CauseBOOK... Unique And Built For You!
The Design, Conservative Content, and The Facebook Integration and what that means to you...
With CauseBOOK, you'll enjoy every feature you have come to depend on with Facebook but with none of the penalties, frustration of banned or throttled content, and let's face it, certain way-too-angry "Friends," many of us have on Facebook.
First, CauseBOOK is an "Officially-Approved" Facebook Web Application. CauseBOOK lives alongside and integrates with Facebook and CauseBOOK has all of the Facebook-like features you know and depend on. You'll find using CauseBOOK a cinch and you will discover CauseBOOK features that you won't find anywhere else.
Second, one of the most important of those features is the ability to share CauseBOOK content with Facebook "Friends". And because CauseBOOK works alongside Facebook, sharing content from CauseBOOK on to Facebook, or inviting selected friends onto CauseBOOK is simple to do in just a few keystrokes.
CauseBOOK lets you get back to enjoying what social media should be without necessarily giving up Facebook. CauseBOOK lets you have your social media cake and eat it too.
And the CauseBOOK cake is bigger and tastier too. Really.
With in-line, one-click access to over 100 Conservative news and opinion Publishers, websites, Facebook and YouTube video Channels, live Conservative broadcast TV and live Talk Radio Shows, Twitter feeds, and more.
And most importantly, CauseBOOK does not censor, label, or "dead-spin" what you choose to read or watch or when you choose to share within CauseBOOK... or even when you share CauseBOOK content on Facebook.
At CauseBOOK, we count on two things in this regard -
You, like us, are responsible, independently-minded Americans. Of the dozens of vicious and insulting things we have been labeled with over these years, the last box on that list of things we supposedly are is the one that is for "none of the above".
We have, for years, stood for and encouraged folks to be as informed as they can be and then decide for themselves. We assume that "news", any news, should be corroborated and even when it is, we know it comes to us with a certain point of view. Accordingly, it is not our job nor is it right for us to moderate your choices. You are free to think for yourself.
Now, we all know this position strikes some people as "odd and unacceptable" as if somehow common-sense Americans need to be protected from themselves. Nonsense.
What is clearly "odd and unacceptable" and even insane, is the idea that we would be beholden to ideologues in the press or technology, who oppose our viewpoint, and quite arbitrarily dictate what is fake, real, or "dangerous". Thanks but no thanks.
So, read, watch, and inform yourself. Consider the information or opinion you will find on CauseBOOK and share it if you wish.
And in the meantime, we will leave it up to you to add the cute videos, the pictures of the family, Classmates and Birthday wishes, and the fun part of social media.
Now, we don't doubt that you are asking yourself
the obvious questions
Who are we and where did the idea of CauseBOOK come from?
Those are two very fair questions.
We're 30-year veteran developers of patented web marketing technologies and to be plain about it, we're pretty good at it.
But we are not just "techies", we are techies who happen to be long-time Constitutional Conservatives and because we had the knowledge, resources, and passion for certain nonprofit causes and advocacies, we turned our attention towards the internet and social media about 15 years ago.
And we never stopped and the mission grew - we would initiate and run the Stop Child Porn On Facebook and Red Envelope Day Campaigns with millions of Followers. "CauseACTION" would be born and we have since sent nearly a billion emails for our Conservative cause and nonprofit friends in the Prolife, Sexual Assault Prevention and Gold Star Military Family communities and dozens of Conservative and Republican Congressional and Presidential campaigns... all of which led to a very active blog with some 200,000 very engaged Conservative Subscribers at "CauseACTION".
In short, we love the art and science of messaging and new technology put to purpose. That has been our craft for forty years.
But messaging and digital marketing comes in several forms. Over the years we would involve ourselves and learn still more, about the other media "channels". All of it, part of what we bring to you today at CauseBOOK.
We embedded media teams into Iraq and Afghanistan to produce
a TV "reality" show and produced an award-winning Gold Star Family film that would be shown at Arlington National Cemetery,
We safe-housed sex-trafficking victims and helped to re-write State law to help protect those victims and prosecute their abusers. That would lead to a national dispute (that continues to this day) with the senior management team of Facebook, over their failure to control thousands of active pedophiles using Facebook to engage in their dark criminality. That would take us through the offices of the FBI and into meetings with well-intentioned, but dumb-struck Representatives and their Staffers on Capitol Hill. And we can tell you where the best take-out food can be found in the heart of "Big Tech" country in Mountainview, California.
Are we special in this respect? By no means. We were there and willing when we walked by, saw that a house was on fire and we dialed 911. Many of you have done no less.
But we have, to use an old expression, "been around the block". More than a couple of times. We understand Conservative Americans and yes, we understand "Big Tech" because we have been face-to-face and every one of those experiences has contributed to CauseBOOK and our meeting with you today.
