RE: An Empty Social Network is an Empty World (APART)

What do you think about the evolution of social networks, and what's happening with newer ones such as this and others?

Hello there!

I think Social Networks are nothing without users who create content for them... and in the case of Steem there's a lot of potential but also a lot of problems.

I see a lot of new users being chased away from Steem not long after they join. Some of the whales seem more interested in enforcing their self-imposed rules - without even answering people what they did wrong - than to see the Network grow and thrive... and I think that attitude will come back to bit them all in the ass.

We need to educate people about what can and cannot be shared. Attacking them with flags and rude insults as soon as they join... is not the way to do it.

About the other Networks, I can't speak much. I haven't logged into Facebook for a year now... and I don't use Twitter, Instagram or anything else. Steem is the only Network where I'm active right now.

Thanks for your visit and comment.

It reminds me of the period when there were still countless search engines. Services sprang up to submit ones site to numerous search engines via one submission. Was involved with some cgi Perl scripting for one such project back in the day.

To make a decentralized social media workable, while not moving back to centralization, the approach should be back the other way. That is a tool or dApp which submits your content to all streams with one click. The photos go to instagram and so on and so forth.

In the same way this browser extension, perhaps, would scrape the social media sites it has been pointed towards and given the keys to the kingdoms and scrape one's feed.

STEEM would be a great platform to provide such a service upon.
