Accept it, we’re not merely social network users, but we’re becoming a product of the social networks that we use. All the major social networks like Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and others are free apps — but we are paying for it with data and with identities. In fact, social networks are increasingly asking us to share more and more parts of our lives. Even Messenger services now have a function that lets us share “moments” of our daily lives. But how about those of us who merely want to connect, communicate, and keep in touch, all without being tracked? Here’s where I think blockchain technology can make a big difference. By combining a decentralized consensus mechanism with a private and secure platform for exchanging messages and information, we might be able to finally get connected without the risk of exposing too much to those who own the platforms.
