Hello everyone,it’s Muhammad kasib here and am so happy to partake in this week’s crypto assignment on “Decentralized and Centralized Social Media” by professor @yousafharoonkhan and i must say it was such a great lecture and I really enjoyed it.
So let’s get started,
Decentralized Social Media
This is a type of social media which is not controlled or owned by a higher authority or is can be said as the type of social media that is run independently.With this type of social media users control and run their own accounts the way they want it and it is a transparent form of social media hence everything is fair and square .Example of this type of social media include ;Steemit,minds and so on with many more still under development.
Centralized social mediaCentralized social media is a type of social media which is owned and controlled by an authority.With this type of social media decisions and actions are taken by Central authoriity hence theauthority controlss all it's activiies.Example of centralized social media is Innstagram, Twitter ,Tiktok ad so many more.This type of social meddia is prone to hacks ,blockingand so many other things.This is the leading type of social media platform hence the companies like Twitter aren’t afraid to block or lose it's customrs because they are bigger in the social media industry.
Difference between Centralized and decentralized social media platforms
1.Decentralize social media isn’t owned by any higher autthority whiles Cetralize social media is owned and controlled by a higher authority.
2.Decentraliize social media is ransparent and fairr hence it’s users safe and protected while cenralized Social media isn’t transparent hence users are at the rest of their information being accessed, stolen or hacked.
3.With deccentralized social media there’ a freedom of exprression whiles with centralized social media usrs don’t have the freedom of expression(airring their thought) On issues they are facing such as the incident between the Nigeria and their police brutalitty case such thatthe citizens couldn’t tweet on what’s they were going through becausee they'd be blokeed and can speak ot.
The future of social media (Decentralized or Centralized)*
d social media isthe future of social media because it’s isn’t run or controlled by any higher authority which means you just can do anything you want without limitation such as freedom of expression and so much more.This is that future of social media because people can use this to expose sitting governments whenever they are corrupt without being Intervened because in centralized social media the governments partners with them such as Facebook ,Twitter and many more and whenever such claims are made they are said to be falsified. There's a tremendous amount of people Trooping in into this into decentralized social media platforms since they are getting to know it’s advantages and benefits.It is a type of social media which transparent Unlike centralized social media where everything is secretive even to the point of them exploiting you off your content .
How Steemit decentralized social media is the best than twitter and facebook.
Steemit is it centralized social media which rewards its users with tokens for post they make.This reward can be redeemed a week later after they’ve made their post.But with social media platforms like Facebook and Twitter they don’t reward their users with anything either than make lettingb them advertise their own products or business which comes at a cost.They are rather taking than giving from their users so that's what makes steemit best and better than both facebook and twitter combined .Steemit has so many communities which it's users could take part in. One of the communities which is the steemit crypto academy i must say is one of the communities which has thought its users more than any other social media platform out there like Twitter and both Facebook combined together because it teaches them so many things like trading crypto coins ,price forecasting ,tokens and so many more aside the steemit income they get from posting.They could even start a career opportunity in the crypto world from the skills acquired from the steemit cryptoacademy .
How steemit social media has changed the lives of millions of its users.
Steemit has changed the lives of so manyy users around te worlld such that when the get rewarded they then convert those tokeens they've had as rewards to thei local currencies(fiat) which they use to sustain themselves that’s by converting steem dollar or steem to their currency.Steemit social media has upped the living standards of so many people such that it’s changed them from a low class of living to a better class of living .Through steemit soome charty prrograms are organised such as onating to orphanages and children’s homes to ensure they too arenn’t left out hence also having an impact to them.
