So here it's how it starts."We do not support your business model" lol
WE DO NOT SUPPORT YOUR'S EITHER
Of course, taking advantage of content creators and not giving anything back in return is the business model that you guys on Facebook prefer :)
BeScouted is visual content creation community that works on STEEM blockchain and rewards users for the visual content that they create and share.
We have been pushing hard to develop or solution with a bootstrapped startup on top of STEEM blockchain and since then have gained your support and got a lot of nice feedback regarding our solution up to the point where we have managed to raise a round of private investment. Investment in order to create a platform and marketplace where all visual content creators get rewarded for the time and effort they put into creation of quality visual content.
More than that we are developing various tools that help to network better and create visual content easier, faster and make it a much more pleasant process while giving talents increased exposure that they deserve.
Such giants as "FACEBOOK" that very recently underwent a scandal of not being able to protect personal user data entrusted to them which has been exploited in numerous ways are not happy at all when there are attempts to reward users for the content that they create and time and effort people spend for doing so. At the approximate evaluation of 500 billion they are fat and happy profiting from all the content it's users create and giving nothing back in return, while collecting your personal and private data which they can not even manage properly.
They want to be the only ones that benefit from your hard work covering themselves and hiding in different terms and conditions that are constantly changing, would require and lawyers education to understand and numerous hours to read.
This was our attempt, to launch a small paid marketing campaign on Facebook to let people know of BeScouted and Steemit to get more quality content creators on the blockchain where they are fairly (in most cases) compensated for their time and effort.
This add did not speak anything about any upcoming ICO (even though we are preparing for an SMT sale) or anything that was suggesting buying cryptocurrency or any other form of asset. Just an informative message about an opportunity to get rewarded for the content that all of us create.
But FACEBOOK cut it short in plain and simple way. ABOLISH
We are sick and tired of that selfish behavior, constant censorship, exploitation of content creators and limiting freedom of speech and self expression that is a birth right to each of us.
We will continue on our solution, that will allow freelancers all over the world to work and create together, get hired by brands, businesses and companies directly without the middlemen and reward content creators and return up to 100% of the value back to them. As THIS IS OUR MISSION.
If you support us in our endeavor please share this post, so everybody knows (though we believe almost everybody already does) how big companies are treating initiatives to help freelancers and content creators to lead dignified lives, without robbing them or taking completely unfair advantage of their work.
They can silence us on their platform, but they can not silence us on STEEMIT and decentralized blockchain.
