My Little Book:

Steemit, Hive, Facebook, Twitter

The landscape of blogging and social media is changing. We are seeing twitter flex its muscle and Facebook making another push for Libra. Kind of makes the battle between Steemit and Hive seem a bit small.

These were the thoughts that tugged on me to take on a new project. I tend to use Whaleshares when feeling more creative. This is where you might have first seen the accompanying image (with different text). I like it and may use it for a series of investigations.

Below you will find ideas about each platform. Some were already touched upon in my initial post. I also expect to create another version of this post for Hive. Moving forward with the investigation will likely bring Tron into the mix on my Steemit posts and the divergence between the chains on Hive.

Let me know what you think.

Facebook's Libra Seems to be Chugging Along

The Libra project is still alive. Zuckerberg recently discussed its future at the annual shareholder meeting. He's apparently taken an opposing position to twitter. Consider how the Libra announcement coincides with the main stream media's discussion about twitter fact checking. A battle in the political arena may even have already begun.

This is important to crypto because most experts believe that the limitation is mass adoption. Libra (or a twitter crypto) could threaten Bitcoin in ways we haven't seen yet.

Twitter Remains an Unmatched Widget

Twitter seems the easiest to figure out. Consider how easy it is to send someone Brave coins. I've done it. All I needed was to know another user with the Firefox add-on. The Brave tip icon discreetly appears next to the like button. A pretty nifty innovation.

Twitter's technological development around the 140 character limit is brilliant. There's always going to be a need for rapid messaging. Competition from Facebook Messenger and others will seek to take its place. Though, twitter's strength is as a dedicated service in brevity.

Consider the communication speeds needed by politicians, businesses, news outlets, emergency services, etc. Information urgency may even help twitter displace text and phone service as antiquated when compared to future internet infrastructure.

Steemit and Hive: A Battle to be Won?

Steemit is the only crypto medium that (I found) resulted in pratical financial returns- alas, almost insignificant. The few meals that it did afford me inspired hope. In regards to SteemVsHive, Maybe the single greatest influence in the conflict will be the Tron factor.

Curiosity is actually what inspired this post. Well that and the fact that I just reorganized my crypto life to be fully accessible via mobile. It's made a world of difference.

My short term plans involve the exploration of how these platforms differ.

Concluding Thoughts


Hopefully the existing crypto writing/artistic community can push to improve the status quo.

We need to be weary of not being blinded by the same agendas plaguing Facebook, twitter and other fiat-based platforms. Hopefully, when the time comes, social blockchains will grow into something more than a butler for the advertising world.

Interesting your publication, and your views! I think that all 4 are very powerful platforms, especially facebook that has been around for years.

I'm sure Facebook brings something powerful powerful to attract and keep people.It will surely have something to do with offering a fiat-crypto pair, what which would be great, being able to exchange your crypto for local currency in just one click.Regarding steemit vs hive, I think they underestimate the years of steemit experience, and in this he has an enormous advantage.Hivelovers will surely attack this messenger, but my opinion is based on what years of experience give the necessary wisdom to face anything. I liked your post, quite interesting

I agree that Facebook will bring something to the table as far as crypto. I'm just concerned that the long-term implications may be negative.

And I also thank you're right about the Steemit experience but I'm wondering if the influence of Justin sun will erase some of that. Initially, I heard that Tron aimed to gut our platform for bloggers.

The Libra project is still alive. Zuckerberg recently discussed its future at the annual shareholder meeting

Wow! That's really good to hear. Everyone almost thought the project is dead even though everyone was really eager for the Facebook crypto partnership with libra since it's really gonna bring more exposure to cryptos and blockchain technology.

But I still can't tell the specific reason why Mark isn't partnering with Bitcoin or other well known cryptos for the project to be built under them. It seems he's planning to develop his own blockchain system.

Twitter's technological development around the 140 character limit is brilliant. There's always going to be a need for rapid messaging. Competition from Facebook Messenger and others will seek to take its place

The astonishing part of it all is that Twitter happens to one of the top most used social media platform with active users. This is why different things keep trending on the platform every hour and it's also one of the fastest app to convey information to the masses.

Well that and the fact that I just reorganized my crypto life to be fully accessible via mobile. It's made a world of difference.

Accessing blockchain technology through mobile phones has really made it easier for users. People are now able to earn and transact with their mobile phones very easily and comfortable.

Thanks for sharing this great post with love from @hardaeborla and I hope you have a great day ahead

Mark might just consider Bitcoin to be small potatoes. Twitter really is interesting isn't it.

Twitter has really grown to be a place for matured and babies, it is not just a place to flaunt flashy lifestyles but to shared valid news and information.

Right, and no other platform really has cut into its market share. I know we can now have Facebook messenger and other similar things but they don't seem that much of a competition for Twitter.
