How about a P2P Facebook replacement that only uses Bitcoin?

Now's the time to Replace Facebook with a P2P, private, bitcoin-taking program!

Now’s the time to replace Facebook with a distributed, private, bitcoin-taking program!

This peer-to-peer project might not net the owner too much money since it’s goal is to be completely distributed, open sourced, and community controlled, but perhaps something like a few dedicated advertising spots on the front of the site for the originator could make you rich if this thing actually gets close to replacing facebook one day.

Think of this as a free software program that contains a website-like system very much like facebook… It has all the profiles, walls, something like tweets, communications, advertising, even games ported in, everything at all that can be duplicated from social sites onto a completely distributed software platform.

Why would this be so awesome? Because people are PISSED right now about the privacy issues with facebook; Now more than ever after the PRISM leak! They also have never been happy about the advertising situation there, which is a negative this system can turn into a positive.

Facebook’s user stats are in freefall right now. It’s the perfect time to make a competitor to facebook that has absolutely no one running the show, nor any way whatsoever for the NSA/DHS/FBI/white house to get access to people’s personal information there!

Where to store all that data? Why not mega? It’s distributed too, and these content pages could be individualized and small. Each client could then keep a backup of that user’s content locally, but the live version would be served from a mega host for speed and great uptime. Continue reading

I’m starting a new trend here on this blog today, one of shorter posts with more value added. Instead of me writing some more opinions of what’s happening in the bitcoinoshpere as usual, I’ve decided to use this blog to start handing out great ideas that will truly help the bitcoin community as a whole.

Most of these ideas will be business ideas, where you can take it and run with the idea and make your fortune, and have no need whatsoever to recompense or even credit me in any way for the idea. Many others will be P2P distributed services, that might not make the programmers/initiators much/any money, but will definitely go a long way towards supporting bitcoin.

I’m giving these Ideas away because I already started working on the one I want to work on, so these are all my overflow… Stuff I’d do if I could, but can’t, so they’re yours. So take it and make it great if you have the skills; and if not… Do you know someone with the skills to make this happen? If so, I’d appreciate it if you’d to tell them about it.

The first of this series is a Trustmark service, which can both help Bitcoin grow, and make the business owner a load of money. Continue reading
