One thing I realized that I like about Ello is that political discourse hasn't invaded quite yet. Now, don't get me wrong, I believe we should talk about important things. But, I avoid the news when I avoid the news for a reason - and going to FB and even Twitter violates the principle because of what's discussed there. Since that hasn't happened here yet, it makes me smile. Mostly people sharing thoughts, beautiful photos, and fun things. I know it won't always remain so. I'll enjoy it for now.
