Gab is the free speech social network.
Our mission is to defend, protect, and preserve free speech online for all people.
Gab refused to censor on behalf of Apple and Google and is banned from both App Stores, but you can still get the Gab app on your phone here.
Gab seeks to export the uniquely American value of free speech to the entire world. Regardless of whether Gab’s administrators, outside activist pressure groups, “cancel culture” Internet mobs, the mainstream media, foreign governments, or any other persons agree with any Gabber’s viewpoints: political speech that is protected by the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution will be allowed on the platform. Illegal activity, threats of violence, doxxing, pornography, child exploitation, and spam are not allowed on Gab.
It’s not Gab’s job to “fact check” political opinions, news, history, math problems, memes, or anything else.
We have three jobs:
1. Build scalable technology that empowers everyone to speak freely.
2. Take action to prevent and remove any illegal activity in our community.
3. Make money to fund the development, operation, and growth of the platform and community.
Gab was founded in 2016 by Andrew Torba, a Christian technology entrepreneur who left Silicon Valley to start Gab after he saw the rise in censorship from Big Tech platforms during the 2016 election.
As a result of our free speech principles, Gab has been no-platformed and banned by 25+ service providers over the years including both App Stores, payment processors, hosting providers, and even VISA.
Gab and Andrew have been relentlessly smeared by Big Tech, the mainstream media, academics, members of the U.S. Congress, and more for refusing censor first amendment-protected political speech on Gab.
Despite these challenges Gab has grown to become resilient by depending solely on our community of people from around the world to support the site and by building our own in-house infrastructure from the ground up.
Our community includes millions of people from all different walks of life with diverse ideological beliefs, political opinions, and backgrounds. What we all share is a commitment to preserving free speech online for everyone. Our community members are our volunteers, code contributors, investors, donors, customers, and several have even become employees.
Our Business Model
On Gab you are not a product being sold.
You are a valued member of our community.
We hope to earn your financial support by providing a valuable service to you.
GabPro is an optional subscription service which unlocks additional features and services that the free versions of our services do not offer such as the ability to become verified, create groups, bookmark posts, and more.
Merchandise and Donations
Gab sells a variety of merchandise as a revenue stream on the Gab Shop, including our infamous Make Speech Free Again hat and other products.
The Internet is an amazing innovation. It was the world’s first ‘decentralized’ communication system. The Internet was designed to combat censorship. It was designed to withstand the forces of onerous governments and corporations. But as the Internet matured, the limits of its initial design are becoming obvious.
We believe what was once considered decentralized, is no longer decentralized enough. The free and open Internet has become increasingly controlled and closed by a handful of elites in Silicon Valley. The freedom brought to us by the Internet, and the economic expansion it offers, is under threat.
Thankfully, there are promising new solutions. With these solutions have come promising new opportunities. Market forces are changing and the time is right to begin work on a new foundation. What follows is a chance to participate in the development of a bold and defiant new Internet. One built, funded, and driven by The People.
