When talking with friends, the one problem that I constantly hear about Facebook is that it's becoming more and more infested with ads and with content that they just aren't interested in. They feel that Mark Zuckerberg's original vision has been lost to a constant stream of unwanted advertising, spam and, dare I say it, fake news. What's more, i've said myself for a few years now, that if you have more than 150-200 Facebook friends, it almost becomes a full time job trying to keep up with what they are all up to. Several social networks over the years have tried to muscle in on Facebook's action by attempting to provide a much smaller, more intimate platform for communication, but up till now, none has really hit the nail on the head.

So, I'm pleased to report that now there is a new kid on the block that aims to give users a service that's much closer to the social network that you thought you were getting when you signed up to Facebook. MemorySphere is a social platform for iOS that not only eliminates all the unwanted background noise of advertising, spam and fake news but also prevents intrusions by people that you don't know or have little or no interest in. It does all this whilst providing much of the same positive services that encouraged us to sign up with Mr Zuckerberg's behemoth in the first place.

MemorySphere keeps you connected to the friends and family that are of most importance to you. You won't have a problem with random people contacting you because you are in total control of the process and the only way you can be connected is via your mobile phone number or your email address - giving you complete privacy. What's more, you have the freedom to communicate without any of the side noise that you get with most other social apps. There has been a lot of talk in the media recently about 'fake news.' This app lets you choose the news and media sites that you trust and stay up to date without having to worry about any others in your feed. You'll also see all stories in chronological order rather than having to put up with favored stories being pushed at you right, left and center.

Just like other social networks you can chat to your friends via private messenger, add new friends, create groups of friends, plan events and invite your friends to join you, set up your favorite news and social sites to watch as well as the obvious update and photo sharing facilities. Unlike many other platforms however, you can also create and share fun and informative polls. Maybe you want to find out your friends' favorite songs of the moment or you want to check on potential vacation destinations for your next getaway. You can choose to share these polls and events purely with your friends or go for a wider audience via the whole MemorySphere community.

It was only a matter of time before someone created a new and more intimate social network that gives the user total control and doesn't regard it's community as a product that it can sell goods to. The fact is, while Facebook and similar social platforms seem to get bigger and bigger, customer satisfaction is waning and many people have opted for apps like Instagram as their 'go to' network because of the volume of advertising and lack of privacy that they have to put up with. While there are no ads at the moment, the developers state that the free version of MemorySphere will feature them at some point. However, they will be visible solely at the discretion of the user. MemorySphere is available now for free for iPhone and iPad on the App Store with an Android version due to follow soon.
