Who are we?
CYGO™ Network is an unregistered non-profit organization which aims to provide privacy-oriented online services which are based on open source software, as well as to help fight against online censorship by offering a powerful alternate social networking platform. Additionally, we pride ourselves on our free web productivity services that rival Google Drive in performance and rich features. We are based mainly in the United States but have members and contributors internationally.
No, CYGO is not a company.
Despite our statements that we are an unregistered nonprofit (otherwise known as a community organization) people continue to make statements which portray us as a company. CYGO is a community of like-minded people working together, volunteering without pay to bring you the online services you love, completely free of charge. It was founded in 2017 by Logan L. Johnson, who heads the development of our web applications and performs the majority of work which goes into CYGO. Additionally, all of these super amazing people aid in web development, graphic design, concept management, community management, and more; CYGO could not operate without their tremendous contributions.
CYGO™ began in November 2017 when our founder was searching for an alternative to Facebook which respected user privacy. It started out as the one simple web application, and over time has grown into a thriving community and suite of high-quality web services. Through our platforms we hope to counter the left-wing bias seen in technology and social media.
How are we fighting for freedom of expression?
We’re using our skills and resources to give censored and silenced individuals in the United States and around the world a platform to express themselves as they please, and to share information at their own discretion, without interference from any government agencies, corporations, or individuals in the media.
