - Mr JeellyFish pure CSS animation

Most people hate the mainstream and want to look for an alternative. These (mostly) fantastic websites' demographics range from gamers who obsess over how to beat every level on the hardest difficulty without losing, to rabid conspiracy theorists who seek to uncover our deepest secrets—they're all out there. We try to maintain an accurate and up-to-date list of the best sites, but it's sometimes hard to keep up. So, here's the latest.

Gab Social - Created by Andrew Torba, Gab is a great alternative to Facebook and X that supports true free speech and it does not censor anything (ideas, beliefs, slurs, opinions, criticism, etc.) regardless if its popular or unpopular. It was created by a small tech company in Pennsylvania. The majority of users are from the alt-right who "trust the plan" to avoid arbitrary censorship from the mainstream right and left. It's decentralized and part of it's own network. Gab is open-source.
NOTE:  Gab can be slow, buggy, and glitchy at times. When Gab announces a spin-off product, don't expect it to be completed because most of their side projects are mostly half-assed made.

Gab TV - An alternative streaming video service to YouTube and Netflix, but it's very clunky and needs alot of work if it wants to look more professional. It needs more work and those emoji-style icons for categories need a redesign since they are terrible. These issues need to be fixed if they want content creators to take them seriously. You will find Alt-news, gamers, and many public domain movies to binge-watch.

Dissenter - There was an amazing and innovative comment section they created for the web called Dissenter, but it was quickly killed in favor of the unpopular Gab Trends to compete with the Drudge Report. The move caused backlash and it was heavily criticized. is now a website for the "Dissenter Browser." R.I.P. hype. It's "somewhat" alive.  It's dead. R.I.P.

Dissenter Browser (based on Chrome/Brave) is quick, responsive and doesn't have any bloatware and comes with the Dissenter comment section. But has problems updating, resulting in loosing your data such as passwords and bookmarks.  The browser is dead...

Gab Pay - An alternative to PayPal and Jack Dorsey's Square. An online payment and transaction system.

Streaming and Video

Odysee - New Hampshire-based, Odysee (formally is a decentralized video hosting website created by LBRY, a company that believes in free speech with a relaxing and user-friendly interface. The LBRY protocol is a decentralized file-sharing and payment network built using blockchain and BitTorrent technology. It allows anyone to create an account and register content that cannot be deleted by the company. LBRY uses BitTorrent technology to serve content without relying on their own servers by using peer-to-peer file-sharing. Creators can record video content to the LBRY blockchain, as well as other digital content including music, images, podcasts, and e-books. All LBRY projects are open source.

Shing - Keep the TV. Cut the cable. Watch independent content creators live and record streams via DVR. is a video platform. Whether you're filming with a camcorder, a smartphone, a tablet, or a webcam on a computer, Corder is the place for independent content creators like yourselves to upload and broadcast yourself to the world. It feels like the old YouTube and it's quite new.

Tired of the Demonetization of your videos and being censored on YouTube? England-based, Bitchute is a great alternative! A bit clunky at times, not perfect but this is a great substitute for your content creation or just want to browse videos! Instead of a centralized server, it's peer-to-peer!
Note: Bitchute has been focused on complying with the UK's hate speech censorship laws. Use caution on controversial topics.

Social is a social media site that's an alternative to X, and supports free speech. More stable and has fewer bugs than Gab. The majority of users are weirdos who like anime and cats. It uses a custom version of Mastodon called Soapbox.
Gleasonator is a Twitter-like site created by a weird vegan named Alex Gleason for the alt-left who like their own version of freedom called "safe spaces". It uses a custom version of Mastodon called Soapbox. NOTE: Not recommended for Classical Liberals or the Alt-right.
Spinster is a Twitter-like site created by Mary Kate Fain for radical feminists, Karens, and feminazis of the alt-left. It is a female utopia that women can only dream of. It uses a custom version of Mastodon called Soapbox. NOTE: Not recommended for Trads.

Connecticut-based, Minds is a good substitute for Facebook. Facebook has been censoring content, exploiting people's data, and other nonsense. Oh, and you can earn cryptocurrency too! Minds is also decentralized and open-source, unlike Facebook!

Voat is an alternative for Reddit, some calling it the successor of 4chan. Voat has been shut down due to lack of funding. 
Telegram is a cloud-based instant messaging and voice-over IP service based in England and Dubai. It was launched in 2013 by Russian brothers Nikolai and Pavel Durov. Users can send messages and exchange photos, videos, stickers, audio, and files of any type. Telegram's client-side code is open-source software but the source code for recent versions is not always immediately published, whereas its server-side code is closed-source and proprietary.
Please note: Telegram has been known for quietly censoring people. lets you write and publish text instantly. Write a note for yourself to read later. Create a standalone article you can quickly broadcast on social media — or publish a full blog. takes the distraction out of writing on other platforms and provides a calm place with your words. Then if you want the world to see them, it's as easy as sharing a link. Privacy is built into every corner — you don't even have to sign up to use it. Just open the app, write something, and publish. It's open-source. 


 Infogalactic is an Internet-based, free-content encyclopedia project that is a dynamic fork of Wikipedia and improves upon that online encyclopedia's model of openly editable content. Infogalactic's pages are interlinked in order to connect the user to related pages with additional information and are categorized in a variety of ways, including Relativity, Notability, and Reliability to allow the user to prioritize his personalized perspective. Infogalactic is written collaboratively by volunteers who contribute and edit without compensation. Anyone with Internet access can create and make changes to Infogalactic articles, except in limited cases where editing is restricted to prevent disruption or vandalism. Users can contribute anonymously, under a pseudonym, or with their real identity. Open-source. 

Search Engine

Presearch (PRE) is an open, decentralized search engine that rewards community members with Presearch Tokens for their usage, contribution to, and promotion of the platform. It looks more decentralized than DuckDuckGo.

Location unknown: Assuming United States?

DuckDuckGo logo.svgQuack! Hate Google, Yahoo, or Bing? DuckDuckGo (also abbreviated as DDG) is an internet search engine that emphasizes protecting searchers' privacy and avoiding the filter bubble of personalized search results. Based in Pennsylvania, DuckDuckGo distinguishes itself from other search engines by not profiling its users and by showing all users the same search results for a given search term. Some of DuckDuckGo's source code is free software hosted at GitHub under the Apache 2.0 License, but the core is proprietary. 

NOTE: Ever since their popularity grew, DuckDuckGo has been VERY suspicious recently (search results, marketing style) as the company keeps getting bigger. DuckDuckGo has rejected a white male for employment over a black lesbian female. This has raised concerns, resulting in a boycott.

Moo! Based in Zürich, Swisscows is a free search engine that does not enrich itself from the users' data with no tracking and no data collection. It lets you search the Internet without tracking, anonymously, and without search history. You can also view the URL results in the anonymous preview window. And no, cows are not included!

From Russia with love, Yandex Search (or Яндекс) is a search engine that provides alternative search results with a different perspective compared to the gatekeeping of Google, Yahoo, and Bing. Some of its code is open-source.


Tutanota is a German end-to-end encrypted email software and freemium-hosted secure email service. Its motto is"einfach.sicher.mailen" in German, meaning "". Its business model excludes earning money through advertisement. Instead, it relies solely on donations and premium subscriptions. The name "Tutanota" is derived from Latin and contains the words "tuta" and "nota" which means "secure message" Since 2014, the software has been open-sourced and can be reviewed by outsiders on GitHub.

ProtonMail is a Swiss end-to-end encrypted email service founded in 2013 in Geneva, it uses client-side encryption to protect email content and user data before they are sent to ProtonMail servers, unlike other common email providers such as Gmail and The service can be accessed through a webmail client, the Tor network, or dedicated iOS and Android apps. The source code for the back-end remains closed source. However, ProtonMail released the source code for the web interface under an open-source license. ProtonMail also open-sourced their mobile clients for iOS and Android, as well as the ProtonMail Bridge app. All of their source code can be found on GitHub.
NOTE: Despite its "no logs" policy, ProtonMail discloses an activist's IP address to authorities after a Swiss Court order


Whatfinger is a news aggregator that's an alternative to The Drudge Report. It's way more stable and less buggy than the rushed Gab Trends. "Whatfinger is a Drudge Alternative for the New Year The Drudge Report is the undisputed champion of news aggregate sites, and has been since the Clinton years. It’s iconic and people are comfortable with it. But it’s also filled with a lot of the cultural garbage that is irrelevant to many right-leaning readers, uses sensationalized headlines and includes just too much of the weird alien nonsense for those who are simply looking to stay on top of current events."

A great alternative to Reddit, is a free speech-based link and comment aggregation platform without censorship. The software is open-source.

Location: Unknown

Lemmy is an open-source, federated link aggregator similar to Reddit and built with Rust and it's fully open-source. Lemmy is similar to sites like Reddit,, or Hacker News: you subscribe to communities you're interested in, post links and discussions, and then vote and comment on them. Lemmy isn't just a Reddit alternative; it's a network of interconnected communities run by different people and organizations, all combining to create a single, personalized front page of your favorite news, articles, and memes. You can join or make your own server similar to Mastodon. The main servers like are mainly filled with leftists-wannabees and users have reported censorship on those main servers.
Location unknown: Possibly France? is a lightweight uncensored free speech alternative to the Reddit and Voat forums, democratically civilized by Graham's Debate Pyramid, no illegal transactions nor porn. Truth-seeking anti-corruption news is among the popular themes. It is based on the open-source Reddit code.

