What?! There's a new social network that doesn't bombard me with ads? Sign me up!
Say hello to Ello. The Budnitz founded social network that launched about six weeks ago and pitches itself as an alternative to the world's largest social network. What makes it better?

"You are the product that's bought and sold."
