Mona Social Network: More Dark Web Friends

Continuing my fascination with dark web social networks, I just discovered one called Mona Social Network. At the moment, it doesn’t seem to have many members.

It uses a UI that’s almost identical to Facebook’s. This isn’t that surprising, as many of the other social networks I’ve joined (e.g. Blackbook) also borrow from Facebook’s design. Looks pretty similar, doesn’t it?

On a side note, I discovered that Blackbook is testing a new beta design at http://blkbook3fxhcsn3u.onion/beta/. Feel free to check it out if that interests you. Just be careful about buying or selling anything on that site (I’ve heard through the grapevine that they’re all scams).

There isn’t a whole lot to say about Mona yet, as it seems very new and hasn’t attracted that many members. More or less, it’s quite similar to Facebook: photos, followers, followings, notifications, etc. It even has a “Messenger” like Facebook’s, for (you guessed it) sending private messages!

One advantage I would say that a social network like Mona has over Facebook is privacy (as with any Tor social site). As on any Tor hidden service, you are visiting it via your Tor IP, so unless you do something to leak that IP address, that already gives you an advantage.

If anonymity is your concern, I wouldn’t suggest using your real picture or real name (most don’t).

Out of curiosity, I decided to take a look at Mona’s “privacy policy,” and it looks like they don’t have one:

It’s not uncommon to see “unfinished” pages on the dark web, to be honest, so I kind of expected this. I’m not really sharing any personal information with Mona, except my username.

Still, I’m curious to see how this site develops, and if it attracts more users.

Oh, alright – I’m just waiting to see if I can play Candy Crush on it.

  1. Good job on your articles.I really enjoy your blog and I have been following your social network posts closely. here is my 10 cents worth:
    1. (New) Mona is very new and I am not sure if there is place for “another” social network, unless you have a niche.
    2. (Hacked) In my opinion, BlackBook is for beginners and mostly teens on there dabbing with the deep web.
    3. (Hacked) Galaxy, well galaxy is dead.
    4. (Hacked) Atlayo has a clearnet domain linking to the same site on the deepweb, essentially making it a clearnet site.
    5. (Niche) Psycho Network – my favorite one which appears to strike the correct balance between sick, demonic and below acceptable. I suspect this one is here to stay and is becoming very popular.
    6. (Established) Dark Lair – I enjoy this one, however I’m unsure if it could be classified as a social network, it is more forum/feed/reddit like.
    7. (Hacked) Torbook – it was popular at some stage, but if its not down, you can either not log in or there are so many spoofed links you dont know which is the real one.
