Engine 2 - New (Free) Social Media Site
After a few years of having a paid community, Engine 2 is now hosting a free one again. It's on the site called Social Engine, and you have to request an invitation before you can register to post. Well, AFAIK it's free. Nobody actually mentioned a fee nor addressed the question outright when asked on E2E.
If you like communities such as Pinterest and Instagram, then you'll have no problem using this site, for it's basically a clone of those.
The Engine 2 Extra site had coaches, a file and video archive, and (long ignored) message boards. Most people posted on their blog that was provided. I'm not the most tech savy person around but don't see anything like that on the new site. AFAIK, the remaining 2 "coaches" and "Fire Marshalls" will also be posting to the new site.
Let's see if this community grows or falters, like Engine 2 Extra has done since Natala left.
