Have you ever seen a piece of social media content that is hard to unsee? For Christians scrolling through Instagram, some “reels”, photos, and videos can be less than edifying. If you’ve ever felt a moral twinge when browsing social platforms, you’re not alone.
Many Christians have grown frustrated with the lack of options for social media platforms that align with their beliefs. But have no fear! There is a solution: TUVU. TUVU is a Christian alternative to Instagram that allows users to connect with brothers and sisters in Christ, all while sharing content that is uplifting and aligns with their faith.
In this blog post, we'll take a closer look at TUVU and how it compares to Instagram. So, if you're interested in finding a Christian-friendly platform for sharing photos and connecting with others, keep reading!
What is the Best Christian Alternative to Instagram?
Christians are called to be set apart, and that doesn't change when it comes to the digital world. While many choose to be salt and light on the current social platforms, for others the barrage of conscience-searing content on the mainstream platforms just isn't worth putting up with.
Thankfully, there's a platform for Christians who feel like the other social apps just aren't for them. It's called TUVU, and these are the top 3 reasons it's the best Christian alternative to Instagram.
Three reasons why TUVU is the best Christian Alternative to Instagram:
- TUVU is more than social media--it's a community.The TUVU community is full of like-minded individuals who share your values and beliefs. When you join TUVU, you'll be able to connect with people who understand you and your faith. One of the things we are most excited about at TUVU is the growing community. As a digital space for Christians to join, engage, and get to know one another, it's amazing to see what the Body of Christ is up to around the world! And isn't that what social media is all about?
- The content on TUVU will edify you, not trip you up
If you've ever seen content on mainstream social media platforms that has seared your conscience, you'll automatically understand the value of wholesome content. TUVU's moderation systems remove any content that would jar you or harm your moral compass.
- TUVU is advertisement-free
Did you know that up to 42% of your feed on other social platforms is actually advertising? Mainstream social platforms pay their bills with your eyeballs. They need to create an addicting platform so they can make more money off of you. If that business model doesn't sit right with you, you'll instantly understand why it's so valuable to pay for your membership on TUVU. Since you're the customer on TUVU (and not the product) you are treated as such. That means 100% data privacy (no selling your personal data for profit, like the other platforms do). It also means you can spend less time being sold to, and more time connecting with friends, family, your church, and the people who matter to you most.
So if you're looking for a social media platform that's a little more your speed, give TUVU a try! It's the perfect place for Christians to share their joy, connect with others, and share their faith.
