Social Strata Launches Facebook Groups Alternative
By: Social Strata
CMO Rosemary O'Neill said, "It was time for an independent alternative to some of the big tech social group spaces. People are tired of personal data exchanged for a "free" service, shady ad metrics, unwritten content moderation rules, shutdowns with no recourse, zero customer support (you're not the customer). "
The new Crowdstack is priced so that small clubs and families can use a free plan (up to 20 members and 2 channels), with higher plans for larger groups ($99/yr for up to 500 members and 5 channels or $199/yr for unlimited members and 30 channels). For new signups, all features are included for the first 7 days.
Key features include public and private channels for posting, direct messaging, and member directory. Admins and moderators can set up content moderation via automation rules, feature specific posts, customize themes, and set up custom profile fields. Members can easily log in to Crowdstack using integrated Crowdstack ID or social credentials.
Crowdstack is an ideal solution for creators like podcasters or YouTubers, nonprofit organizations, and others who want to communicate with their audience and grow a community in a space they control.
