Anonymity

There has been a lot of criticism on TV about social media, the likes of Facebook and Twitter, but I don’t think they’re the problem. There are privacy issues but you can configure your account not to share personal information. The internet should be regarded as a public place where you shouldn’t put anything you regard as private. The best thing about the internet is it provides a global means of communication. People are the problem.

Blockchain will make web communications more like talking in person, if used you can’t remain anonymous anymore. I think the complaints about social media are misplaced. Social media is just a place to meet, like a coffee shop. You can be influenced anywhere if you’re given to that. Importantly maintain you individuality. Education will help us to be discerning as we become a greater collective through our use of the internet.