So, what specifically does this trip down memory lane have to do with CauseBOOK?
Well, a lot. We are like an old dog who has always loved to learn new tricks. We were in the mix from the very earliest days of direct messaging and data "warehousing", which coincided with the explosion of technology and the internet. Mark Zuckerberg was but a toddler and Google was known as "Backrub" when we designed our first PC-based systems. We have not stopped since.
And so, we were Day-One witnesses to everything that was both magnificent and dangerous about social media. We have always celebrated free enterprise and American ingenuity, but we have always understood technology's dark side. We watched Google's early mantra to "do no harm" evaporate; and we were eyes-wide-open as to social media's systemic flaws that could lead to abuse. None of what so many now see about Google, Facebook, and Twitter is "news" for us.
For some years then, we had mapped out a "go-to" social media platform for common-sense, Conservative Americans. We had also very carefully considered how social media could be the spear-tip in a more cohesive and effective pooling of American digital Conservative voices.
After the 2018 Mid-Term Election, we went to work. We had four very specific goals, each with you in mind.
We Had Four Major Goals For CauseBOOK
Each of these goals had you, your family and community, and a Conservative audience in mind right from the beginning. From where we sit, the stakes for our Nation and Constitutional governance are huge.
CauseBOOK had to be more than a "me too" social media solution. We would bring you something more valuable and we would deliver it to you in a convenient all-in-one-place design.
CauseBOOK would have to be easy to adopt and familiar to assure you that it was simple for you to get on board... and just "like riding a bike".
CauseBOOK should live peaceably in the same social media jungle as the "800lb. Gorilla". If possible, we didn't want to force you into an "either/or" choice between your social media "families".
We wanted to give you the ability to easily share content to your Facebook Page and even allow you to selectively invite Facebook friends to come and join you on CauseBOOK. Other social media platforms would be next.
Those Four Goals were...
We are happy to report...
Done, Done, Done and Done
The Social Media platform assembled by and for Constitutional Conservatives.
The social media platform that is carefully integrated with Facebook.
This exclusive Facebook integration means you can easily invite selected Facebook Friends and family into CauseBOOK.
This integration means you are able to share CauseBOOK posts, news, opinion, and video directly from CauseBOOK to Facebook.
You will have constantly-updated one-click access to news and opinion stories from over 30 Conservative Publishers - The Daily Wire, Breitbart News, The Epoch Times, PJ Media, Gateway Pundit, Newsmax, World Net Daily, and many more.
Access to live radio broadcasts and podcasts from the top 50 Conservative Talk Show Radio Hosts - Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity, Mark Levin, Dennis Prager, and many more.
The Tweets of the top 100 Conservative political and cause Influencers - President Trump, Ben Shapiro, Mark Levin, Vice-President Pence, Dan Bongino, and many more.
A dozen live Conservative broadcast TV, YouTube, and independent video Channels - Newsmax TV, Bill O'Reilly's "The One News", Daily Wire TV, Tea Party Patriots TV, and more.
A growing number of dedicated Conservative social media "Groups" and Discussions on Prolife, Second Amendment, and the Culture War in media, schools, and elsewhere - Choice42, I Am Second, Culture Reframed, and more.
A full set of web tools to help you engage your Representatives, make Donations and so much more.
And as odd as it may seem to some, CauseBOOK will also give you access to the news and opinion from the Left-Democrat news and opinion Publishers, as well. It pays to be informed and seeing and reading what the opposition is saying out loud speaks volumes.
And, of course, CauseBOOK is the place to post the family news, those entertaining videos and pictures, just as you do on Facebook.
First, we will show you the ways that CauseBOOK's features are nearly identical to what you are accustomed to using on Facebook.
Second, we will show you how CauseBOOK goes so much further with a robust catalog of Conservative news, opinion, radio, and television... all in one place and easily shared with your friends and family wherever they may happen to be on social media.
We hope you agree that this is a winning combination for independently-minded, Conservative Americans.
Have fun and see you all on CauseBOOK!
CauseBOOK provides you with all of Facebook's best features with none of the agenda, compromise, or spin.
CauseBOOK provides you with a catalog of Conservative News and Media with all-in-one-place convenience. There is simply no other platform like it on the web.
With our exclusive integration with Facebook, you are able to invite like-minded friends into CauseBOOK or share CauseBOOK content on Facebook. CauseBOOK offers you the choice.
When you join CauseBOOK, you become part of a growing pool of Conservative Americans, who can now speak in one, more unified digital voice.
OK, Let's Get This Show Going...

CauseBOOK Screenshots Begin Here
Because the CauseBOOK/Facebook Integration is key to the flexibility you will have with CauseBOOK, we are showing it to you in the very first screenshot and explanation.
