Reviews

  • Pros: 

    Maybe competition will push Facebook to be better.

    Cons: 

    Same as Facebook with a different name

    - Software that is "built and maintained by Sociall":

    Same as facebook just different name.

    - "A fully integrated a semi-automatic self-serve ad platform":

    Users are still the product

    - "instant access debit card":

    Anyone remeber the "Facebook Card"? Google it.

    - "The project may eventually open some repositories":

    Facebook also has some open source repos

    I don't see any difference between Sociall's business model and Facebook's

    Pros: 

    Future self governance features, decentralized data (just you own your data), future ERC20 wallet integration, marketplace integration .

    Cons: 

    Platform still closed beta (but not for long)

    Jade Mulholland (CEO of Sociall.io) communicate constantly with its stakeholders. The team is transparent in their management (as well achievements are shared, problems or defects too). SCL team have achieved every milestone in their roadmap, so Social.io future is bright from closed beta and beyond.

    Personally, I am very excited about benefits this platform will bring to its users. It is different, resolving cyber ethics problems and improving user experience through blockchain with its SCL currency.

    As time is passed, their progress is notable. ¡Great team behind Sociall.io project!

    Cacique has used this product for one month.

According to your whitepaper (page 14): "All data and multimedia uploads are stored within the encrypted decentralized storage solution that is built and maintained by Sociall. This system integrates with a hosted database that utilizes MongoDB sharding for further decentralisation of storage." You have a strange idea of what "decentralized" means. You own the servers that run the database infrastructure, that means nobody can host a "sociall node" to really decentralize the platform. IMO You're confusing clustering/geo-clustering infrastructures with the decentralized infrastructures. Also Facebook is a decentralized network according to your definition.

@antoangelino I don't know if Jade saw this, but as mentioned in another comment the sharded MondoDB is only temporary and they're moving to IPFS on release.

@praveen662 umm your profile. Your only upvote is this project, and along with the rest of these generic "facebook killer" comments it's pretty easy to tell what's going on in this thread.

@praveen662 @markus_schuette Totally, totally agreed. Fortunately, there's a "REPORT" function for just such a situation.

Peer-to-peer, decentralized, private, crypto, tokens/coins, self-governing, open source. Features: marketplace, messaging, ad platform, crowdfunding, blogging, groups, events, poll posts. Either this is the future. Or Pied Piper's next product. (Small note: the website doesn’t scroll smoothly on my iPhone. Is it only me?)

@ricotrevisan Hi Rico! All those features you mentioned are in the pipeline now and are being developed. We hope to release them shortly. Thank you for reporting that issue with the landing page - we'll look into it!

@mulhollandjade Thanks for the attention. Where will the data be stored? On the blockchain? If yes, how fast is that?

Jade MulhollandMaker@mulhollandjade · Founder & CEO at Sociall
@ricotrevisan All data will be stored within our decentralised system that we built in-house. In the coming months, we'll be moving all uploads to a distributed model, using IPFS. This is much faster than traditional blockchain based storage. I highly recommend reading into IPFS as it's a new protocol that will change how we use the web today.
