Ghanaian developers to unveil Christian social network 'free of sins'


Most people and just about everyone is on social media, but not all are loving it, it turns out. Some are drowning in overshared obscene content, being contacted by strange and ‘unholy’ individuals around the world, much to their hating.

But as BBC reports, a Ghanaian Christian group is to launch a “holy” social network alternative to Facebook which will be free of “un-Christian” content.

“Social networks these days are filled with nude content and violence,” the group LoveRealm said in a statement to BBC.

“The site will be launched on 9 January and will ensure a holy social network experience by censoring and removing “un-Christian content,” its CEO Yaw Ansong Jnr told the BBC.

BBC further writes that hundreds of Christians are being invited to use the app in a pre-launch event at the Pentecost Convention Center in the capital, Accra, to enable them make inputs and accommodate necessary modifications, the statement added.

Founders of the site hope that it will allow those struggling to keep the Christian faith to share weaknesses and confess their sins to one another.