After this first screenshot showing you the CauseBOOK/Facebook Integration, there are two groups of
screenshots - the "expected" features of CauseBOOK that match Facebook and then,
the "unexpected" CauseBOOK features that make CauseBOOK the all-in-one-place social media, news,
and media platform for Conservative Americans.
The Facebook Integration
We will start off a bit out of order to point out the integration of CauseBOOK with Facebook. This is what permits CauseBOOK Subscribers to take advantage of both platforms, without necessarily having to give up Facebook.
In this example, we are sharing a simple photo. If you share content on Facebook today (even though they may deep-six it on you) you will recognize the standard Facebook "Share" dialog screen.
What you see here, is Facebook's program being rendered on CauseBOOK, and as you likely recognize, you can share a CauseBOOK post of any kind you choose on either your Facebook News Feed or another Friend's News Feed. And you can share that content by either selecting or de-selecting specific Facebook "Friends" or Facebook's newer category of "Acquaintances".
This cross-posting capability is unique to CauseBOOK and we will soon be announcing other networks we will be integrating with.
Now that we have covered the Integration with Facebook,
here are more of the navigations and Widgets, you will surely recognize
CauseBOOK has all the Navigations and "Suggestions" you are used to seeing and using.
It's all there, Invites you have sent or received to join CauseBOOK, or posts, Pages and Groups, that have been shared with you.
And in these screenshots, you begin to see that CauseBOOK does more with special curated Pages, Groups, Videos, and more that you can take advantage of... or not. That's entirely up to you.
In this example, you see that CauseBOOK is suggesting that you can easily access several of the "banned" or throttled Conservatives on Facebook and Twitter. This is also where we will highlight useful and effective websites and resources that you might not be familiar with.
Naturally, You Can Post And Share Content Of All Kinds
The pictures of the family reunion, a video, a survey, a Group Page you might start, news articles, audio files, and more.
And as always, you can share it within your growing CauseBOOK family and friends or feel free to cross-post content on to your Facebook Page in any of the ways we explained earlier.
This screenshot is an example of a share with a friend whose granddaughter was obsessed with the very much less than good example for our young girls and boys of "Cardi B.".
With millions of their own YouTube followers, these music videos celebrating young women who rock with the best of them proved to be the start of a new and more wholesome conversation about success without compromising your values.
CauseBOOK offers you all kinds of post types - You can upload photos, create photo Albums, share an article, a video, a website, a voice instead of a written note or create a poll and more. And remember, you can share these same posts within CauseBOOK or out to your Facebook Friends.
Posting and sharing the every day moments...
and having a little fun too.
The Classic "Selfie" and in this case, a fish story that we know is not "fake news" because we know the Author
Say hello to our intrepid John "K"... the head tech guy behind CauseBOOK and a veteran member of the CauseACTION Team.
And yeah, it's fun to tease him a bit about his love of fishing whether it is 90 degrees in Florida or he is sitting over a hole in the ice on a sub-freezing day in Vermont. The man is given to patience and persistence which are great qualities in our line of work.
... and as you can see, posts and shares of any kind provide for comments, voice responses, emojis, and more.
Now, as you would expect, NewsFeed and Timeline posts, comments, and shares are kept within your approved circle of "Friends" unless you have made a post available to all in a "Public" post.
And for the more observant among you, you might be wondering how this small, cute and terrifying dog was permitted to comment on John's most recent catch. A fair question.
Well, you would need to know that he is an Honorary Member of the CauseACTION Team and he does do some legitimate system testing for us.
With his cute, little paws, we put him in charge of testing just how well CauseBOOK's animated Emojiis were working. It turns out that he was quite adept at this and he was particularly persistent, just as he was with chasing squirrels.
Here's another kind of post - in this case, a Poll.
Here is a typical Poll or Survey we created in CauseBOOK. Once again, nothing keeps you from sharing a CauseBOOK Poll or Survey with your Facebook Friends.
Surveys can be great tools in building your Group. In this case, we're having a little fun with the subject of grocery-shopping to show you how easy and comprehensive such a survey could be in your areas of interest.
As with Facebook, Groups, and Pages have been merged together, we have done the same.
Here is a conventional General Group or "Page" with all the bells and whistles to run
an active and engaged Business, Organization, or Personal Page.
Here is a typical Group Page based on a CauseBOOK Subscriber's personal interest. We refer to these as "Public" Groups.
We call them "Public" so as to distinguish them from the specialized, "Curated" Groups, moderated by designated leaders and Key Influencers in areas such as Prolife, Second Amendment, and "culture" issues that touch on matters of sexual violence,
religious liberty, etc.
CauseBOOK Design and Goal - The Why and the How?
As you can see from the screenshots so far, CauseBOOK gives you all the conventional social media features you are accustomed to, with the unique
integration with Facebook that gives you
the flexibility you need and prefer.
