Facebook? Let Us Get Serious

It is indeed funny, that in 2016, planet earth values a company whose core asset is everyone’s personal and social data, at 377.32 billion dollars. One central entity, that is a place for people to share stuff. 377.32 billion dollars. Seriously? In 2016?

Let us all get serious. It is not like decentralized technology to replace this stone-age centralized social sharing model does not exist today. We don’t need a dotcom to share our stuff now, do we? We are all walking around with supercomputers in our pockets.Let us just move our social data to some P2P stuff built on Ether or some other blockchain or something.

And most importantly, take back the 377.32 billion dollars and decentralize it. It is high time we did that.

Facebook Cannot Be The ‘Facebook For X’

The whole concept of ‘One Universal Social Network For All’ is very intriguing. We might be seeing a local maximum in the evolution of online / virtual social networks – but human beings do not function that way. We have different roles in life – spouse, mother, father, friend .. too many to list – and the lines between each of these are too complex to be handled by a collection of settings. We see this happen everyday – something you post intending to project an image of you to a certain circle / sphere getting seen / interpreted by a totally different circle /sphere resulting in a sub-optimal outcome overall.

It’s just not how we are wired. There are Muliple Me’s on the Internet – what we are seeing today, with ‘Facebook will be the Facebook for X’, is definitely a local maximum.

Do not lose hope. Facebook Cannot Be The ‘Facebook For X’.

Facebook Surprise: Companies’ Posts Now Reach Only 6% of Followers

This has always puzzled us – the way Facebook controls who sees what is shared on a Page on Facebook, in spite of the fact that the Company spent money to get fans to like the page in the first place. The reach percentage has been dropping heavily, and now, only 6 in 100 fans see updates from pages they liked (Source)

So don’t say ‘Like Us on Facebook’. It doesn’t matter that much any more.
