April 30, 2020
In this episode, we connect the dots with decentralized social networks.
Social networks are not just tech products anymore. Now it’s ecosystems that should be aligned with human and digital citizen’s rights, data ethics and privacy, global and local policies. There are many concepts, how we could connect these dispersed dots and criteria. I suggest you to explore views of a person who had an opportunity to see how social networks had been evolving from the 2000s to nowadays.
