RE: My story about Steemit for Backchannel: 'The Social Network Doling Out Millions in Ephemeral Money'

in #steemit4 years ago

Nice Andrew! It's succinct and pointed enough to pique someone's interest.

User-generated content, the authors argued, had created billions of dollars of value for the shareholders of social media companies. Yet while moguls like Mark Zuckerberg got rich, the content creators who fueled networks like Facebook got nothing

This is a powerful message, and one that resonates with a certain kind of folk =)

Upvoted ur comment to 45.55 hey man @itchykitten so youre back now?? I expect to see you posting everyday man! You GOTTA! We need people like you man, u gotta just keep posting your daily life! u gotta just post post post man you had it DOWN in your first post! super long posts with lots of photos! i remember your mini home on wheels u made! I wish we could see more of that!

You gotta start posting a LOT man! come on the discord chat and come chat or voicechat with us steemspeak.com its @fyrtsikkens 's chatroom for everyone on steemit to mingle and its a great place to meet wha;les and witnesses nd steemit employees i even have met some Steemit executives like @sneak there who dropped some early news about some secret new features and also told us about the new steemit app comin out, when that gets announcedby the execs the price of steem will spiek again just liek with the smart media tokns announcement!

anyway man u should post everyday again u seem to get viral FASt here and we need you man!

Now about Facebook, remember, facebook at around 300 billion is around 1000x the marketcap of steemit which is like 300 million dollars so when steemit gets as big as facebook we will see steem go up 1000 times from $1 to $1000 and anyone with $1000 in steemit will have $1 million dollars! Way better than owning shares of facebook stock!

And there WILl come a day when Facebook asks to "buy" steemit and after we turn them down with teh answer of how they phsyically cant buy it,they will just think we are p;ayuing hardball and theyll just keep offering a bigger and bigger ampunt untill someone just tels them to simply buy steempower LOL and then they will and theyll be stuck helping the price of steem go up like crazy! If someone bought like all the steem there is to buy, probobly what a few million? the price would go way up and they would have to then WAIt for someone to come and sel some steem to be able to hve any! Thats the SECRET of steem and its price and WHY it is valuable! people who get paid get paid in SBD and so that gets traded internaly and on exchanges but hah the steem is actually being purchased more than its being sold, if u look atthe graphs, so interesting, the state of the steem network posts i believe that show like how much steem is sold and boughte veryday and i mean ifpeople are just seling mor ethan they buy that means the porice of steem would be faling which was hwta happebed from the beginning last summer to marcgh of this year just a drop because more were simply selinga nd cashing out than ever powering up but NOW the amount of steem owned by believers in steemit is over the majority fo steem because the price of steem never seems to drop below 1 dollar so basically no one wants to let it get cheaper than 41 because peopel start buying it up as being REALy cheap when it goes below $1...it never goes below $1 and never really getrs to like 90 or 80 cents for very long because someone instantly buys some up to get that deal! And the $1 price being like a constant is because the people selling dont have anything left to sell! hahah see when you have steemit whales who believe in steemit holding most of al the steem , then they can just refuse to sell any of it and just help keep theprice to go up up up and also people just dont get that steem is boughta nd sold like bitcoin and steem is also mined like bitcoin but not proof of work just proof of stake with delegation, and DPOS delegated proof of stake is very new and effcient and will alow steem do keep itself free of transaction fees and simply a mroe useful crypto currency for things liek microtransactions or obviously for social media but jere is the deal, steemit is new and not many people use steemit compatred to redit or facebook BUt to say there arent many people yusing steemit is a godamn lie. To think that even 100,000 people is not a lot of people is so arogant! And there are around 300,000 to 400,000 accounts on steemit now and even if half of them are individual people , or even if you use the only 30K active users a day stat, that is still pretty amazing that in just a year we gorta brand new social media of the ground with basically no advertising and using the users to advertise and that they "willed" over a quarter of a billion dollars into existence and THAT should be our selling point! Let people talk shit and let the insecure naysay and question it! They will see that steem is going to remain valuable and that YES That 300 Million to 400 million marketcap is accurate and real ! some people incorrectly believe that crypto is only "real" when it gets translate into your fake fiat bank account LOL such a lost perspective! Steem will only impress us and we should all take courseson internet mareketing and pay for youtube ad roll viodeos to p[romote steemit just like @jerrybanfield did on youtube and facebook ! You use the rewards from your steemit poist to pay for ads to promote your own steemit page (and steemit itseklf of course at the same time!) and you end up getting new followers AND paying for teh ad using money from steemit so in a way it can not cost you anything!

Wow! That's quite the welcome message Ackza. Thanks =) I do intend to be posting more...It's been exciting to see everyone. I'm not thinking much about the price of steem. It's gonna do what it's gonna do, and I just want to write.

I was really sad after ChanChan got hit by a car =( Anyway, looking forward to being around here more often, thanks for the great welcome back!

Yes, remember that you are not safe with Facebook, you work so they can suck the profit out of you and therefore they sell your privacy to marketing agencies to spam you with all kind of ads so you can spend your money online.
Facebook has become online shop instead of social media site, that's why people must gather and join Steemit. It's benefitical for all.

That is the really good site

Less and less people are using Facebook because better alternatives already exist. If Facebook doesn't change their tactics, soon people stop using it because none of the interesting people are active anymore. I see a lot of accounts of for example celebrities where all the posts are actually written in Instagram or using apps that aggregate external blog posts. A good test is to comment on someone's Facebook profile or page and count how many hours or days it takes to get a response other than a mere like. Some people just batch like all comments on their Facebook, Instagram and Twitter posts to make followers and friends think they are really active. What matters to other people is the quality of the actual replies to the comments or that "friends" actually comment back something meaningful in your own posts.

I wasted my time on facebook posting, sharing and liking hot chicks and never rewarded or compensated.
Steemit platform is better or the best currently.

What if the porn industry will follow Steemit platform?

good idea! write a post about how pornhub or xhamster could use steem blockchain to allow users to submit porn that people couldn't remove and that people could profit from and maybe we could make it a hard fork of the steem blockchain , NSFW steemit post is all yours! write a long post about it! thats how u start getting yourself a big following!

And soon you will be getting rewarded for liking photos of hot chicks on steemit!

No need to hard fork, wait for SMTs to come out and make your PORN token.

nice! steem cam token to pay the cam girls lol

We already are, as well as other similar platforms, pre-empting the Establishment's plan to do away with cash. After all, we ARE the oldest profession, and no-one's going to stop us plying our trade.

You're right. I think so too.
