Why I’m moving away from Slack
I have been a long time Slack user. I got on the Slack bandwagon not to long after it came into existence. But I’m leaving Slack and moving over to Ryver. I still like Slack. The biggest problem I have with it is that I’m bored and quite frankly just done with it.
I have used it very successfully for my business as well as a simple communication tool for personal use. Now that I have started ByronDoss.com I want to try something different. I don’t want to do the same ole’ Slack communication. And this is where Ryver comes in.
First, it is 100% free. That is always a nice thing for any company or start-up. Second, there isn’t a limitation on the number of posts. In Slack, if you are using the free version, then there is a 10,000 post limit. After that, the older posts are archived and you can’t access them unless you are a paid subscriber. In Ryver, there isn’t that issue. Third, there isn’t a limit on data. Which is nice. For ByronDoss.com I want to make sure that those who participate in discussions don’t need to worry about how much data or space their conversations are taking up. Finally, I just like the look a little better. Things seem to be laid out in a better way.
Is Slack going away. heck no! It’s going to be around for a very long time. But for me and what I want to do in the future, I think Ryver is a better way to do it.
