NEW YORK — Instagram users fed up with the service becoming more and more like Facebook are flocking to a hot new app called Vero.
Vero lets you share photos and video just like Instagram, plus it lets you talk about music, movies or books you like — or hate. Though Vero has been around since 2015, it surged to popularity in recent days, thanks in part to sudden, word-of-mouth interest from the cosplay community — comic book fans who like to dress up as characters. That interest then spread to other online groups.
The past seven days have been interesting. I've discovered a "new" (actually two-year-old) social network, had a chance to meet with its CEO, Ayman Hariri, spent a little time debunking a few viral Twitter rumors, and then found myself deep diving into the history of a Saudi construction company.
Adoption of a new mobile social platform seemed to bloom over the weekend. Vero, the slogan of which is “less social media, more social life,” saw its version 1.0 hit the Apple App Store on April 30 of last year, but experienced a surge in sign-ups over the weekend that caused its UK-based servers to slow to a crawl.
So, what is Vero? Simply put, it's a social media app that's a one stop shop for all of your interests, but the intent of the app actually goes much deeper than that.
Update 2/25: Apparently a lot of you like the idea of Vero! So much so, they're having trouble keeping up with the server load. Don't worry, it'll even out in a bit. If you can't sign up/post now, come back later, once things have settled down. Keep an eye on their Twitter account @verotruesocial for updates.
Vero takes away the traditional barriers between users and content, and has attracted social media stars like Christian Collins. Christian has begun to utilize Vero to not only share his content, but to strengthen his community of fans.

Social networks such as Facebook and Twitter are free because they are funded by advertising and the more people do on them, the more targeted the ads can be. Ayman Hariri wants to change all that, and has founded Vero, a social network that has no ads.
