Parler Is Now Back Online

After a month of going dark, Parler is back – but with a new hosting service! Since the social media platform first launched in August 2018, it has had more than 20 million users. They’ve been eager to finally return to a safer place for free speech, privacy and civil dialogue. If you forgot why Parler disappeared in the first place, let’s recap.

Why did Parler leave?

Parler “left” after the Jan. 6 riot on Capitol Hill. Amazon Web Services decided to suspend it because rioters spread hateful messages after the 2020 election. Apple and Google also booted the app from their online stores.

Because of Section 230, Parler said it wasn’t responsible for the riot and the people who chose to go to the Capitol, which sadly took the lives of some people and a police officer and left others injured. So, the entire platform decided to go offline until it could find a new hosting service. It looks like they got what they wanted.

Will it be the same?

Only time will tell. It seems to me that the platform will still allow civil discourse on both sides. But it looks like it may have some new restrictions when the platform is officially running again. 

With the firing of former CEO John Matze, the company still is going through a careful search for someone who will lead Parler into a thriving and impactful social media outlet. Welcome back, Parler!
