Say hello to Ello, the sleek anti-tracking social network that's making headlines. The company claims that it's now receiving 45,000 requests to join per hour—far more than its beta platform can handle.
"We have more than a million requests in the queue. We're not telling people the number of people in the network because it will be completely different tomorrow," founder Paul Budnitz admitted.
Ello made headlines after some LGBT community members decided to flock there to protest Facebook's decision to shut down several drag queen profiles.
