  • Is Facegloria a new social networking site like a sin free Facebook?

Evangelical Christians in Brazil have launched a new social networking site called Facegloria where swearing and erotic content is banned.

Facegloria is a Facebook like social networking site launched by a group of Evangelical Christians in Brazil. The site is like a sin free Facebook because explicit content such as swearing and erotic material is absolutely prohibited and banned on the site. 

The team behind Facegloria claim they have since its conception attracted more than 100000 members. The site was only launched a month ago and the numbers could even increase with time.

Facegloria has banned a total of 600 foul mouthed words and instead of a ‘Like’ button on Facebook there are ‘Amen’ buttons which show appreciation for a post on Facegloria. Facegloria is not the first site to have been more religious oriented and fed up with Facebook’s total lack of respect for all sorts of religions.

Previously Ummaland a Muslin social site was launched in 2013. Currently Ummaland has more than 329.000 users who have extended privacy settings along with daily inspirational quotes based on Islamic values. 

Currently Facegloria is only available in Portuguese, however it will soon be launched in other languages and additional plans of launching a mobile app are being worked on. Facegloria is especially popular in Brazil since it has the largest Roman Catholic population in the world. 

According to Facegloria, the content on Facebook is filled with nudity and violence, therefore they wanted to create social network where they could freely talk about God. LGBT material is also banned on Facegloria.

The site came up when one of the founders Mr. Barros had been working in the Mayor of Ferraz de Vasconcelos office and came up with the idea. The mayor Acir dos Santos invested more than $16000 in the project.
