In recent weeks many users are looking social network alternativi, especially to escape from Twitter. And if there are so many interesting possibilities, it seems that most of the users prefer Hive Social: here’s how to use this new platform.

Elon Musk recently readmitted several banned users by doing a poll on Twitter, quoting the Latin proverb “vox populi, vox dei”. The voice of the people also seems to have elected Hive Social as the best alternative to Twitter.

If Mastodon, with its decentralized servers, seems complicated for newbies, Hive social allows you to post images and texts with no character limit. It already has the editing function that Twitter only offers for a fee, and even allows you to customize colors and songs on your profile. And even if the influx of users these days has created some problems for the servers, managed by a still small number of engineers, it seems that it could soon grow.

How to register an account

If you want to start social media, you must first download the mobile app: There is currently no desktop version. And the one for Android is still in the testing phase, so you may have a few more problems than those with an iPhone.
