Hi MeWe/Sgrouples Friends and Champions,
Exciting times are upon us! From a great FORBES interview to sweet improvements on our mobile and desktop platforms, MeWe continues to rapidly prepare for its marketing launch. We are winning accolades as the “one to watch”, our CEO is speaking at important conferences, his HuffPost column is brimming, and MeWe servers are now offshore. Viva la Revolution! Here is your update:
The Privacy Revolution & MeWe in FORBES!
Recently, FORBES contributor writer Cheryl Conner interviewed MeWe Founder and CEO, Mark Weinstein. In the article, Conner also discusses the privacy stances of Tim Cook, CEO of Apple, and MeWe Advisor Tim Berners-Lee, Founder of the World Wide Web.
Mark is quoted several times, including this comment “From secret subject testing and facial recognition technology to data mining, curating your feeds, and tracking you at 1,205 sites, Facebook has entirely overstepped the boundaries of good taste, safety, and privacy.”
In the article Conner had a lot to say about the coming age of privacy as a unique selling proposition: “Marketers, are you listening? As privacy becomes a marketing proposition, the ability to protect and assure private use and greater user controls is a selling proposition with new viability. Consumers are learning which companies can offer the privacy and safety they seek. Companies that deliver will gain increasing opportunity to command large adoption and significant growth.”

Data Privacy Day, The FTC, MeWe on HUFFPO
Data Privacy Day was January 28 and on that day our CEO attended the DPD Town Hall in Mountain View, CA, where he had the opportunity to meet Terrell McSweeney, Commissioner, Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and Laura Berger (Sr. Attorney, Division of Privacy and Identity Protection, FTC). In November Mark met FTC Chairwoman Edith Ramirez at the Privacy Identity Innovation conference in Palo Alto, CA. MeWe appreciates the important work of the FTC in safeguarding the privacy rights of Americans. Their important work has included exposing the fraudulent privacy claims of SnapChat, PATH, and TRUSTe.
Coordinating with Data Privacy Day, Mark wrote the following two blogs on his popular HUFFPO Blog, simply click and enjoy!
MeWe’s Servers/Hosting Is Now 100% Offshore
Addressing concerns of web users the world over, MeWe has completed its initiative to relocate its server infrastructure outside of United States territories. This milestone was required by market demands of all international markets that MeWe is preparing to serve, from Europe to China. In the aftermath of the revelations about the extensive NSA spying, consumers in these markets are demanding that companies they patronize operate their servers outside of the USA.
MeWe is already leading the world with its next-generation communication features engineered under the guiding philosophy of “Privacy by Design” (PbD). Now the company stands proudly by its new server infrastructure as the next pinnacle in protecting its members and their data.
