Ayman Hariri is a Lebanese billionaire, son of a former Prime Minister and half-brother to the current Prime Minister. Hariri used to help run a family construction business that is no longer active. He launched Vero in 2015, but it has recently skyrocketed in popularity, becoming the most popular free app in the Apple Store just this week. There are no ads on the app (yay!) and the feed shows up chronologically by order posted rather than the annoying (imho) algorithm Facebook uses to put what THEY think you want to see at the top of the page.
I learned about the app from this CNN story.
Here’s the website link to Vero – and today I saw THIS: DUE TO EXTRAORDINARY DEMAND, VERO EXTENDS “FREE FOR LIFE” OFFER. I mean, seriously. Check it.
