An experience similar to signing up for the service, adding a small number of friends, and perhaps even posting your first message.

The internet was so innocent back then.

We had a great time on Facebook since it was entertaining, educational, and useful. For those of us who like to share our opinions quickly and interact with celebrities and public figures around the world, Twitter is a great place to do it.

However, the golden era of Web2 social media has long since come to an end.

All while being constructed on a revenue model that benefits the platform rather than the creator, social media sites have become cesspools for cancellation and divide.

Social media’s glistening exterior is flaking away.

To indicate how they’re “changing,” social media companies like to release huge announcements, with edgy graphics, that show how they’re “not going to lead us down the same path.”

But they’ve lost our confidence, and we’re not sure why.

So why should we trust systems whose only objective is making money and keeping you hooked? Twitter and Facebook were founded with the goal of creating the internet and connecting people from all over the world, but they allowed their own egos get in the way of running their platforms.

In order to maximize profits, social media platforms should not be run behind closed doors with complicated terms and conditions that result in the user’s detriment. Having faith in our social media platforms is essential. There must be a consistent application of rules and equitable monetization for creators.

Social media networks must be repaired.

As the globe wakes up to the dangers of centralization, people are shunning Web2 social media services. For the future of humanity, we need to develop an environment that empowers users rather than simply a few powerful tech executives to dictate their own destiny.

Is it even feasible to do this? Yes, we can repair it, but we must do it by using Web3’s full potential.

In Web3, we are given the potential to reshape the Internet and the world. With a little work, we can bring social media back to its former glory. These include things like sharing interesting material, ensuring that community rules are clear, and most crucially, rewarding users for their participation.

Solcial: Leveraging Web3 to create the social media of the future

With the likes of DeFi and Play2Earn, we’ve already seen what Web3 can do. Using the decentralized power of blockchain, we are reimagining social media with a new and better approach here at Solcial.

Decentralization is transferring authority away from a few and providing it to the many by prioritizing user experience.

To be a free thinker, Solcial is the best choice.

Solcial is for those who wish to change the internet.

Solcial is for you if you wish to change our existing social media society.

However, Solcial may not be for you if you wish to suppress individuals with whom you disagree, preserve the status quo online, and give over all of your data…

In the meanwhile, keep your web2 platforms active so that we can keep the community up to date as we prepare for launch. We look forward to elaborating on how various features operate on Social in the coming future. Friends, the time for change is now. There is a way to reform social media, and we will do it together.

The future is in our hands, therefore let’s reclaim it for ourselves!

On Solana, Solcial is establishing a decentralized social network where content producers may be compensated equitably at market value and without the need for a third-party intermediary.
