Rebel or Obey? Freedom or Control? Inspire or Oppress? Emancipate yourself! Welcome to Unthink, a new social network set up as a contrast to Facebook. It’s just opened up to the first round of beta testers, aiming to provide a more honest form of social networking. That’s a network where the users own their own data and won’t see their personal information sold to advertisers, is the promise from the Tampa-based outfit. It remains to be seen whether $2.5 million in funding and a rebellious attitude is enough to take on the mighty Facebook, but we have to admit the thought of someone bold enough to try is intriguing. Unthinking the rulesUnthink CEO Natasha Dedis said [according to TechCrunch] that the idea for Unthink came to her when her son wanted to sign up for Facebook. Dedis became uncomfortable with agreeing to sign up to the terms of service for Facebook, as they could change at any time. But her son became anxious when she told him this, because not being on Facebook was unthinkable: “He was really stressed about it, like he didn’t have a choice – he HAD to be on Facebook.”
