minus: A finite social network where you get 100 posts — FOR LIFE

That's different.

From the website:

Minus is a finite social network where you get 100 posts — for life.

While you can reply to a post as often as you like, every time you add to the feed, it subtracts from your lifetime total.

When you reach 0 posts left, that's it.

No exceptions.

The feed is reverse chronological, not algorithmic.

Post timestamps are vague.

Nothing is monetized.

There are no likes or follows or noisy notifications.

The site's only visible metric counts down, showing how many posts each user has remaining.

How disorienting will it be to interact on a platform that doesn't try to induce endless engagement from your every waking second?

What will you say — or make — when freed from infinite demand?

Just like life, Minus has limits.

Try it out today and see what online interaction feels like on a social network designed for less.

Free, the way we like it.

That reminds me of XKCD's experiment with a chatroom that did not allow repeated sentences:
