Is it the end of long lasted social media control?

in #ethereum4 years ago

Facebook, Twitter, Youtube - these are the names that pop-up to our mind when we think about social media. The media that more than a decade controlled what you see, what you think and often what you buy. By targetting you with numerous ads specifically designed based on the content that you like.

Everyone knows that, but no one does anything only recently Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had a senate hearing. Because people have a right to know how their private information is used.

But I think we found a solution

Blockchain and blockchain technology is not about the Cryptocurrencies only; it is not Bitcoin, Ethereum, etc. It is MORE; it is about privacy, it is about our right to have control over our identity.

More and more creators are leaving the mainstream social media and switching to a blockchain-based platforms

The less centralized platforms keep more power—and potentially, privacy—in the hands of creators and users”, says Ned Scott, who runs the Steem-based social network Steemit.

As well there is an alternative for youtube as well called DTube. It encourages video creators with donations from viewers instead of ad revenue.

Or LBRY which shouts for content freedom!

LBRY is a free, open, and community-run digital marketplace. You own your data. You control the network. Indeed, you are the network. States the creators of LBRY.

So let's bring down the mainstream media which has only one goal to control and earn as much as possible from their users.

And hope that Blockchain media creators won't get greedy.
