Solcial’s Role in Cutting Down on Centralized Control in Web 2 Social Media.
The world is continuously evolving and so is information technology. The introduction of the World-Wide Web (WWW) brought communication from the physical world of paper and pen to the internet’alized world of computers.
However, it did not stop there; the Web has also undergone series of changes. From:
- Web1 (the read-only web) to…
- Web2 (the interactive, yet highly centralized web), and on to…
- Web3 (an interactive, community-based, & decentralized web).
Web1 only lasted a few years, making Web2 the web all of us can relate to.
Although Web2 is still running actively, as over the years, many organizations across several fields have built it, the world of Web 3 is in construction with many platforms launching on it.
Web2 and Web3 are currently running simultaneously, with users choosing and gradually migrating to the better system.
Note: Web3 was built to fix the numerous loopholes of Web2.
However, our main focus is on social media and we will narrow our discussion down to Web2 and Web3 social media.
Centralization Problems of Web 2 Social Media
In Web2, organizations are in control. Social platforms are built by developers who develop then and run them fully.
The stakeholders involved in the ideation and creation of the platforms form a central council to decide on the rules that govern the platformsand what information are accepted or not. This makes these platforms highly centralized.
In essence, users create content on these social platforms but do not have any control whatsoever because the central council choose what to make of the content. Centralization also brings the problems of:
- Content censorship and ban.
- Lack of privacy
- Content moderation
- Data leaks & theft, etc.
The Web3 Solution
This concept of lack of control by users of centralized web brought about the idea of blockchain and the initiative of Web3 began.
Web3’s core feature is decentralization. Creating apps that users can use and still have governance right over. These applications run on blockchains and decentralized networks made up of many peer to peer nodes (servers).
With a combination of several servers with validators and a blockchain which serves as an open ledger where everyone can verify transactions and everyone is in charge, it makes Web3 robust and accountable.