Features include: Posts, comments, voting, subscriptions, wikis, RSS feeds, night mode, IRC chat, no ads, no porn, no illegal transactions of weapons or drugs, a SaidIt Android app available at F-Drois or GooglePlay, 3 mobile modes and the normal web browser mode, an iOS Saidit app is coming soon, with future plans to decentralize on the Fediverse, IPFS, Holochain, ZeroNet, or something akin, and future plans for a sharded blockchain currency, and more developments daily. So far there hasn't been any censorship of speech but skeptics say otherwise.
The location is unknown, somewhere in the US.

Communities.WIN (also called Scored) 
Not much is known of what it is, assuming it's open-source and decentralized, is a Reddit alternative aimed at the Mainstream Right (conservatives) and the Alt-right. Default communities include General, AskWin, Funny, Technology, Animals, Sports, Gaming, DIY, Health, Positive, and Privacy. Illegal speech is banned obviously, but the only censorship of speech is politics, social issues, slurs, etc. Each community has its own rules and they are very strict to keep it afloat. Other.WIN Communities: TheDonald, WSBets, KotakuInAction, OmegaCanada, GavinMcInnes, ConsumeProduct, KotakuInAction2, WeekendGunnit, TuckerCarlson, GreatAwakening, IP2Always, Conspiracies, Meta, Ancaps, Guns, Christianity, Shithole, NoNewNormal, and MGTOW. (now called Invidious) is the best way to watch YouTube videos privately on the web without Google snooping around looking for our data. With YouTube starting to crack down on video downloaders, this Website has become all the more important. If a downloader you know of won't let you convert YouTube videos anymore, try to get 'em from here.

Also to note, you can also use the extension Tampermonkey and download scripts for it from GreasyFork called 'Local Youtube Downloader' that will fetch all of the youtube download links on the video page or there is also 'Youtube to Invidious' that will replace all youtube players on websites to invidious and redirect youtube links back to it.

Not recommended, but use extreme caution. 
In this list, they are alternative tech but sometimes act the same as their mainstream competitors. Remember, Humans can lie.

California-based, DLive is a good alternative to Twitch if you're tired of thots and simps. It uses blockchain for its servers and donation systems.

Please Note: Many people from the Dissenter comments have red-flagged & said it doesn't support free speech and banned Alex Jones. Be careful! Not Open-Source. 

Utreon is a YouTube alternative that claims to be for free speech and doesn't censor anyone of their political views, including controversial topics. 
They got creators from gamers to anime lovers (and other topics such as news). However, they have a caste system in which they ban of group of "Pariahsas", social outcasts of their caste system, very short list of "organizations who are explicitly forbidden participation, representation, or promotion of any sort on Utreon because they tolerate (or even encourage) violent bigotry and/or domestic terrorism from their membership. Individuals are likewise forbidden if their public persona is strongly associated with such an organization". The current list of pariah organizations includes the KKK, Antifa, and neo-Nazis. But the problem is they are acting hypocritical as they haven't banned other terrorist organizations and race-baiting hate groups such as BLM, Black Panthers, ADL, SPLC, or ISIS. So, it's either biased or haven't done it yet. The site looks cool and it's fairly new, 80% better than Youtube with 85% free speech, but we would recommend extreme caution. 

Rumble is an online video platform headquartered in Toronto, Ontario. It's an alternative to YouTube.
When Former U.S. President Donald Trump officially joined Rumble, they promised him and his team to censor any criticism of Israel and Jewish culture, making it a concern for free speech advocates. Its technology is not open-source. Be cautious, use at your own risk!

If there are new alternative tech and social media they will be updated and listed.

UPDATE: 6/27/2020 Parler has been removed from the list due to its unfair censorship and corporate closed-source. It's highly NOT recommended, AVOID Parler.

UPDATE: 5/10/2021 Voat's website and servers were shut down due to lack of funding. 

UPDATE: 12/21/21 Donald Trump's TRUTH Social is not recommended. Due to heavy concerns over bots, trolls, traps, privacy issues such as data tracking, geographic restriction, and partnership with Rumble. Donald Trump is known for his censorship of any criticism of Israel, Jewish individuals, and their culture.

UPDATE: Startpage and Qwant has been removed.


Recommend checking this site out what big corporations to boycott

If you have a site you'd like to add to this list, the name of the site, the URL, a one-sentence description, (and a small bribe) to the comment section. Sites will be posted at the sole discretion of the Web Monkey. No shirt, no shoes, no exception. 😜
