Where have all the fun part gone. We use to read very interesting community driven posts. We use to be excited every morning and our sleep couldn't hold us from checking our posts. We used to have moments where staying away from steemit was much more painful than fasting. If that never applied to you, it did to me. It was like a wave of enthusiasm with awe and excitement. We used to have moments when voting was done by real people. And the main chills on the platform was discovery. Now that all these are gone, whats left to drive the progress of the platform?
I think its memory and hope that the future will be bright. Bots have come to replace interactions and now he who has the most resources gets the most faked interactions. My heart is saddened yet i have to follow the way of the system now. When will the fun in this place return? Maybe this place shouldnt have a fun part and the previous times was the incubation era for the true nature.
I have been waiting for a time when we can all invite a whole family and a whole nation onto this platform with ease. I came to the platform at a time when registration took three to four days. Now things have worsened and it takes 2 to three weeks. Steemit has been an eye opener for many social media and there are alot modeled like steemit that are sprouting up. Ono, sola, litt, superior coin and many community driven social apps which will overtake steemit if we continue to neglect our foundations. Steemit is still not user friendly and account creation is too hectic for most. Ono hasnt launched internationally yet and has over 200,000 members who are unique individuals. This tells us the dawn of a new era. Steemit has to step up or will drawn in this lake of ever increasing competition. Yahoo was reluctant to grow and the name of yahoo is hardly mentioned these days.
