The Steemit Social Media Ecosystem (Part 1)

Today, we use platforms like Youtube, Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, other social media and chat platforms and job search engines.  When I get a double-tap on Insta 100 times on a photo I won't lie I get pretty excited.  You know what excites me even more? When my photo on Steepshot gets a "like" or an "upvote".

Why?

Because I get paid.  

Equivalents to the "centralized" internet economy within the "decentralized" Internet 2.0

Within Internet 2.0, you'll find a plethora of un-censored, ad-free, community driven, and transparent societal platforms.  Steemit is one of many platforms emerging within the decentralized universe (the "Dverse"). If you're not familiar with Steemit, stay tuned for more articles by @missventurous and explore Steemit help articles for minnows.  

Below are my favorite Steemit-related and Decentralized Equivalents to other pre-existing centralized website services.  Some of these websites connect to Steemit in a sense that if you post to them, it'll show up on your Steemit feed and you can earn Steem on those platforms too!

We're going to go through the equivalents of the following platforms in:

"The Steemit Social Media Ecosystem: Part 1": Youtube, Soundcloud, Instagram, Twitter, Live Streams, and Facebook and their decentralized, income producing counterparts!

1) Youtube ---> D.Tube

D.Tube is the first crypto-decentralized video platform, built on top of the STEEM Blockchain and the IPFS peer-to-peer network... D.Tube aims to become an alternative to YouTube that allows you to watch or upload videos on IPFS and share or comment about it on the immutable STEEM Blockchain, while earning cryptocurrency doing it. - D.TUBE

*When you post your videos to the DTube Platform, they will automatically be uploaded to your Steemit blog!*

2) SoundCloud ---> DSound

Dsound is a decentralized application developed by @prc which allows us to upload, download, and listen to music just like Soundcloud.  This is an great news for music lovers who wish to earn as well.  DSOUND is a database powered by STEEM (from Steemit) so, it allows us to earn rewards.  You can listen to different categories of trending, new and hot music, podcasts, and more!

I love that you map key apps in the Steem ecosystem to the corresponding advertising-driven, corporate-owned app they are disrupting. It is easy for newcomers to Steem to get caught up in the technical aspects of the ecosystem. Instead, you are shining a bright light on what really matters here. We're at the dawn of the age of the de-centralized internet -- one that holds the potential to radically shift the power dynamic to people... but only if we claim it!
