There is a whole world out there of activists and thought leaders who need a platform that safeguards their right to communicate uncensored and without being tracked.

As part of its Occupy Privacy campaign, UmeNow announced today that it is promoting its anonymous posting feature. "At a time when giant social media companies are focused on tracking people and profiting by selling and trading on people's private communication and data, we are going in the opposite direction," said Evelyn Castillo-Bach, founder of the new startup UmeNow.

UmeNow is known as a super-private network that has banned all ads, third party apps and games to protect its members from unauthorized extraction of private information. "Most people don't know that UmeNow is also a powerful platform for anyone who wants the option to write and broadcast ideas anonymously," said Castillo-Bach who is known to her followers as "Privacy Mom."

"There is a whole world out there of activists and thought leaders who need a platform that safeguards their right to communicate uncensored and without being tracked. UmeNow is built to serve them too," said Castillo-Bach who blogs regularly on privacy issues.
