Brazilian Evangelical Christians have launched a new site that intends to be a “sin-free” alternative to Facebook. The site, called “Facegloria,” attracted over 100,000 users in its first month of operation. 


The Christian Post reports that Facegloria will not allow curse words, as well as about 600 other banned words. Violent content is prohibited, in addition to sexual content, whether gay or straight. 


Web designer Atilla Barros said, "On Facebook there is a lot of violence and pornography, so (we) thought we'd found a network where we could talk about God, love and share your word.” 


Barros also said that the company aims to be “morally and technically better than Facebook. We want all Brazilian Evangelicals to shift to Facegloria.” 


The creators of Facegloria hope to see 10 million users on the site in the next two years. 


Facegloria is a social media site similar to Facebook, but offers Christian differences, including an “Amen” button instead of “Like.”
