“The first page of Google can only be changed by paying for ads, which annoys users and costs the company dearly. Our new platform will allow businesses to post their most relevant content on the front page, and if users like it, they can interact with it right there. Most companies and partners will prefer this new interface of people’s digital life to Google’s old status quo. “– said Richard Socher, co-founder and CEO of You.com.

The developers also claim that You.com “Raises the bar” privacy by offering users an incognito mode “Zero trace”… Currently, the platform does not display ads, does not sell data to third parties, and does not track user behavior on the Internet. While the company does not rule out the possibility of advertising appearing on the platform, it has publicly committed itself never to show users “Targeted advertising that violates privacy”.
