AnteSocial is the first democratic social media ecosystem where you as a user have a say in the future of the platform and participate in its profits. Up to 96% or all profit flows directly back to the users who help make it successful. The first social media platform enabling you to build real social value, your own individual social stock price that increases based on your activity and influence on the platform. The higher your social value the more you can earn and the more valuable you are to other user who may wish to invest in your success.
AnteSocial works very similarly to other social platforms you may be familiar with. You can post pictures and videos, message friends, like and comment on posts, watch other users and see who is watching you. There are a few key features that separate us from the rest.
A Social Democracy – Once our core features are complete users will have a chance to vote on any system changes that are not bug fixes or required by law. You as a user will also be able to suggest new features and lobby other users to have them put up for a vote, If enough users agree, your suggestion will be implemented.
The Timeline – This is where you go to see what all your friends are up to check out and post photos, videos or stories. Comment on a post like and not like… yup not like…because let’s face it some things just aren’t cool.. Check out top posts, search tags and see who just anted up and joined the platform, our way of saying check out new users..
Watching and Watchers – You can follow friends and people you like by watching them, this adds them to your feed you can also click on watchers to see who’s got their eye on you!
Your Social Stock Price (SSP) – You can find your social stock price on your profile page along with a graph of your performance over time. This can also be seen next to your posts and in other areas of the network. Your SSP is calculated by a number of factors and it is part of our secret sauce, but primarily based on how you interact with and use the platform.
The Market Place – Ads on AnteSocial are completely optional and controlled by you. You decide if you want to see ads or not and you can change this any time in your account settings. We will never serve you ads, disrupt or limit access to your posts or to your followers. How much or how little people see of you is entirely up to you. The Ad marketplace is an area where if you can choose to connect with brands and advertisers you like, if you see a product or brand you think is cool you can share it to your feed. Rest assured we never share your data with advertisers, and any ads placed outside of the Marketplace are there because someone in your community thought it was worth it!
Messaging – Messages on AnteSocial are done through Direct Connections, anyone you know personally would be someone you would want to Direct Connect. Once you are connected, messaging them is easy. However, if someone you are not Directly Connected with wants to message you, they will first have to get your permission through a Direct Connection Request. We strongly recommend to users that they only use this for people they actually know and are likely to have the Direct Connect request accepted. Having too many denials can negatively impact your Social Value. You can manage your Direct Connections in the main menu.
Trading and the SSE (Social Stock Exchange) – You may have noticed the Trade button on your profile page. This feature is where it gets really exciting! Once you have enough history interacting on the platform this feature will be unlocked and you will be able to go public, offering up to 49% of your social stock for other users to invest. Users can now invest and trade in your Social Value as they would a company listed on the NYSE. Here’s how it works. You choose the number of shares you want to offer, between 1 and 49, if your current Social value is $100 then each share will be sold at that price. You can also choose to split your shares, making one share into 100 shares and selling it for $1 the choice is yours. Once you sell, the earnings you make on the system will be automatically split with your shareholders at the time of that transaction, so if you sold 10% of your stock, for each dollar you keep $.90 and your shareholders would split the rest. Shareholders can freely buy and sell your stock in the SSE (Social Stock Exchange) potentially further increasing your Social Value.
The Bank – You earn real money on AnteSocial. But in the system, transactions are made with AnteCoin. Every day, based on your activity we will transfer a share of our proceeds into your Bank in the form of AnteCoin. AnteCoin is backed by the US dollar and can be sold back to us for US dollars to be deposited to the account of your choosing at any time. There is no tax liability for the AnteCoin in your account, however, you will be responsible for reporting any gains to the appropriate tax authorities from the AnteCoin you sell back. Currently each AnteCoin is worth $.01. The Bank also features a complete ledger of all your transactions. AnteCoin is not a currency that is traded like Bitcoin and not susceptible to wild market swings and loss of value.
Transfer AnteCoin– Want to share the wealth with a friend or pay them back for buying dinner… ? Just send them some AnteCoin, Simply go to their profile and click on the three red dots in the upper right corner and follow the instructions… Don’t have enough Coin? You can buy coin to send to a friend in the “Bank” on the main menu.
