Christians are getting their own social media platform,as FaceGloria, the sin-free Facebook, hits the internet.
This new platform will offer Christians a place on the internet where that will be free of sin and blasphemy and that will praise the Lord in its posts.
The revolutionary platform has been developed in Brazil and it has started out as a national-wide project, but due to the fact that FaceGloria has had a tremendously successful debut locally, its makers are now aiming to take over the world, by developing a version of FaceGloria that is translated into English.
The platform offers many of the features that are provided by most social media websites and apps, such as posting messages, photos and videos. However, FaceGloria has an extensive body of work that focuses on filtering the information that gets put up on the site, so that it does not break the laws of God.
There is no nudity on Facegloria, no violence and no blasphemy, so that Christians can fill their day with information that is in line with God’s rules. Here, the users can log in and talk about the miracles that they witness every single day with those who want to fill themselves with the grace of God.
FaceGloria has gained 100,000 users in Brazil in its first month, thus assuring the developers that they have created something powerful, that the people respond to. Furthermore, they are actually expecting even greater numbers next month, since they have turned the Christian Facebook into an app as well.
Instead of Liking posts, as it is on Facebook, FaceGloria users can go Christian all the way and click on the Amen button if they like a post. This is probably the most symbolic feature of the platform, but it seems that Brazilians are embracing it and fast.
This however is in line with 99% of Brazilian people who have declared that they believe in either God or some other kind of divinity. It remains to be seen if the English version of FaceGloria will be able to take over the Christian world, but the concept shows great promise among those who want to steer clear of sinful social media content.
Unfortunately, this only includes heterosexual people, as homosexuals, lesbians and transsexuals are regarded as sinful and therefore, cannot be part of the community. The developers justify their rules regarding LGBT related content and users through the fact that such “behavior” is sinful.