From this point on in this Screenshot Review,
we will be showing you the features and content
that we think will make CauseBOOK
an easy choice of your "Go-To" Social Media Hub.
The CauseBOOK Features That Go Beyond Facebook
Since we left off showing you the "Expected" features of CauseBOOK that included a a "public" group page, let us re-start the Presentation with CauseBOOK's unique features, starting with one of the CauseBOOK Curated Groups.
Curated, Special Interest Group Pages
CauseBOOK offers Subscribers the opportunity to join curated Group Pages on subjects of interest to active Conservatives. This is where you can build up your knowledge, and if you choose, find ways to add your voice to the political and cultural issues of our lifetimes -
Anybody can participate in these Groups curated by leaders and key influencers in matters of Prolife, the 2nd Amendment, Religious Freedom, Education and so much more.

you will have access to the news as offered and constantly updated by over 25 Conservative News Publishers, Blogs, Cause, and Advocacy Groups.
And yes, these are news and opinion sources that are banned or throttled on
Facebook, Twitter, and elsewhere. We figure you can handle it.
For our purposes today, we will stop this Introductory CauseBOOK Screenshot Review here. There will be others to follow.
As you can see, CauseBOOK has a lot to offer you - it is there if you care to use its additional features and content or if you can use CauseBOOK to build out a smaller, friendlier social media platform on a more casual basis.
With the CauseBOOK's connection to Facebook, you can selectively invite the folks you choose on your Facebook Account and have them join you on CauseBOOK. We can't guarantee you absolute social media peace
but you will likely need fewer antacids.

"Continue with Facebook" bar you will see on our CauseBOOK Registration Page. That will save you some time as it will pre-populate your CauseBOOK Profile with the basic Facebook Profile information you provided to them.

And your Personal Profile Page is also an important place on your social media account. Here is a Sample Profile Page, where you can manage your permissions, privacy, posts, and much more.

OUT ON CAUSEBOOK...
IT WAS SOON AFTER KINDERGARTEN, THAT I LEARNED TO SAY "THANK YOU" AND MEAN IT.
AND SO THIS PRESENTATION CANNOT POSSIBLY END WITHOUT MY EXPRESSING MY GRATITUDE.
THANK YOU, CAUSEACTION TEAM, AND THANK YOU TO THOSE "ON THE EDGES" OF THE TEAM. THANK YOU FOR TRUSTING IN ME AND THIS MISSION, DESPITE MY FLAWS.
THANK YOU ALSO TO THE OTHER DREAMERS AND ENCOURAGERS WHO HAVE BEEN
ALONGSIDE FOR DECADES. WE KNOW THAT OUR NAME MAY BE ON THE DOOR, BUT WE ARE HARDLY THE SMARTEST OR THE MOST TALENTED IN THE ROOM. WHEN WE SUCCEED, WE DO SO BECAUSE OTHERS HAVE PUT THEIR FAITH AND TRUST IN US AND OUR "CRAZY IDEAS".
AND THIS MUCH WE ALSO KNOW - IN THE MIDST OF CHANGE AND THE WINS AND THE LOSSES,
TRUST IN A PLEDGE, IS THE KEY TO MAKING NEW THINGS HAPPEN.
TRUST THAT ENDURES IS PRICELESS.
TO THOSE OF YOU WHO ARE IF YOU ARE NEW TO THE CAUSEACTION FAMILY, WELCOME AND THANK YOU FOR CONSIDERING PLACING YOUR TRUST IN US. YOU HAVE OUR PLEDGE.
IT IS A PLEDGE THAT HAS BEEN AT THE CORE OF EVERYTHING WE HAVE DONE OVER FORTY YEARS. CAUSEACTION IS AS COMMITTED TO YOU AS WE ARE TO OUR FAMILIES,
OUR COMMUNITIES AND OUR NATION.

Kind Words From Old Friends...
"We all knew it was coming... we all knew it was long overdue for America and we all knew that you and your Team could do it... and do it well. Awesome, man. I am so pleased that CauseBOOK is now a "go"!
Jerry S. - Founder and Angel Investor
" Ha. At first, as I told you, I didn't get it - a social media platform that is an alternative to Facebook but lives in the same jungle as the 800lb. Gorilla? Even if that is what's best for Subscribers, how you gonna' do that? Well, duh. Now I see just how. Looks like I owe you that Colorado IPA brew that we bet on. Served cold, of course."
Dave M. - Your "Stands-With-Fists" Friend and Fellow Dotcom Survivor
"How often did we sing it, Brother... "Everybody wonders where you're going when you step out of line. Don't know all the answers, someone's got to stand up and say "Hey!" if you wanna' win the game then you know you're gonna' have to play". This is a winner for Team CauseACTION because it is right and it's right on time!
