📑 The Good Web

Bookmarked The Good Web (SSIR) (ssir.org)

The common ground behind the Good Web is the idea that social media must be taken seriously, not just as a problematic space in need of regulation, but a space that could ultimately help us be better neighbors, voters, and advocates for social change. What we must take from this conversation is the notion that it is not enough to fix existing social media. Instead, we must imagine, experiment with, and build social media that can be good for society.

Ethan Zuckerman discusses different proposals for making the ‘good web’:

  • Facebook Knows Best: The Centralized Web
  • Put Us in Charge: The Deplatformed Web
  • Put Nobody in Charge: Web3
  • Think Small: Decentralized Social Networks

Personally, I have sided with the decentralised solution. However, what Zuckerman highlights is the need to be open for alternative options.
