Vero is the anti-Facebook social network everyone is talking about

Just when you thought there were enough social networks to distract you from your family, friends and work, there’s a new app in town. Except this one isn’t exactly new. Vero, which was originally released in 2015, has spiked on Apple’s App Store, jumping to the top trending spot and becoming a phenomenon out of virtually nowhere.

The spike in popularity began on Feb. 22 when an influx of users from the cosplay and tattoo communities began jumping to the app. So far, the app has been downloaded more then 500,000 times, according to the Google Play Store. Numbers for iOS downloads aren’t available.

It would appear that even Vero wasn’t ready for the sudden spike in popularity. Every time I used the app I was met with some kind of server error. That’s to be expected, though, considering the number of people that are likely signing up for the service in such a short period of time. The company said it’s working to improve server stability as soon as possible.

Available for Google’s (GOOG, GOOGL) Android and Apple’s (AAPL) iOS, Vero promises to be a kind of anti-Facebook. It’s manifesto — yes, it has a manifesto — lays out the reasons for the app’s existence as a blow-by-blow repudiation of how other social media networks do business.
