Comment to 'Predictions for Social Networks in 2020...'
  • I believe 2020 will bring a strong resurgence of DIY online identities. In early 2000s we had geeks building own sites, own blogs, you name it... Then, social networking led prominence of silos like Facebook, and in effect killed the DIY website-creation culture. T-day we have fast mobile connection, most young people comfortable dealing with fairly complex web platforms (social media tools like pages, groups, events, etc), while at the same time large networks lost popular support - there‘s simply no trust, and no wonder. So, with any luck we should have more people realising that whatever they do online can be done through building and developing “their own“ space.
