The failure of the social media model is becoming increasingly evident. Following a series of incidents, it is clear that social media companies are prioritizing shareholder profits and business interests over customer safety. If you were to do this in banking, you would likely risk jail time or at the very least a hefty fine and regulatory censorship. The spotlight is on decentralized social media, but what needs to happen for it to get the traction it needs to compete with the size and reach of centralized social behemoths?

We’ve seen how Facebook sold our data to Cambridge Analytica to sway voters, how it allowed Myanmar’s military to spread misinformation and hate on its platform, resulting in the murder of Rohingya Muslims, and how it didn’t. did nothing to verify the fake news spread by many political parties around the world. We also saw how Twitter’s suspension of Trump’s account sparked outrage over the platform’s “free speech” policies. While some may argue this was justified in light of rising anti-government sentiment, it nonetheless raises major ethical questions about the power of social media, such as whether moderation and takedown decisions should be left to a few influencers in Silicon Valley or not.

While big tech legislation is still catching up, technology brings the next solution to this problem: the decentralization of social media (and Twitter is also on board). Blockchain or open source technology platforms have grown, and the role of decentralized social networks in solving many of the problems that big tech is currently facing is becoming increasingly important.

A decentralized social network has various characteristics that make it stand out from traditional social media platforms. The first major distinction is that this is not just one website you can visit; rather, it is a network of hundreds of communities, each of which owns a copy of the code. Second, you can make your instance as public or private as you want – you can connect with users from other instances, even cross-platform.

Blockchain has the ability to create a system that monetizes the creation and use of content while simultaneously protecting consumers from government control. In such an environment, user data would be safe and secure, and shared content would be authentic. The goal of a decentralized social media platform should be to use an open and decentralized social network to bring people’s interests together and facilitate economic transactions. Moreover, the initiative aims to add value to any creative product by allowing users to enhance their talents while simultaneously creating a direct and decentralized link between audiences and content providers.

What makes decentralized social networks the future of Web 3.0?

Users of popular social networking sites are inundated with ads that impact their personal lives. Their browsing habits are meticulously recorded and monetized without their knowledge. This is where companies like Viblos bring value to users by creating a token social media network that compensates social media users for their participation.

The best thing about platforms like this is that they allow creators to monetize their work by allowing them to earn tokens equivalent to major cryptocurrencies. A decentralized social media platform allows users to share and monetize their works in a transparent, secure and proven way.

According to MarketingDive, 40% of users are wary of traditional social media advertising. These concerns can be addressed and marketers can benefit from social media marketing by using a decentralized and disintermediated social network. Thanks to its model of algorithmic transparency and tokenization, there are platforms that allow marketers and entrepreneurs to communicate and engage with organic communities.
