Me We – an up-and-coming social media platform – has adopted the Frequency blockchain as a means of connecting more users and bringing about new internet revolutions.

Me We and Blockchain… A Perfect Match?

The goal of integrating blockchain into its system is to give users unique social identities that are fully owned by the individuals they’re issued to. The move is a big step away from how social media platforms are usually handled. Often, a platform is centralized, and a small group of individuals at the top of the executive ladder have control over a users’ information and whatever they divulge or post.

However, following problems surrounding things like Cambridge Analytica and Facebook from five years ago, Me We wants to do things differently and give all its users a little more control over what they do and what happens to their data. The social identities they’re given will also allow them access to a wide array of new Web3-based protocols and services the company plans on introducing.

Braxton Woodham – president of Amplica Labs, the team that helped bring the Frequency blockchain to fruition – stated in an interview:

Frequency breaks the price barrier so blockchain technology can be used to decentralize social at massive scale. This breakthrough enables a bridge for Web 2.0 apps to connect their existing user bases to Web3 value and opens blockchain for use cases that go far beyond DeFi.

Jeffrey Edell – CEO and chairman of Me We – also threw his two cents into the mix, claiming:

Since our founding, Me We has surpassed industry norms to protect individuals’ digital rights. We are furthering this commitment by literally handing control of data over to our users. By pioneering the migration to the social web, we seek to be a leader in bringing into existence a world in which people, not corporations, control the way digital spaces work.

The goals of the social organization flow directly with those of blockchain, which was initially designed to give users more independence and autonomy. The idea is that through blockchain, middlemen, third parties, and prying eyes would be completely cut out of the picture for transactors.

Keeping Things Safe for Users

Frank McCourt – founder and executive chairman of Project Liberty and McCourt Global – said:

Today’s prevailing tech architecture, one that profits from exploiting and dividing people, has caused widespread harm and led to a breakdown in our social fabric, and with the emergence of AI, the damage being done will only accelerate. With this significant milestone, we are witnessing firsthand the creation of a new and exciting model for technology. By utilizing DSNP to catalyze systemic change and by empowering people to take control of their digital lives, we can replace today’s broken tech model with a better version, enabling a much brighter future for us all.
