Gab is an online social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send and read short blog-like messages called gabs. Gab enables its users or gabbers to post up to 300 characters in one message and to access additional functionality via using tags: a # option (hashtag) to reference hash topics, an @ option (username) to reference other users, a : option (emoji) to insert emoticons, and the option to add several hyperlinks and images to each message.
Gab is described as a social network focused on upholding its users’ freedom of expression. Only registered users can read, post, upvote, or downvote gabs currently. Gab is currently based in San Mateo, California.
Gab was created in response to social media controversy around freedom of expression and censorship, and entered into the beta release of the website as of Monday, August 15, 2016.
The site has garnered some criticism as being an “Alt-Right” social network, although its creator has stressed that the site is for everyone. The Key person behind the Gab project is Andrew Torba (American entrepreneur and current CEO of Gab).
As of November 2016, the social network was still in private beta testing.
