RE: The Danger From The Likes Of Facebook

in LeoFinance2 months ago

I remember the days I used to play games via Facebook and there was one particular one where I had invested so much time in and one day the developers just decided to stop with it. All of my leveling up gone... And now wondering "what if I really had earned some coins from those games?..."


Well developers abandoning projects is another topic altogether. I get what you are saying and agree with you. However, that isnt really FB's fault and could still happen on a platform like this.

However, the difference is that on Hive, nobody is taking your account. You got hit with that game but your FB account, I presume, was still in operation. What happens if FB zaps your account? Then all that is there is gone.

I'm aware that it's not FB's fault about the game developers moving on 😅 and it was a "risk" and still is when making use of those platforms owned by others.

And I get what you mean about the power social media companies have over "our" accounts... When we open an account we kind of sign away our rights to the content. Luckily I haven't done much on those platforms the last couple of years, but I do know entrepreneurs making use of those social media channels to promote their businesses and services and even the people who use it for private purposes; to all of them a shutting down or "silencing" from the company would be a major loss.
