To the Sphere folks, I really want to invest in your ICO because I hate Facebook with a passion, lol.

And Sphere is actually a great name which is important and will give this platform an edge over other decentralized Facebook's coming out.

What I need to know before investing is:

1) Is Sphere actually (going to be) decentralized? Is the entire software going to be hosted on Ethereum (or a blockchain) or is it just the token hosted on Ethereum while the software is run on a central server?
2) Since a successful Social Network will require a lot of transactions per second, how will it scale if it's successful? What happens if Ethereum is unable to scale quickly enough in the future?
3) How is the governing of Sphere going to be decentralized? Will there by a constitution? Will there be voting? Who will get to vote? Or will Sphere the company still control it in the future thereby it won't truly be decentralized?

From what I understand about Steemit:

1) It is actually entirely on a blockchain.
2) The governing is decentralized and the founder has moved on/lost control.
3) It can scale.

If we are just replacing one centralized Facebook with another centralized Facebook that happens to pay users in crypto currency, it's still a big advantage/improvement over Facebook.

However, I would think a truly decentralized Facebook like Steemit that no one controls would outcompete Sphere over time. Thus I'd rather save my ICO money for that if/when it comes out. A big problem however, is that there really are a limited number of GOOD NAMES for social networks. Sphere happens to be a great name. It could pose a threat to Facebook if done right and truly decentralized.

What do you guys plan in terms of marketing to attract people after the ICO? I think that's one of the most important parts for you.

Really good questions. Their whitepaper is lacking too many technical details that are necessary to answer them. I would suggest the developers add such details to the whitepaper or publish a separate technical whitepaper.

Maybe they really need some marketing, but I do not think it's too aggressive, there's already a big influx of investors that will have that interest, the community is big, and the need to use the network is already great. Perhaps a limitless list to test how many future users are interesting

About question 1: It will never be fully decentralized and I think they said in the beginning that they want to make it as much decentralized as possible, but still there are mods etc. if I am not mistaken so in this case it is not 100%. Or do you just mean regarding where the data will be saved?

I bet everything on the possibility that Ethereum will come up with the perfect scaling methods. There is so much money involved and the incentive to solve the problem are extremely strong. They will make it happen.

remains to be seen. I certainly hope so, as I'm mostly invested in ETH and tokens.
Etherium has with Vitalik one of the most famous and experienced actors in the whole space. I think he and his team will make this happen.
The limitation that ethereum has will require a lot of work to be solved but I do believe that ethereum itself have a bright future.
Ethereum has enough resources to improve the system even thoes limitations are difficult to solve. I also think it has a bright future.

One constraint for social networks will be the massive amount of data it can generate in the future and naturally it needs big data centers to store those data.

There will be one or two things that will halt sphere to fully decentralized. But as they already said, they will try thier best to make it happens, and as long as the reason not to 100% decentralized is making sense, that is okay.

I think a fully decentralized system brings too much problems with it. Look at Steemit where no official mods etc. are in charge. Steemit is full of plagiarism and photo thefts because no one can do anything against it.

At this current bearish market condition, we are seeing less and less people going into alt coins. In fact, most of them have not recovered a quarter of what they lost in January. So, it will be difficult to bring people even if the project is solid. What Sphere can do is to incentivize people who are investing now and will in the duration of the project.

Yes, the bearish market is crazy currently and somehow it seems to not recover soon. But maybe it was needed after the crazy bullride in December where every shitcoin went up at lesst 10x, but more like 100x or more.

Don't they already have some kind of a referral program?
I think the main marketing strategy comes before and during the ICO, because if you invested or followed the project during that time, you sure will follow its development further on.

I think they should put ads in important webpages like coinmarketcap. Having reviews and going to conferences is also a good idea.

I think they need more average people to join the network.A network made of crypto nerds won't be successful so maybe put ads on Facebook.
