“言论自由”的社交网络在选举后用户暴涨

“Free speech” social networks claim post-election surge

另类社交网络正在兴起。Parler和MeWe,这两款自称是Twitter和Facebook“言论自由”替代品的应用,自大选以来已经增加了数百万新用户,目前占据苹果应用商店前三名的两个位置。

Alternative social networks are having a moment. Parler and MeWe, apps that bill themselves as “free speech” alternatives to Twitter and Facebook, have added millions of new users since the election and currently hold two of the top three positions in Apple’s App Store.

这两款应用都不是新应用,但在大选后的一周内,这两款应用的用户都出现了大幅上升。在Facebook和Twitter正采取积极措施减缓选举错误信息的时候,Parler和MeWe是主流社交媒体的无需事实核查的替代品。

Neither app is new, but both have seen a massive uptick in users in the week following the election. At a time when Facebook and Twitter are taking aggressive steps to slow down election misinformation, Parler and MeWe are fact check-free alternatives to mainstream social media.

Parler最近一直是保守派反科技斗士的最爱。特德·克鲁兹再次登上应用商店排行榜。应用分析公司sensortower提供的数据显示,这是目前最热门的免费应用,自11月3日以来,下载量已超过200万次。该应用程序的创始人约翰•马特兹(johnmatze)表示,自上周五以来,该服务的注册人数已达450万。

Parler, which has been a recent favorite of conservative anti-tech crusaders like Sen.Ted Cruz, has once again climbed the App Store charts. It’s currently the top free app, and has been downloaded more than 2 million times since November 3, according to data provided by app analytics firm Sensor Tower. The app’s founder, John Matze, said the service has seen 4.5 million sign-ups since Friday.
