The world of social media is changing. Between the corporate censorship, shadow bans and algorithms that stalk and dictate everyone’s online lives, many users are growing sick and tired of companies like Facebook and Twitter treating them like just another data asset to sell. Flote CEO Kingsley Edwards joins the program to talk about why their social media platform is different and better.
Kingsley tells Tatiana and Josh about his history in the cryptocurrency world and with the Ron Paul movement, and how what he observed there inspired him to create the Flote project. He discusses how the site aims to be better than the current social media giants by emphasizing free speech, data security and a bitcoin-based monetization system that helps users see the content they want to see. He discusses how the platform encourages self-policing rather than moderator action, as well as how the network is creating a more diverse user base in terms of types of content, political alignment and national origin.
It’s a fantastic discussion about the future of social media, so subscribe, download and listen now on Apple Podcasts, Google Podcasts, Spotify, YouTube or the podcasting app of your choice!
