Parler Goes Into Oblivion

Parler, a right-wing social media, has been almost homeless on the internet since three companies from Big Tech have all booted it from their platforms. 

The website went offline last Sunday night as a result of being cut off by Amazon's Web Service. Parler's CEO John Motze announced that Parler could go offline for up to a week. There is no further notice about the website.

Amazon, Apple, and Google have all booted Parler off their platforms because of illegal and dangerous activity that was occurring on the platform. The platform is now offline and other alternative platforms are recommended.

The future of Parler is an open question even if it can find a new service host. It lacks the resources of big companies like Facebook, and it's hard to maintain a balance between meeting the users' needs and the mainstream requirements, as what happened this weekend shows.

What Does It Mean “Parler”? 

Parler is an American alt-tech microblogging and social networking service. It has a significant user base of Donald Trump supporters, conservatives, conspiracy theorists, and right-wing extremists. Posts on the service often contain far-right content, antisemitism, and conspiracy theories such as QAnon. Journalists have described Parler as an alternative to Twitter, and users include those banned from mainstream social networks or opposing their moderation policies. 

Parler, established in 2018, has always claimed to be an unbiased social media and a place where people can speak freely and express yourself openly without fear of being deplatformed for your views. It is a social media platform where people can share posts, photos, videos and of course, chat with each other. 

It has been heavily used by supporters of President Donald Trump and right-wing conservatives. Many conservative politicians and media personalities have become active on Parler, since they consider Twitter, Facebook and other mainstream social media platforms have been corrupted by misinformation and biased political views.



Parlor is an app that connects people who want to talk right now. Users of all ages can talk to each other on the app regardless of age. The app is also super simple to use and you are guaranteed to meet new people every time you open the app.


MeWe is an alt-tech social media and social networking service that has gained a lot of popularity in America among conservatives due to its light approach to content moderation. The service is popular in Hong Kong, where it became popular in November 2020.


Reddit is a social media website that is known for its anonymous and democratic user base. It is the largest non-commercial message board and is divided into subreddits, which are ranked by the community. Users can vote on posts, and the most popular posts will rise to the top.


Twitter is a social media platform where people are able to share posts in 140 characters or less. It is used by many to share their thoughts and opinions about anything they want. Twitter is also used by many famous people like Trump and Kanye West, so people are able to see what is going on in their lives.

The Future Is Hazy

The future of Parler is uncertain because this app became an objective of big tech companies. 

Fortunately, there are many other apps that are similar to Parler and are great for those who prefer to use other than the first and go-to app. Some apps are easier to use and have a better interface and more features.
