About


We are aspiring to be a safe and diverse online social news aggregator. We have partnered with Lemmy, which is a federated, open-sourced social platform.

We're a collective of individuals upset with the way social media has been traditionally governed. A severe lack of moderation has led to major platforms like Facebook to turn into political machinery focused on disinformation campaigns as a way to make profit off of users. Websites with ineffective moderation allow hate speech to proliferate and contribute to the erosion of minority rights and safe spaces. Our goal with Beehaw is to demonstrate and promote a healthier environment.

Operating our server costs money. If you donate, you should know that 100% of the costs will go towards server time, licensing costs, and artwork. In the future if we need to hire developers or other labor, it would be sourced through this funding, but it would be transparent to the community before any changes were made.

With regards to which impact areas we most closely align with, the second impact area is perhaps the one which has the most overlap with what we are motivated to accomplish. As a news aggregator and a social media outlet, with a focus on being a safe and accepting space, we strive to create a positive social impact. We will also help to connect underprivileged and minority individuals with education and civic participation by promoting a healthier online experience.
