If you’ve not heard of Minds it is essentially a new social network currently in Beta that focuses on security, privacy and transparency more than other social media giants like Facebook. Minds claims that it encrypts all messages so they cannot be read by governments, advertises or even Minds themselves.

Facebook has been in the media the past couple of years due to privacy concerns, changes to the user interface, and removal of features to name a few. You can read more about the criticism of Facebook over on Wikipedia.

Why? Various leaks from NSA whistleblowers like Edward Snowden have revealed to the public that social networks often hand over users’ private data to the government.

The guys behind Minds have created a post outlining all the issues around privacy along with the following infographic.
