Your Hub is an independent free speech alternative to Instagram.

A Hub is a social media blog on a publishing network that preserves your post, anchors your copyright, and builds your reputation, before you repost the link on the Internet.

Hubs subscribe to other Hubs and people can follow Hubs.

Your basic Hub is free without ads, trolls, noise or censorship.

Groups

Your Hub is a safe, sane, civil alternative to a public or private Facebook group.

Each Hub hosts a curated internal conversation in its forum and can publish the best from that to other Hubs or all the way out to the Internet. You can create public or private Hubs that are listed or unlisted.

Basic Hubs are free, without ads, algorithms, tracking, trolls or manipulation.

Organizations

Your basic Hub is free. You can use it to publish a beautiful feed with photos and video directly to your members and customers. Hubs can accept invitations to join network directories.

Premium features will let you respond to customer inquiries and wishes for products and services and connect with new members & customers. Pricing will start at $5/mo for non-profits, and $10/mo for small business after free beta.

Networks

Your association, coalition, marketplace or movement can create a network, either at your own domain, or on Tru.

Networks combine a curated newsfeed with a directory to offer dynamic connections, both between organizations and with all of their members and customers.

Networks will start at $20/mo with equally affordable rates for larger networks when Tru comes out of free beta.
