Should Bloggers Use Ello?

Hey guys!
So I know a few months ago, Ello got a lot of press because it was the first social media that allowed optional tracking and no ads. It was said to be the "anti-facebook". I got an invite to join today (yes, it's invite only right now) and I thought I'd do a little post on it! But before I get into that, go ahead and follow me here if you have an account, or if you'd like an invite, leave a comment and I'll invite you!

So, do I think bloggers should use Ello? 
...Well I think that Ello could be really useful because it seems to me to be part tumblr, part twitter, part google +, and part facebook. You have the picture sharing that tumblr and facebook would give, you can categorize your friends like google plus, and you "follow" people like you would on twitter. The majority of people on the discover page seems to be artists or photographers, so I think bloggers could do really well on the site! I also know that it's growing in popularity (it already has over 1,000,000 users) and it's only going to get bigger. 

The problem, though, is that there aren't that many users compared to twitter, facebook, or instagram, so if you're trying to reach a large audience, it might not be the best site for you!

Overall I'd say that if you have time to manage another social media site, go ahead and use Ello, but if you don't, then stick to the bigger ones with more users! 

Don't forget to follow me on Ello (@misssienna) and let me know in the comments if you use ello and what your thoughts on it are!
