To delete your account, you first need to submit a request through the company's website or go through the app's settings menu to the Vero Support section.

Although the app has been around since 2015, Vero enjoyed a recent bump to the top of Apple's App Store and Google Play, billing itself as a true social experience.

But with you in mind, I would say to wait a few days or weeks since the social network is now starting to get off the ground.

Claiming to be the next social media network and strictly "celebrating people's passions", Vero has made quite the impression, but only time will tell if it is the social media platform to overthrow Facebook or Instagram or if it is "just a phase". (If bad actors have to pay money to access a platform, they may decide it's not worth it.) But social media users have always been trained to expect free access to new platforms, making them more likely to balk at the idea of an entry fee.

Is it actually worth ditching Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter?

Well, some developers are still looking to tap into this space. While the people behind Vero will most likely be able to find a way to cope with the sudden uptick in user numbers, there is still no assurance that the app will remain popular in the future.

Photos, videos and text content shared by users on Vero doesn't just blast out to a mix of their friends and followers. The Vero App is now ranked as the second top free app in Apple App Store, with the YouTube being first and Instagram ranked third. Currently, more than 500 thousand messages in Instagram tagged with the hashtag #Vero.

Finally, Vero is ad-free, which means your data won't be sold to advertisers and you won't see endless advertisements in your feed, something instagram is definitely ramping-up. The content is in chronological order and you can like links, books, and movies too. People who join after the app hits its 1M-user mark will have to pay an annual subscription fee.

Vero is now a free app on the Apple iOS App Store and the Android Google Play store. The app is selling user experience, not ad space.

The app developers are also confident that the model allows them to fully focus on the user experience which will be a big plus for its subscribers.

It looks like Blizzard is teasing Diablo 3 for the Nintendo Switch
As you may have guessed, this lead many to believe it's a tease for a Switch port of Diablo 3, given the Diablo light and all. That seems to suggest that Diablo 3 is headed to the Nintendo Switch , which is a port many players have been asking for.

One of the reasons why the app is becoming so popular right now is because there are no algorithms in Vero. The traffic has been so huge that Vero has run into technical difficulties recently.

Workers were reportedly forced to live in labor camps, where they did not always routinely have access to water, food, or healthcare. Vero is still having server issues that are limiting what you can do in the app at the moment. This is a feature that Instagram was using a few years back before it chose to change it. It has a similar scrolling feed, although the company assures us this does not use a sorting algorithm like the one that has frustrated many instagram users.

The app will allow you to place the people you connect with into different tiers: close friends, friends and acquaintances.
