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.
