Rumble isn’t a new website. It’s been around since 2013. That’s when it was launched by technology entrepreneur CEO and founder Chris Pavlovski. In August 2020, Pavlovski felt YouTube was unjustly censoring and pulling select videos which did not conform to YouTubes own set of values and beliefs. In response to his belief, Pavlovsky decided to shift the focus of Rumble. Going forward, he said, Rumble would be a site that allowed creators of videos to freely express thoughts and views, without fear of unjust censorship. That’s not to say that Rumble doesn’t censor any videos. A video which includes unlawful content, such as pornography or bullying, would not pass the editorial review process. Rumble would adhere to the principle of free expression and be “immune to cancel culture,” Pavlovski said. Video content creators could post videos on Rumble, which would operate as a “free and open internet” site where users could post videos and free express their views. On Rumble, users would be free from “cancel culture” Pavlovsky said. And at the same time, users would become profit sharing users, who could make money. Rumble filed an antitrust lawsuit against Google Search in January 2021, claiming it controlled search results, meaning users searches didn’t freely explore all results. The lawsuit is ongoing. Meanwhile, the use of the Rumble video platform grows. In 2021, there were 36 million average users per month. That’s an increase from 1.6 million users per month in 2020. In January 2022, Rumble had 39 million users.
We are for people with something to say and something to share, who believe in authentic expression, and want to control the value of their own creations. We create technologies that are immune to cancel culture. Because everyone benefits when we have access to more ideas, diverse opinions, and dialogue. Join us. We are on a mission to protect a free and open internet.
Most of us live in capitalist-driven societies where money and results are the only viable outcomes. Thus discriminating is not a viable strategy. Rejecting a great talent because he is black is stupid in a capitalist driver society but it should be allowed nonetheless. In this case, a competitor is going to hire him or her and make a profit. I can't recommend this type of product who are gravitating toward racism and racial segregation. I can't recommend this type of product because they are defying science. Do you want to support racial neutrality? We have a solution! In fact, we have known this solution for thousand of years. It's called double-blind testing. Developing a platform to ease the process of double-blind interviews would be a good step towards selecting great talents without any racial biases. When I review a product, I always wonder: "Could I explain this to my 5 years old kid?" In this case, I can't. I have been thinking about it for a few minutes, I can't teach my kid about acceptance, efforts and being neutral regarding races while trying to explain the existence of a marketplace exclusively for black people. I was not able to come up with a good reason. This promotes racial segregation.

Rumble needs improvements like loading progress, progress bar thumbs, and hiding progress bar when in fullscreen, etc. But overall, its a great platform, very fast, responsive. Sad that the Android app is not upto the mark.

Ok, Made a Rumble accnt. to expand my viewer reach. Somewhere in my account set up it asked my to basically choose a plan. I do not remember the exact wording, but I did not want to give any rights or controls to my content. So I opted to stop and delete my accnt before it ever began. For reasons unknown to me, it will not let me delete my accnt. I wish I had looked at the reviews people had written before hand, but hindsight tells me I did right by stopping before adding MY video content and giving Rumble control. I shall stick with the UGETube, the platform thats been very good so far. I have absolutely no issues with UGETube. For all of you that have issues with Rumble, I recommend you go check it out UGETube. UGETube is a perfect alternative to YouTube and way less hassle than Rumble, apparently. You left wingers that complain about the flood of conservatives that came to rumble need not apply.

Rumble is a right wing disinformation platform that promotes conspiracy theories, manipulated videos and general violent hate filled garbage. This site is not for the faint of heart and should be shut down for manipulating political and anti social discourse. The worst social media platform on the planet. They never allow alternative views. They censor or won’t post anything other than right wing garbage. AVOID.
