 Can social networks use block chains and tokens to solve FBs privacy problems?


NetEase news on April 25th, according to Futurism, although the number of users around the world is still growing, many users in the United States are withdrawing from the world, according to Futurism. For users who are tired of rough policies and misuse of trust, the Cambridge analysis company (CambridgeAnalytica) misuse of data scandals has become the last straw. But the question now is: what is Facebook instead of? Some users try to turn to other platforms, leaving behind the business model of Facebook. One of the biggest of these new platforms is called Minds. The platform was founded in 2015, and as more and more people are looking for a viable alternative to Facebook, the popularity of Minds seems to be rising in order to avoid the Sauron figure in search of data. According to wired magazine, Minds has about 1 million users and 110 thousand active users. On the surface, Minds seems to be very similar to Facebook and other social networks that people are familiar with. It has the recommended function, there are many posts in it, other users can comment, vote up and so on. But the code that it runs is completely different. Minds runs on a decentralized network, relying on the contribution of the user - support, comment, or sharing, rather than selling their data to the dark third parties. So, if Im on Minds for my favorite band, Ill have more tokens in my account (as opposed to Facebook, Facebook will sell a lot of my data to third parties, but this will only make it make money). At present, these tokens do not really mean anything. They are also brownie points (Browniepoint). But now, the idea is to turn them into a new encryption currency so that they can become real world currencies in the future. Despite the good reputation, the number of users is increasing, but Minds is unlikely to become the next Facebook. It is still a fairly small platform, lacking the appeal of other popular social media networks, and these social networks have been deeply embedded in our lives. When I registered for Minds, the only thing I could see was the history of Rome emperor Nero (Nero) and the strange posts of many animated incarnations. This reminds me of the early days of GooglePlus, and we know how it took off. But the core principle behind the Minds network is strong. A decentralized social network is developed directly through user interaction and mutual support, which sounds more than a million times better than a huge social network company offers your data to an evil third party entity. But this is also ambitious and idealistic. Its survival depends on the continuous efforts of users. Without a growing community, the system will easily collapse automatically. Moreover, if encryption money is not widely used, it is almost impossible for content creators to believe that they are valuable. Before competition with Facebook, Minds may need to keep a low profile, but its momentum is growing. Altman said: it is very important to register, or even to experience support. If users do not benefit from their own data, other companies may benefit from such information, so that Minds can not achieve real success.
