Why is Rossgram created?
Who is the owner of Rossgram?
A question that many ask and do not have proper knowledge about is why is this new social media app created in the first place.
Well, we all are aware of the Russia-Ukraine war, aren’t we?
Meta, which runs Instagram and Facebook, has narrowed down its content moderation policy to apply only to Ukraine users. With this alternation in policy, the Ukrainians were allowed to make speeches that were against Russia.
There is no such social media app that allows such a policy to promote hate speeches. But, the parent company of Instagram, Meta had made such alterations applicable only to Ukraine Instagram users. So, to stop this, Russia banned Instagram. Now that they banned Instagram, they needed another app to fill up Instagram’s space. Hence the big techs decided to bring up a new app that will be very similar to Instagram and named it Rossgram.
