One _huge_ issue with MeWe is that it is based in the United States.

My understanding is that under US Case Law, the terms and conditions of
usage of a website are meaningless, irrelevant, and are to be
disregarded, in the event of bankruptcy, foreclosure, or any other
condition in which the sale of data is fiscally prudent. Unfortunately,
I no longer have the relevant case citations.

_The California Consumer Privacy Act of 2018_ (CCPA) does not provide
nearly as much in the way of personal data protection, as the EU GDPR.
Personally, I think that it provides less in the way of personal privacy
protection than the GDPR, but most of the material about it that I have
read, claim otherwise. Furthermore, it (CCPA) only comes into effect 1
January 2020, and then only if there are no court cases that need to be
completed. As an additional kicker, individuals outside of California,
are excluded from its protection. Individuals residing within California
are also excluded, if certain conditions are met.

Whilst the GDPR is vague about both who, and where coverage applies,
European privacy enforcement agencies have uniformly said that the
location of the company that violates the GDPR doesn't matter, and that
they will use the local equivalent of long arm statutes, to enforce it.
(I think that the most recent harmonisation of the GDPR defined coverage
to included both citizens and residents. For the time being, Estonian
Digital Residents are excluded, unless they physically reside in the EU,
or an area in which the GDPR is the law of the land.)

I am not a lawyer.
This is not legal advice.
