How Decentralized Social Helps You Get Paid Without Being "Liked"

How Decentralized Social Helps You Get Paid Without Being "Liked"

Let's face it, social media has become an integral part of our everyday life, with platforms like Instagram, Twitter, and TikTok being used daily. While these platforms have been incredibly effective in terms of increasing visibility, they've also created an insatiable need for individuals to constantly strive for arbitrary "likes" to garner attention and relevance without getting paid.

But, here’s a novel idea, what if you didn't have to depend on vanity metrics like “likes” to be seen and most importantly, get paid?

A Monetizable Social Network

Well, look no further than the DeSo Blockchain. The reason why I love DeSo much is that it empowers the creator. It enables users to earn money without having to rely on likes or followers. Yes, you heard that correctly, whether you're a freelancer, a business owner, or simply looking for extra income, DeSo offers an intuitive, easy-to-use platform that pays users based on the quality of their content rather than the number of likes they receive.

DeSo believes that you, the creator, should be able to monetize your content without having to worry about if you're liked. DeSo is an innovative platform that enables users to make money from their content by getting paid directly from their supporters. Users simply post their content as they would on any other social platform, but when they do, they can get paid.

Web3 Diamonds Are Forever

When other users agree or resonate with your post, they send “diamonds” which are micro-monetary donations (real money) instantly given to the creator, a form of social tipping. For example, if 5000 users see your post and just 10 percent of them give you $0.1 each per post, you could theoretically earn $50 from just that one post. Multiply that over 10 posts and you now can earn $500. You didn’t need them to “like” you. You were simply rewarded for your content. That’s the beauty of DeSo and the possibilities are endless.

DeSo is a decentralized social media platform that seeks to empower users to get paid for their time and effort.

For content creators, DeSo is a game-changer. DeSo has a built-in tipping system, allowing users to directly send money to the content creators they enjoy. With DeSo, content creators have the freedom to make the content they want and receive payment for it without relying on likes and followers.

Stop Chasing Likes & Start Getting Paid

DeSo is a completely new kind of decentralized social media platform that allows users to create and share content, earn rewards, and get paid for their efforts without having to rely on likes and shares from the public.

DeSo removes the need to be liked and instead helps the creator focus on quality content and engagement. This should be the gold standard for influencers going forward because it shouldn't matter if you have one follower or 100, you still should get paid for your creation.

Blockchain Back-Up Plan

DeSo is also a great back-up plan for Twitter users because it gives control back to the creator and just in case you get de-platformed from Twitter, all your content is now stored on the DeSo blockchain. And did I mention, that now you can monetize every Tweet as well? Yes, you can. Simply sync your Twitter with the DeSo Blockchain with a super easy one-click Google install.
