The old chain
The other day, I saw this chain and I had to jump out of my car to picture them. I just like the rusty metal which seems to be in the sun and with all the weather since a while.
The definition of old
This picture of rust went a few days through my head and I was forming a story around this, as the chains itself transport for me something old, something not breakable but as well something which is out of business and now looking for a new job.
Then, the next morning, you know in which room, I finally had the idea to my story and more or less to what I’m doing now in the past 3 month. Get rid of my shackle.
The value of your work
I got more and more rid of my Facebook and Instagram “chain” and started blogging and posting my day by day pictures on Steemit. Today I still post two activities to my Facebook friends, but different ones.
So, for me, this chains are the old way of doing social networks where it was a big social business for a very few and only fun for us.
Zuck had / got a wonderful idea of forming the first big business in social media where we all are willing to send him his fuel for free.
The new way of social
Now, the block chain technology allows a decentral way to running a social network, where all people together form the systems. Everybody can be a part and even more important, everybody is getting a little bit back from the big business as now we fuel our own small business with our own content.
Business with Social is expensive
Even more important, if you ever try to promote an event, a fair or just something you like to make more knows, Zuck ask such a huge amount from you to get your business idea visible in the network you fuelled such a long time. Is this fair? Yes, if you call it a social business as than one giant company earns.
Up into a new world
To throw away valuable content like pictures or stories is or shouldn't be state of the art.
Try to get rid of this old behavior in your day by day business and let your old thinking get the rusty feeling as the world is changing.
New things to learn
A few seconds after I took the picture of the old chain, I saw some little stones and did this little tower of stones. I don't know how long it will exist, but I enjoyed it a lot.
A new world with new tools means new behavior and a lot new to learn. For many people this means leaving the comfort zone but for me this is a journey into the future and I'm happy to learn.
