πŸ‘‹ Hi From Hive πŸ‘¨β€πŸ’» For My Facebook Friends 🎁

in Hi From Hive β€’ last month (edited)

To my friends on Facebook, I would like to explain why I use another social media outlet more often, the HIVE Blockchain.

What Is The Hive Blockchain?

Β  Β  Β The word "blockchain" has become a bit of a buzzword over the last few years, although it seems only a small percentage of people who have heard the term have a basic understanding of blockchain technology.

Β  Β  Β "Hive" is simply the name of this blockchain-based decentralized social media outlet, and therefore we have the "Hive Blockchain." The cool thing about Hive is that you don't even need to understand blockchain technology to start making some new international friends and earning some money.

Β  Β  Β Yes, I did say "earn money," but I will explain that in more detail very soon, as I honestly don't think that's the coolest thing about Hive. To keep this post short and simple, here is a quick comparison of Facebook and the Hive Blockchain.

Β  Β  Β Your passwords are a series of random characters on Hive, and unfortunately not customizable, but that's part of the security it brings. There is no censorship on Hive, which can be a positive or negative depending on how one views censorship. You can mute individual users and mute posts from communities, but no one can sensor your personal blog on Hive.

Β  Β  Β I like that I am not bombarded with customized and targeted ads like I am on Facebook, and glad Hive hasn't deceived any users about privacy rules. Everything is public on Hive, and that may be good or bad, depending on how you look at it. Many Hivers choose to remain anonymous, and others choose to verify their profiles, that's the beauty of the freedom we have with Hive.

It's Not Just Social Media

Β  Β  Β PeakD is where I spend most of my time on Hive, and I would oversimplify it by calling it a cross between Reddit and Medium, but it's much more than that, trust me. A lot of the energy I used to put into Facebook now goes here, and I try to post at least once a day, but my posts are more similar to articles, usually containing several pictures and more than 500 words.

Β  Β  Β Facebook is where I have access to friends from highschool, family, and other various friends I've made that are now scattered throughout the world, and for that reason I will never abandon it entirely. PeakD is where I share my content, as well as find engaging posts and make friends that I want to meet in "real-life."

3SPEAK
(Unsupported https://3speak.co/embed?v=justinparke/qmrjbbtm)

Β  Β  Β Hive's decentralized answer to YouTube is 3Speak, and I also create video content on this platform. 3Speak videos are monetized in the same way blog posts published from PeakD are, a very easy process to learn.

Β  Β  Β With YouTube's increasingly complicated monetization polices and censorship rules, platforms like 3Speak are likely the future of video hosting. There are lots of awesome content creators on 3Speak from all over the world, and you can watch anything from cooking videos to travel vlogs and conspiracy theories.

SPLINTERLANDS

Β  Β  Β The Hive Blockchain can host just about any digital creation its imaginative users can dream up. Believe it or not, gaming is the biggest force driving Hive, and Splinterlands is hands-down king of Hive games.

Β  Β  Β From my point-of-view as a non-gamer, Splinterlands reminds me of Magic the Gathering, but of course it's digital and has it's own Hive-based crypto token, and even the cards themselves are monetized and tradable. This means when you decide to stop playing the game, you could sell your cards and convert the profits to HIVE.

Hi From Hive Indeed

Β  Β  Β It's a fun platform I highly recommend you explore. Our whole family blogs on the Hive Blockchain, and even Srey-Yuu and Sakana create content via their @KidSisters profile. I think blogging is a really awesome way for kids to learn valuable computer skills, practice language skills, and so much more.

There's Money Too

Β  Β  Β The financial incentive isn't the main reason to join Hive, people already use and post on Facebook without any monetization. With Hive, the financial incentive does cause most users to create higher quality posts than you would find on Facebook News Feed, and that's definitely a draw for me.

Β  Β  Β My account value is nearly $2,000 after, and even my 11 year-old daughter's account is worth nearly $200. There is a potential HIVE could be a major crypto token one day, and we could see our accounts quadruple in value, and I must say, the future is bright.

Want To Join?

Β  Β  Β There are several ways to claim a username and corresponding account passwords. You can use my referral link or sign up here too.

Β  Β  Β I'd love to see some content from on Hive from my Facebook friends, as it would make Hive a little more homely. I'm glad to answer any questions you have, just send me a message and I'm glad to help.

In the chart comparing Facebook to Hive, I think the column headings are switched 😬

I checked, all seems good, maybe just a little confusing. I meant to highlight the fact that Hive doesn't censor posts or deliver targeted, some huge negatives that Facebook has. Although I could imagine some folks would not be interested in a platform without censorship.

Thanks for the heads-up, I think I had "customize passwords" flipflopped. !BEER

Thank you for your engagement on this post, you have recieved ENGAGE tokens.

Thanks for putting Suriname on the Hi From Hive map, we need more pins in more countries to show the world the breadth of Hive users.

This is a great comparison of Hive with traditional social media that most are used to, it's basically Hive vs multiple social medias. And you failed to mention the power of Hive and how @kidsister got on national TV in Surname because of Hive!!!!

Yes, give thanks for this cool community and initiative too.

I'm not sure how long that pin will be in Suriname, so that's why I made it fits anywhere kind of post.

I held off on the TV mention because I'd like to have Srey-Yuu make her own Hi From Hive post very soon, perhaps include both of her TV appearances as well as some of her 3Speak content.

Lately we've been working on how to create sections within a post by varying the font size, bold font, coming up with section titles, etc. It's all been a bit intimidating, but she's getting the hang of it. I think within a year this kiddo will be overflowing with posting ideas, and be able to to transfer it to the fingertips with ease.

@Sreypov and the @KidSisters will have some Hive From Hive posts very soon, stay tuned........

This is a really cool explanation and understanding i hope more people read this a get on board Facebook is simply just a waste of time and effort use that on Hive instead me real people have fun and earn a bit of money along the way sounds cool ...yeah..indeed it does 😊

As long as Facebook is the most trouble-free to stay in touch with close friends and family from Cambodia, the USA, and many other places, I'll unfortunately be a part of Facebook.

Ultimately Facebook has just become a messaging service to me, a place where I share Hive links, and once or twice a month I post some family photos to keep everyone happy.

Hive is definitely way more engaging, and the money aspect can be appealing, especially to those living in developing countries. !ENGAGE 25
