Unclefucker.net

A corporate-unfriendly social network

Unclefucker.net is a social network designed to avoid the tragedy of the commons,
the effect that makes other social networks suck, stink, and die.

Current stage: Pre-Crowdfunding

The tragedy of the commons

You might have noticed a certain pattern with successful social media sites. It goes something like this:

This is the way the world works. Everyone wants to get maximum benefit from a resource, so they exploit every social media channel available to promote their product, or their website, or whatever.

And so your social life becomes a commodity for corporate marketing departments.
Switch to another platform and that will eventually go the same way.

It's an unavoidable consequence of success.

Or is it?

Maybe that's just how things are, not how they have to be.

Unclefucker is a poisoned social network. It's deliberately designed not to become mainstream.

By virtue of its name and its approach, unclefucker.net is incompatible with the corporate world.

Unclefucker will never be a billion-dollar business. It will remain our thing.

Like ourselves it will be fun, and stupid, and sometimes boring, and frequently annoying. But it will be annoying because our friends are idiots and not because some twat at Buzzfeed is trying to get us to click on something.

Manifesto

Unclefucker is a social stream app, like Facebook. It is not a chat app.

Incidentally, we’re not going to talk about your “squad” or “bae” or any of that pandering crap.

Technology

We're not just winging this. Unclefucker has some serious development chops.
