It is the right way to go to blockchain with social media platform. Also facebook started to investigate blockchain:
https://www.coindesk.com/facebook-blockchain-token-might-look-like/


I think by what M.Z. want to say: "With the growth of a small number of large technology companies - and governments using technology to track their citizens," it's only afraid that its platform will go down.
Maybe that's why she wants to decentralize the platform. It has been known for a long time that we are being watched in everything we do on facebook. Many of us are tired of this.Maybe he's afraid of projects like Sphere.
The issue of personal data is in their hands; not in the hands of governments or other companies. From my point of view, they are 100% responsible.
The sphere will be a great success and will make Facebook fall for sure.
Facebook is already holding ridiculous amounts of data of their users and they are monetizing it. I hope that decentralized platforms will change the way how current social networks are working

but well, mark zuckerberg already commented that they are working/experimenting with the blockchain already /hmmmm
There are really plans for Facebook to implement Blockchain, this is a matter of time, but I hope the Community is fair to embrace projects like Sphere, which will really work for decentralization and will fight for our goals
I've never heard about Facebook implementing blockchain technology. Could you share some more info about this?

i ever hear it too, the news that fb experimenting on blockchain, but it not huge news, cause no one talk it anymore.

I believe Zuckerberg just mentioned he was interested in researching cryptocurrencies. Nothing really about Facebook on a blockchain or something
You believe right, he is definitely interested.
https://www.express.co.uk/finance/city/901278/Facebook-CEO-Zuckerberg-cryptocurrency-bitcoin-blockchain-price-boost
I am sure Zuckerberg is aware of the technology and he knows that he cannot miss the cryptocurrency train. I think we will hear more informations from him soon.

It can be good and bad news for Sphere. If Facebook adopts blockchain in any way this will give Sphere a huge boost because they are a 'native' blockchain project. On the other hand, Facebook being Facebook they are a big competitor.

no need to be paranoid.
Simply check several characters at the beginning of the address and in the end. This is quite enough.

Yep, that should be fine I think. At least that is how I make it every time when I send coins around.

Sometimes they are making very elaborate plans to scam people. You need to be paranoid actually.

More important is to check the URL. Some Sites like MEW are completly copied and listed in top results in google.
In gerneral becaus of the anonymous approach of blockchain you have to be carefull

We are in crypto, here are not stupid email collectors and Viagra spammers.
People here are intelligent and often have good programming skills.
If they make a fake, you will not see it at the first glance.
So my advise is, be paranoic every day and doublecheck every times, before you hit enter.
Use two computers, one for crypto, one for surfing and so on.
Being paranoid in cryptoland is wise, not a psychological disease.  Cheesy

What will be sphere's monetization scheme like Facebook has ads?

It will be stated in whitepaper as business model.

They plan to create an ad platform. Advertisers can pay with SAT tokens for the ads.

well I use adblocker everywhere and millions others also like me.

I use it as well sometimes, but there are also millions that do not use any adblocking software. Moreover, some types of ads are allowed by adblock

It is currently complicated to sustain a platform in a business model that is not used for partner advertising, I am not sure how Sphere will make sense, but I do not see any problems if even after decentralization of this segment they continue to provide space for partners

There is some people try to scam your money like in every successful ico out there.

You should double check everything you are doing while participating in an ico.

Not just participating in ICO, you should really DOUBLE CHECK EVERYTHING. Scammers also evolve. Be careful, guys.

always be careful which address you're using and go to the dev's website to get it. double-check the website as well.
You are right, now the scammers are very high quality fake websites of real ICO, which is sometimes difficult to distinguish!

Agreed! The bad guys out there always update their ways to fool people. Extra high precautions are a must.

Even in telegram groups people pretend to be admins and tries to scam people using pm's with saying that "special discounts can be available send xx eth or btc to ... address" so beware any of this.

I  think many people use an ad blocker. It's not that difficult you just have to download an extension. But the best is to use a script-blocker like uMatrix.

Indeed, many people use it but not most of them, at least not among the people I know.

Would be really nice if the devs could post an official information that they are aware of the scammers and try to do something against them

I think they pinned a message about it or even they didn't do that, i absolutely think they must do it. People sometimes can get careless and do sth. stupid so every campaign manager, community manager should increase awareness about this situations.

Sometimes its hard to be so thorough when pre sale or ICO is sold out in meter of minutes and you really need to be fast on order to not miss the sale. Thats why you need to prepare yourself beforehand and know your steps.

I'm sure of it. And I have high hopes for the Sphere project. and existing social networks will be a thing of the past!


Unfortunately, most users of facebook and the like don't care about their data, that's way I think it could make it difficult for projects like Sphere to get a lot of users from there straight away.
It's going to be very dificult make users who have been using the same platform for years change to other platform but not impossible.
in fact, i think it will be very difficult to convince users who use the same platform for many years to switch to another new, but perhaps with new and unique features sphere will attract the users of other social networks and will become a point of reference for crypto and social users
You are not right. Now a lot of social networks impose restrictions on content, it negatively affects the General situation of all social networks.
