While still in beta, Aral Balkan says goodbye to Ello in a recent blog post. Ello the simple, beautiful & ad-free social network that promises you, that you are not the product – as it turns out- has made itself the product and sold out.
Something is missing for the about page, Balkan found out. It’s not just Paul’s face, there’s also no mention of FreshTracks Capital and the $435,000 in venture capital that Ello took from them.
* Taking venture capital * Building a sustainable, long-term platform that is private by default. Pick one. https://t.co/SrcosSZBoR
