I agree it’s a good time but not because of those reasons
in a few years most of the big social players will be 20 years old so now is probably a great time to position for generational transitions + crypto natives
Yep. Also AI and crypto are opening up all sorts of new product frontiers.
On all three accounts: for technologists laying foundations, for connectors-of-people cultivating their niche community, and for brands exploring meaningful service models. (Curious about TikTok not being a network — perhaps not as defined in 2006; but as an enabler and propagator of culture in 2022, seems to be)
if you wanna build it then build it. the timing is never wrong for something better
Best time to start was two years ago (new enough to bake in web3, old enough to have some traction) Second-best time is now
yes. the largest digital public town-squares are all overwhelmingly crowded and we feel like we can't possible fit everyone inside. plus, ads have become too tacky. oh, and bots too. that's why FC and incoming neo social networks feel so much organic and easy going. the Frontier is reopening. h/t: @ace
