Can Block-chain change the business model for social networks?
Brian Fox has a major article on INC about a new evolution (or revolution) in social networking site business models: New networks that will pay you in digital “tokens” for placing content there. The title sums it up: “Block chains are about to disrupt social networks in a major way”.
I don’t know where it is reviewed before being put up.
Right now, Facebook and Twitter own the content you put up on them (although I’ve never heard of a problem with reusing it yourself). Google does not claim such ownership on Blogger, Youtube or Picasa.
You can check out Steemit. It sounds a little bit like Second Life.
I might join and consider submitting an article on power grid security. That would create some value.
