Stratus, the new eye-catching social media platform, plans to free social media users from unnecessary censorship while offering a wide range of socialization, entertainment and financial services. It provides a blend of popular features and functionalities from big-tech social platforms like Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.
The social network’s CEO Stephen McCullah strongly advocates for free speech protection while guaranteeing data integrity and privacy. He underscored the need to integrate these critical values into the social media space while announcing the launch of Stratus on Twitter.
Users will get to enjoy a broad ecosystem that thrives on the much-needed principles in social media service; security, freedom of speech and convenience.
The platform’s abilities are also extended far beyond the scope of exciting social media ecosystems. It also incorporates trading and settlement services by availing functions of Paypal, Coinbase and Robinhood.
McCullah is Fighting For Freedom of Expression
Ever had an opinion disregarded just because it is unpopular or goes against the mainstream narrative? Governments are tirelessly working to pass laws that will give them the right to restrict the overall flow of content and ideas viewed as dissident or controversial.
However, McCullah and his team believe that everyone has a right to speak their mind, so they deserve a social forum free from any form of third party manipulation or censorship.
Stratus is here to save user opinions from being overshadowed and taken down. McCullah’s team is always on standby to safeguard users’ remarks from censoring unless the statements encourage criminal affairs.
Mainstream social media platforms are becoming unreliable when it comes to data integrity, which is another aspect that Stratus was created to address. Existing social websites such as Facebook and Twitter often track and mine private data from users and sell it to governments, market surveyors or advertisers for a profit.
The project has placed security mechanisms to protect its users’ details from identity theft, sales and distribution of private information.
Stratus is opposed to all data phishing strategies that essentially constitute a breach of privacy. The platform has encryption mechanisms to ensure that user account info chats and messages are safe from prying eyes.
Unlike other social media networks, Stratus guarantees that permission to share any content is given only by the account owner and not by its platform.
When it comes to verification, Status allows users to blue tick their accounts so that all participants in the ecosystem can quickly identify fraudsters, catfishes and criminals. The platform also integrates features that cushion people from the threats of cyber-bullying and social profiling.
Introducing Platform Interoperability to Social Networks
The Stratus ecosystem eradicates the shortcomings in the social media space due to a lack of interoperability, where users cannot enjoy the features of more than one multiple platforms simultaneously.
In one convenient website and app, users of the McCullah-led social network get a collection of services like video sharing, chatting, e-commerce and cryptocurrency trading.
This interoperability creates a cross-platform system that spares people from the troubles of opening multiple accounts on numerous websites and having to regurgitate their profile info each time they sign up for a new platform.
Stratus also considers the effort made by content creators, who are often underpaid for their work because the accolades fall on the service stakeholders.
McCullah believes content creators with a large following should be the sole beneficiaries of their hard work and creativity. His team came up with many ways for influencers to earn revenue at higher rates than on any other social network.
