This is the Twitter alternative Hive Social

Warren describes Hive Social as a hybrid between Instagram and Twitter. The following screenshots show why his assessment fits.

The main page is almost like Twitter; Users can post without any character limit – and even have an editing function. There are no ads on Hive. Users can discover new content on the “For You” page.

The simplicity and functionality that many users already know from other platforms brings Hive more and more growth – the new Twitter alternative solution is therefore a suitable one for those who find Mastodon’s complexity annoying. Hive Social also scores with features such as music in the user profile, color themes and the ability to share information such as the desired pronoun or zodiac sign in the profile.

These are the rules of Hive Social

Although Hive Social is still quite small at the moment, there are of course already platform-specific guidelines for users. you can these here fully understand, we have summarized some important points for you in our article below.

When it comes to Not Safe For Work content, Hive is relatively clear. It doesn’t ban this content, but insists that users mark it as “NSFW” so it can be redacted from underage accounts. This means images that contain nudity, even if they are artistically or creatively implemented. Users may also not collect artificial likes, followers or shares, post repeated comments or content, or repeatedly contact people for commercial purposes without their consent.

Only 2 employees could be fatal to Hive Social

Unfortunately, Hive has a problem: The platform only has two employees – the two founders of the app. Hive was founded in 2019 by two college students in the USA. The two are currently also taking care of strategic and operational tasks such as administration, marketing, design and Co. That alone is impressive, but could become a problem as the number of users grows. Because many are wondering how scalable the platform can be with only two administrators.

In addition, the shortcomings of the platform are quickly apparent after a short period of use. The significant UI and loading delay, for example, shows that Hive Social is not yet technically mature. In addition, Hive Social only exists as an app so far; there is no desktop version at the moment. Embedding Hive posts doesn’t currently work either – just like sharing an article on Hive with a thumbnail preview; only a literal hyperlink is generated here. Hive also lags behind when it comes to search, which is very important for the social experience for many: Users cannot search for people by their name, they have to know the account name. A serious problem is that apparently all Hive users can claim the same “@name”. Most recently, the verification dilemma on Twitter showed the consequences of identity theft – keyword Nintendo’s Mario with a middle finger. As a result of the growing number of users, Hive is also likely to run the risk of not being able to offer brands and creators sufficient security in terms of identity.

What do you mean? With its new popularity, can Hive fix important security flaws in a timely manner, or will the app break because of it? Or could it even be acquired by another big tech company? Let us know in the comments.
