The internet has become an entity that no one expected it to become. From the vast source of information to specifically curated content for you, it has come a long way in the last 20 years itself. As it becomes even more popular and widespread social media have become tools for all.
Whether it be to communicate with people or get their daily dose of fun social media has become an indispensable thing for most. But as time has passed on many people have started noticing the curtailment of freedom in recent times.
Many creators have been silenced while hate speech and racism run rampant on the platform. Many platforms also take a big cut off the creators’ earnings while these are the same people that help people stay on these platforms. As the new decentralized technologies get more and more prominent they have started experimenting with their own versions of social media.
Web 3.0 users will actually own their information and other digital goods that will help them be independent. The bridge between this new-age tech and the older one will help people migrate from other platforms. The fact that people own their own information will help them not get targeted ads and their data will not be sold to other companies.
Since it is a decentralized space there will be no censorship but all things said will be available to everyone else to view. No more fake ids and hiding behind bot accounts. This will help make the internet a neutral ground again with no monopoly by big corporations.
