Vero, short for “Vero – True Social,” is a social networking app that aimed to offer an alternative to traditional social media platforms. It was designed to prioritize user privacy and control over content sharing. Here are some key features and aspects of Vero:

  1. Chronological Feed: Vero displayed posts in a chronological order, meaning users saw content in the order it was shared by their connections, avoiding algorithmic sorting seen on platforms like Facebook and Instagram.
  2. Privacy Controls: Vero allowed users to categorize their connections into three groups: Close Friends, Friends, and Acquaintances. Users could control the privacy settings for each group, determining who could see their posts and updates.
  3. No Ads: Vero initially promised an ad-free experience for its users. Instead, it planned to generate revenue through subscription fees.
  4. Content Types: Users could share various types of content, including text, photos, links, movies, books, music, and places they visited, giving them the ability to share a wide range of interests.
  5. Collection Posts: Vero allowed users to group content into collections, making it easier to share related posts on specific topics or events.
  6. Music Integration: The app integrated with music streaming services like Apple Music, Spotify, and SoundCloud, enabling users to share their favorite music tracks and albums.
  7. No Follower Counts: Vero did not publicly display follower counts or likes on posts, aiming to reduce the pressure associated with social validation metrics.
  8. Paid Subscription: While initially free for early adopters, Vero planned to introduce a subscription model where users would have to pay to continue using the platform after a certain period. This subscription fee was intended to keep the platform ad-free.
  9. Invite System: Vero initially used an invite system, where users could only join if they were invited by an existing user.
  10. Strong Privacy Focus: Vero positioned itself as a privacy-conscious social network, emphasizing user data control and ownership.
