The social media world is competitive and very few new social media networks actually make it.
Tribel is one of the newest social media platforms to join the industry!
But Tribel Social has been making headlines in the news as an alternative platform to social sites like Twitter that has…
“Safeguards in place that will put morality, truth, and We the People first”.
They are on a mission to help facilitate conversations online while censoring posts that might cause harm or aren’t truthful.
It all sounds very noble!
But does Tribel really have what it takes to compete with a giant social media site like Twitter?
This is the question we’re going to answer in this post- by analysing the lastest Tribel Social statistics and trends.
What Will I Learn?
Tribel Social is a social media platform that was released in November 2022, so to say it’s new is an understatement.
Tribel has been branded by its fans as the new “truthful” and “customised” Twitter.
Because it offers a similar platform to Twitter in terms of:
…but also has some unique features that cannot be found in any other social media platform.
Overall, it looks like it has its foot in the door of the social media world but only time will tell.
Here’s what you need to know about Tribel.
Are you tired of posting great content that no one sees?
Tribel might be worth considering.
The key to Tribel’s success so far is:
Tribel’s goal is to create a safe platform where everyone can participate in conversations around topics that interest them.
Here’s how they do it:
First of all, Tribel allows you to reach your target audience immediately.
How does it work?
Before you publish a post on the platform, you can choose an audience that the post is relevant to.
You select the audience based on a topic and this acts as a guide for Tribel to show your post to people who are interested in it.
There is nothing like this on any other social media platform.
Another huge feature is customised news feeds.
Like with Pinterest and Twitter, you select a few topics you are interested in when you sign up for the app.
This way, you only see content that you are interested in.
Tribel even has other filters to help you curate your newsfeed even further.
What about businesses and organisations?
Tribel has a number of quality tools to help businesses and brands connect with their followers online.
Because Tribel is a relatively new platform, the free organic reach that posts receive is very high.
And because this is coupled with the target audience feature, it’s easy to post content and reach the right audience quickly.
This makes it attractive for both businesses and individuals who want to connect with other users.
There are some really solid ideas that Tribel offers which have helped it get off the ground.
But the question is…
“Are these features enough to help it compete with the big social media companies?”
In October of 2022, Tribel claimed to have over 400,000 users on the platform.
While this means it has a very long way to go, the good news for the company is that they have a user base to work with.
A big part of how Tribel has grown so far is through other social media sites.
Tribel currently has:
This has been their primary strategy to drive people to their own platform.
What about Twitter?
In December 2022, Twitter shut down the accounts of many social media sites, including Tribel.
Before being shut down, Tribel had about 127,000 followers on Twitter.

This is not uncommon for smaller social media sites to promote themselves on bigger sites and it has worked well for Tribel.
The key to future growth will be getting their current users to share the platform with their friends and family.
This must happen for Tribel to become a large social media network.
Currently, the Tribel social media app is available for download on:
Apple doesn’t release information on how many downloads an app has, and Tribel hasn’t shared this information.
But we estimated it to be over 150,000+ times since launch.
What about the Google Play Store?
Tribel has had over 100,000+ downloads from the Google Play Store.

The biggest downsides to Tribel is:
But if the platform can continue to grow its user base, this will change over time and more content will be created.
Who uses Tribel?
While Tribel is yet to release data on their use demographics, SimilarWeb has some information based on their data analysis and modelling algorithm.
SimilarWeb estimates that almost 92% of all Tribel users currently come from the United States.
Here’s a breakdown of the top 5 countries for Tribel users according to SimillarWeb:
|Country||Percentage of Tribel Users|
What about age demographics?
The majority of users are estimated to be aged 55 to 64. This age bracket makes up about 19.81% of all users on the platform.
The truth is that SimillarWeb estimates that Tribel has a very balanced representation of all age brackets.
Here is the breakdown of Tribel users by age group:
|Age Group||Percentage of Tribel Users|
|18 to 24||12.26%|
|25 to 34||18.79%|
|35 to 44||16.10%|
|45 to 54||16.26%|
|55 to 64||19.81%|
When it comes to gender, the platform is estimated to have a more male-dominated audience.
58.67% of Tribel’s users are estimated to be male, while just 41.33% are female.

Social media user statistics show that there isn’t another social media network with this kind of user demographic as its primary audience – even if Facebook is heading in that direction.
But there is another big aspect to the user demographics of Tribel.
What is it?
Tribel users have mostly been linked with politics as the app has been compared directly with:
While both of those platforms lean toward right-wing users and Republicans, Tribel appeals to left-wing users and Democrats.
Tribel is free to join and there is no requirement to hold specific beliefs or opinions. In fact, the app encourages people with different views to join the conversation.
But why does Tribel tend to attract more left-wing and Democrat voters?
While Twitter is far more popular, many left-wing users are said to have deleted their Twitter accounts after Elon Musk purchased the company for $44 billion in October 2022.
There was speculation that the platform would become “too toxic” and lack “truthful transparency” for users.
After Elon Musk took over the company…
Tribel was perfectly positioned to pick up many people who left Twitter!
The bottom line is this:
Tribel and Twitter are actually very different platforms with different goals.
While the social media apps do share similar features and designs, the way they work is quite different.
But the big question is – Can Tribel compete with Twitter?
Short answer – Not anytime soon.
Tribel currently doesn’t have the user base or support to compete with a major company like Twitter.
And because Tribel tends to attract a very specific demographic of users, it’s unlikely they will be able to attract a wider range of users anytime soon.
All of the Tribel statistics indicate that Tribel is likely to remain more of a niche social media site.
