The future of Social Media

The future of Social Media

I’ve been a pretty big fan of Facebook for about a dozen years now, but recently had an experience which left my feelings towards them soured.  #FacebookCensorship ftl(for the lose).
It causes me to think about the future of Social Media: We all know Facebook’s reign of terror will end someday, and I believe it will be because a better Social Network takes their place.  If we look at the trend, from Blogger and Friendster, to Myspace and Twitter….we see a veritable tug of war between variety of posting options, to the conciseness of a news feed…the list goes on and on.
That’s not the future I’m referring to, however.  Instead I’d like to speak on where I think Social Media is going.  It’s important to start by defining what Social Media is: Image result for social media defined
So does anyone see anything about a corporation moderating and censoring aspects of the information?
Because I don’t.  What I do see is that a true incarnation of Social Media would permit anyone to share any content they deemed worth of sharing.  Anything else is censorship, right?
So what I’m getting at is that the future of Social Media, in my opinion, is openness.  It’s a community where users can choose what they want to see and share, and by nature of that freedom, moderation is unnecessary because people can simply not look at what they don’t want to see.
