In this video I show Firefox (https://firefox.com) working alongside P2P protocols such as “Secure Scuttlebutt”, “IPFS”, and “DAT”. More info at:

Social Networks have been all the rage years ago when they reached their peak and destroyed a couple democracies around the world (including mine) but this is not a text about that. The lens I want to use for us to observe social networks is the content creation and manipulation lens, so grab your lens and follow me through some underexplained reasoning.

  • Social Networks try to present a minimal UI, just enough so that the core features are usable. They are target at common, easy idioms that foster passive engagement in the form of content consumption and sharing. Content sharing is not the same as creation or manipulation, you’re supposed to bring content from outside.
  • Social Networks have been optimized for mobile-first UIs which provide a better experience in detriment of a more powerful and flexible experience.
  • Social Networks prioritize artificial rituals such as liking which gives the trappings of interactivity without generating new content (while also helping fine tune their profiling and tracking data for advertisement purposes). In essence they are metric factories where most features are present to provide measurable forms of engagement to feed ML powered advertising engines. The content sharing is just the fuel used to burn through these metric rituals.

So, my case is, Social Networks limit the amount of interaction
