Why Choose Crowdstack Over Facebook Groups

Control and Flexibility

Crowdstack gives you total control:

  • You own the data - Unlike with Facebook, you always own all data and set your own rules.
  • 100% Reach - Crowdstack ensures that any content you post to your community gets shared. We never serve any outside content to your community or manipulate how your content is disseminated.
  • Domain - you can use your own domain (or subdomain) for your Crowdstack, greatly increasing your SEO.
  • No Walled Garden - don't force your members to have and use a Facebook account. Your community members can sign in with an ID from Google, Crowdstack, or Facebook.
