First Steemit Meetup and a Web Browser
I attended my first Steem meetup today, thanks to @mariannewest! It was nice to talk to actual Steemians IRL (in real life) and hear their unique perspectives on using the platform. Also present were @bxlphabet and @csusbgeochem1.
There was a lot to learn. First, it was such a great reminder of the diversity of Steemians, as each one of us had different interests that brought us to Steem, and different strengths to offer. I often forget that Steemians are not always as into cryptocurrency as I am.
Second, I learned about a social network called TSU that many Steemians migrated from. Any former TSU users out there? I don't know much about it, but I'd never even heard of it before, and I think looking into it will give me an opportunity to see some of the challenges Steem might face. I'll get back to you if I find anything of interest.
The Ad Free Web Browser You Need
For the past 6 months or so, I've almost exclusively used the Brave browser on my phone. I also use it for about 70% of my desktop browsing.
The Brave browser automatically blocks those annoying ads you get when web browsing...you know, the videos that pop up and automatically play? I can't stand those, and they drain battery power and data (I have an 8 GB plan). Many websites today are built to optimize the amount of ads viewed (because that affects the site's revenue), which is why you'll often see Top 10 articles that have one photo per page (instead of all ten on one).
My experience using Brave on my smart phone is outstanding. It is my default browser, and was very easy to switch over to. If you haven't started using the Brave browser yet, please click here (or the icon below) to download it for free. Note: I'll also get a few BAT tokens, which is the cryptocurrency behind the browser.
The Brave browser disempowers companies like Google that use your data for their own revenue. That alone is a reason to download it today.
