Launching Social

Gab claims it is “adding an average of 100,000 new users each month and becoming one of the top 10,000 websites.”

I would have thought that having hundreds of thousands of users would have meant a higher ranking such as in the top 1,000 Web sites. Note, they don't say how many of those users are active.

In looking at a list of the top 500 Web sites, I only have to get to number 23 before I see the name of a site I've never heard of before.

I remember when Peach launched, and it quickly had a problem with fake accounts, people taking names that on other social networks had already been established as belonging to someone established.

Facebook avoided that problem early on with its exclusivity. First Harvard, then academia, then the general public. Of course, they also have a policy requiring real names, too.
