I was curious about everyone’s opinions on this.
I’ve seen the concept of a decentralized social media network (like Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram) frequently mentioned, but everyone just dismisses the idea by stating that no one would ever pay to publish on such a network, which is a fair criticism.
Imagine a social network that functions EXACTLY as it does right now, but with a different business structure.
Instead of paying Twitter and Facebook, advertisers instead pay the actual viewers of the advertising. I think there are examples like this like DESO, [Cortex]( or [Mastodon](
It doesn’t seem too absurd, does it?
