i'm pretty sure issue that occurred a year or so ago where bitcoin was having tons of confirmation issues could be equated to facebook going down.
facebook depends on up-time so that users can be online and see the ads being pushed towards them, and bitcoin depends on fast, inexpensive network confirmations for people to maintain faith in bitcoin as a reputable payment system

I did not wonder why bitcoin is stonger rather than big company like facebook,instagram etc because bitcoin is we can use in our daily transactions to make our everyday life convenient. And aside from that  bitcoin can use as an investment that you can get an extra income unlike in the social media you only see photo uploaded and other issue without any income.
Indeed it must be admitted that there are different segments for bitcoin and facebook etc., even though there is a disruption to them it is clear that bitcoin will continue to run even though there is no direct impact, but only the absence of clearer information, but bitcoin has a place of information reliable. bitcoin will remain up and running because bitcoin is a reliable investment.

when such gaints can run into a problem, what makes you think they can't be shut down ?


LONG LIVE BTC, 100% UPTIME Cheesy

bitcoin is way harder to "shut down" if not almost impossible
it is decentralised and it only depends on internet to be able to function without any problems even if some ountries would restrict or ban it
centralised companies like facebook or apps like instagram or whatsap are heavily dependant on too many factors to be considered safe from being taken down if neeeded
even google or facebook face huge fines and constant court cases etc.

Social networking platforms developed over the years such as Facebook and Twitter can always live forever. It can change owner, but I believe it will live in tandem with Bitcoin.
Yeah since long we are watching facebook twitter and other social medias but the best social media which is working along with bitcoin is facebook for sure but recently I have heard about what’s app as well, that what’s app is also now working with bitcoin for promotion and development. So it is a sign that bitcoin will live forever.

Just right now I am experiencing a problem with my facebook account. I cannot make posts and when I checked the reason why, FB said they are making a maintenance check up on my account. Its been more than 3 hours already and still not ok till now. Well, bitcoin may not be as strong as it used to a year ago in value but still kicking, surviving and believed to be returning back in its height soon.

Not just that, every account or mostly game accounts connected on FB cannot be log in due to FB error.
I hope this will be good soon! well in terms of cryptocurrency with social media.
Facebook is having their own crypto soon.
I thought that this Facebook crypto was just a fluke. I just kept on hearing it in this forum and knowing that there were a lot of people saying it, now I confirm that it is true.

Serjent05, maybe you did something not appropriate for facebook to do that on your account.

Now that's interesting. But the tech giants won't be replaced so easily.

In fact, it's a lot more likely that they will buy the competition than anything else. When the CEO and partners see themselves on the edge of a fierce competition with them and they get offered a lot of money(The one that really get to be considered a threat) then they will most likely sell and live comfortably.

that is always a big fear of mine too esp because people will sell out for money. The Elixxir project seems promising seeing that they have a pretty prominent figure in the privacy and crypto sector

Facebook, instagram or any other social media platform being down has nothing to do with bitcoin and it's prices.
Besides social mediums are not coins in the cryptocurrency world

From what I heard they were testing some new algos that are supposed to implement acta rules. They are trying to block free speech, content sharing, and the spread of information. Acta is internet censorship and it will lead to most youtube content creators disappearing for good. Only decentralized platforms will survive.

Well people should have fled to p2p alternatives, such as Diaspora. I dislike Facebook and the like. Not only you should go p2p, but secure and obfuscated p2p, such as Diaspora thru Tor or something similar.

Living in a country that blocks thousands of sites for having opposition views, i have come to realize the importance it is to strengthen these initiatives. Do not ignore them because in your freedom you don't seem to need them. This is like people ignoring Bitcoin because their fiat is so great (ie. USD o EUR). But by the time a fiat goes the inflationary spiral it is too late to react, you won't see it coming, trust me, a million yearly inflation last year but it might reach 10 million or more this year, should "socialists" remain in power that is.

For better IM you have several choices, I haven't tried that elixxir but have used riot.im. One thing i dislike from Signal is that it is too much a clone of Whatsapp, and i consider whatsapp design abominable. If anything, i'd rater have a Telegram open source p2p clone.

But yeah, the giant problem is always convincing the others to stop using those garbage centralized and proprietary social media apps...

Really? But I don't have any problem to access Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp. I can even chat with my family and my friends. I think that is not related to bitcoin and I believe that bitcoin will be strong forever. Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp are tools in the social media which we can use to communicate with the other. But bitcoin is different than that apps because bitcoin is one of the financial systems that will bring a better world for us.
In my opinion just like Facebook there is no problem as similar to bitcoin, because both is become more popular in all countries. Especially now btc is much familiar because of its very useful currency in payments and for investment. so bitcoin is stronger to them.

One thing is that bitcoin is a decentralized blockchain Solution
Not just any form of website such as Facebook Instagram and their likes

So how can we compare the significances

It's hard to compare social media apps to bitcoin which is a decentralized currency. However, we could see through it that bitcoin has been through a lot. I could drop down but due to its volatility, it could still rise beyond our expectations. Unlike social media, bitcoin involves money and that's what makes it stronger.

I have a real answer for your weird question Roll Eyes

You need the network to exchange your bitcoins between wallets and eventually get some real world fiat (money). Else why would you even want bitcoins or any other crypto currency right? Wink

So imagine (for example) that Internet would blow up and go down for a while. How would you use your sweet lovely bitcoins? Yeah.... you got your answer.

its not hard but it is inapropriate to compare social media with bitcoin  .  it does not totally make sense because what is the connection of social media to bitcoin ?  bitcoin itself is a crypto  currency  ( a currency and an asset ) while social medias such as fb , twitter and i.g are only a  website   .  however all of them are all online   .  all of them are strong and popular   . i bet that was the reason why the op itself did start somparing them to each other  .

OPs comparison is on different platform, bitcoin is an online currency, so we should compare it to other other currency to determine which is better
by looking at its advantage. What if internet will shut down? which I never heard happen yet, bitcoin is running through internet and it's called an internet money. All the internet platform is making the industry bigger and with the growth of this industry, it will slowly change the world to shift online.
