The Ukrainian social network within the WE.UA web platform allows you to exchange public and personal messages, fill out your personal page (Profile), keep a feed of your own posts and much more.Registration on WE.UA is open and free and possible on the main page of the Ukrainian social network .
Each User of the Ukrainian social network WE.UA can independently choose a short and concise address (alias) of his page. This address must consist of lowercase characters written in the Latin alphabet az , numbers 0-9 and a separator for the words "-", or "_" with a total length of 6 characters or more.
In the account settings, it is advisable to specify your valid First and Last Name so that we can confirm your profile and you will receive the status of "Verified User".
If a user hides his name behind a fictitious nickname and is not ready to write his own real name above his posts, there is no trust in such a user and the messages spread by him are most likely of dubious content. Trust only verified users!
On his page, the User can set a photo avatar and a cover image for a better look and branding of the page. We encourage you to use low images in landscape orientation for Profile covers, as user pages can be viewed on large desktop screens.
You can also publish short autobiographical information "About yourself" on the User's page. There may be links to your sites, exhibitions of works, or works. You can talk about yourself on the WE.UA social network with a video: just add a link to a YouTube video in the text block.
All users of the Ukrainian social network WE.UA can get the status of "Verified user" after filling in all the necessary contact data and the confirmation procedure, which can be carried out in several ways:
Verified users will receive a special designation next to the photo avatar on their pages so that other users can easily distinguish them visually.
Remember that all users of the WE.UA social network can complain about each other through a special interface and the "Complain" button. If the User receives at least 1 complaint and we find that the account is suspicious, we will require such a user to undergo account verification in a mandatory manner, otherwise we will block the account. If there are more than 3 complaints about an unverified profile, it will be blocked automatically.
We may share with third parties lists of unscrupulous users who have been identified as fraudulent.
We promote publicity and availability of information. Public accountability must follow public accessibility. This is described in detail in a separate article: The principle of publicity and responsibility . In general, we can say this: "don't write publicly what you are not ready to publicly answer for or apologize for." Doubtful and false information has no place on WE.UA
Public notices include:
Such messages can be seen by all WE.UA visitors , even unregistered readers. Also, be as careful and tactful as possible in your public statements on we.ua. Keep in mind that we do not support criticism of the authorities , we urge you not to insult famous persons on the pages of WE.UA , and we prohibit the use of we.uaservices for any justification of military and information aggression of the Russian Federation .
Please do not use the language of terrorists and occupiers and create public posts in Ukrainian or English, as WE.UA is a Ukrainian project. There will be no Russian language and, hopefully, Russian content in our interfaces.
Public messages are not additionally encrypted when stored on our servers or when transmitted over the network. A public message written by you can be used against you by third parties in court proceedings.
For exchanging private messages in the Ukrainian social network WE.UA, there is a system of instant messages (IM - Instant Messaging) with E2E encryption. When a conversation starts between users, a simple chat is created in which all messages are stored in chronological order. Private conversations can only be held by users who have exchanged requests in Druza. If your application in Druza was rejected, you will not be able to write to this user.
We call the exchange of private messages Chats, because in our instant messages there is no information about the Recipient (as it can be in Email or SMS), only about the Sender and the Chat, where this message should be shown.
Later, chats for 2 users can be expanded to a larger audience by inviting other users from the "Friends" list. In group chats, it really doesn't matter to whom the message is addressed (typically, it is assumed that everyone), it is more important when and by whom.
Each chat in our social network has its own identifier and address. Third-party users cannot join someone else's chat. New members must be invited by one of the valid members of the chat and thereby convey information about the new member to other users.
We do not claim the title of the most protected Messenger in the world and urge you not to transmit information about state or military secrets in personal messages; about the movement or deployment of military personnel, as well as: medics and volunteers. We ask the military not to use the WE.UA messenger , but to use specialized hardware and digital means of communication. And in general, we urge our military not to use any publicly available social networks to prevent OSINT investigations of the aggressor.
Not all instant messages on the Ukrainian social network WE.UA are private, although all private messages are instant.
The point is to use WebSockets technology, when messages are delivered to the Recipient extremely quickly (instantly). Not only private Chats of personal messages work on this technology. Also, messages in comments and in the widget of emotions (likes) are delivered instantly. In order for other users to see the message you wrote, they do not need to reload the page, the messages will appear in their interface almost immediately. This is how WebSockets work.
News channels are a one-to-many communication method, when the information owner provides regular messages to a certain address. Those interested can come at any time to the desired and prearranged address and read the updated list of messages.
For example, the oldest channels are RSS feeds of news sites or blogs. In the XML files of such RSS feeds, update messages are separated by structural blocks. Sites provide the addresses of their RSS feeds in a one-way manner, and news-hungry readers come for updates when it's convenient for them.
Update channels on WE.UA work according to a similar principle . Only, our channels are designed in the form of convenient message ribbons and can have unique concise addresses, text description and additional graphic design (cover at the top of the page). The author of the content creates a message that is saved in the feed of his channel. Readers have 3 ways to read messages from the news channel on WE.UA
Of course, news channels in the WE.UA social network do not need to be manually filled in if you already have a site with an RRS news feed. Just add the feed address in the Channel settings. We will check for updates at a certain frequency (1-2 hours, maybe more).
Each of the participants can subscribe to a public or private news channel and receive information from their favorite sources in the News Feed ("Favorites" list).
If your news channel on the WE.UA social network has more than 100 subscribers, we can offer you an additional way of earning - placing contextual advertising from Google AdSense between posts.
