Designed to promote healthy social media use, the Ruva app does not have ‘like’ buttons, doesn’t make use of never-ending timeline scrolling and doesn’t subject users to unpredictable presentations of posts. What’s more, this social media app doesn’t even have publicly accessible profiles, instead enabling people to add friends using private links to ensure that people are only connected with others who they know and trust.
This social media app also does not use advertisements, which ensures that users do not get reduced to marketing targets. Rather, the app aims to make money by selling digital customizations to users and potentially offering premium features for a fee.
Given increasing awareness around the hazards of social media use, the introduction of Ruva to the social media landscape is a welcome and timely move.
