Don't you hate it when the social media companies throttle your views?

in #steemfoundation2 years ago

If you're like me you've been using social media for years. For the last decade we've been posting our thoughts, things we see, and our opinions on the world around us. But lately something strange has been happening. For the last few years it seems like any view that the ultra liberal San Francisco tech companies don't like somehow gets banned, shadowbanned, throttled back, or demonetized. Is that fair? I might not like what others have to say, but should they be banned from saying it?

Well, if you're frustrated by that too you should check out Steem! That's right, Steem! Steem is a blockchain, and on that blockchain your speech is immutable. No one can take away your right to say anything. All your speech is recorded on the blockchain and preserved indefinately. There's no such thing as banning you. Your posts will reach all your followers. And even when people disagree it's usually pretty respectful.

Give it a try yourself. There's a few different places to start:

Go to to get a free account
Go to and click signup to find paid and free ways to signup
Go to and click signup and get access to a trading card game while you're at it
Go to and click signup even if all you have is a facebook account
Go to and signup there with a credit card

We have lots to do and one blockchain account unlocks a whole bunch of different apps. Give steem a shot and experience a system where your free speech is protected by the whole network!

If you want to learn more come talk to our community of thousands of people who like to chill in Discord.

Today the Steem Foundation (via @shadowspub and I) hosted a ramble style discussion. The focus was on marketing. I'll have more thoughts coming up, but wanted to showcase one example of how discussions around marketing could lead to messaging that resonates with target demographics. This pitch could be a short youtube commercial going out to anyone that searches for "demonetization or shadowbanning." I see it as a simple youtube ad that plays.


On steem you get throttled by whales. How is speech protected again?

Steem provides community based self-regulation of speech with no outright censorship. Content is always available on the blockchain but content that the community as a whole (with wide ranging and diverse opinions) deems unacceptable will have less prominence and may not earn rewards.
This is not censorship.

No, on steem no one can silence you. On steem interfaces, like steemit, they can flag you but no whale is stronger than the whole community.

I understand that it is simply a set back or a temporary station. I find many people are stingy with their votes and wont flag whales that abuse their station. The bot wars seem to have subsided but many steemians are irreversibly damaged after such battles for truth in speech.

ALSo If you need a FREE Steem Ninja account I have 2000 so ask me, Ill allocate lets say... 50 or even 100 to the first real people who come asking me for accounts.. you can have one for yourself, backup, project, family friend, as long as you USE steem, and need this account, just text me for the invite 619 500 3748 (see what i did there? text me for the link, harder to fake a text :) ) But yeah I know its still gamable but yeah account creation, its the great big question rigt now!

ALSO, Infowars Token! Infowars needs our help
Discord for Infowars Blockchain
so I have created a placeholder to raise funds for a tribe which, i will reserve a spot for Alex Jones if he decides to come BACK to steem since he once visited steemit inc HQ in Austin back in 2017 @adept told me before he passed away so I can tell everyone now but I mean yeah, we were close to having Alex Jones SMt anyway, I feel Alex has said he is cool letting people use Infowars logo as long as you are reinvesting any profits you happen to mke back into the INFOWAR and I will be doing just that and emailing infowars @lukeredowski @pauljosephwatson @laurensouthern who else joined steem who knows alex... a lot of people @keiserreport @staceyherbert etc

anyway yeah max keiser @keiserreport and Joe Rogan will be so proud of me one day for buildingteh next gen blockchain news system :)

Infowars is a gatekeeper. Republic Broadcasting Network FTW

in Steem epidemic of censorship from moderators who cannot read.

  • and at a typo?

You are on point about censorship, once one is used to steem you usually find it difficult to stay in other social media's

Seems like Steemit is a really liberal platform. It's interesting that the ideas of all users can be preserved in it, not deleted for good. Can Steemit detect spammers too? Because most users that user verbal abusing or bullying are fake.
