No walled gardens here.
One of the most common complaints about today's social networks is that they control the algorithms that decide what content you get to see. They do this because they need to optimize for advertising, but it's not always in the user's best interest.
Unfortunately, you can't just take your data and use it in a different app. Your data is owned by a central entity, and it's not in their best interest to share it.
On Numa, all your data is stored in a public, distributed way, so that it's impossible for any entity to revoke your access to your data.
You spend all this time creating content and building a network, but what if you want to switch to a different platform? On today's social networks, the data is restricted, so switching platforms means starting from scratch.
On Numa, since we can't restrict your data, you can take it wherever you want.
Anyone can spin up their own gateway server, connect to Ethereum, and create a new message on the network. That means that no one can stop you from posting content.
If you post illegal content, we reserve the right to take it down from this website, as well as our IPFS nodes. But if you run your own servers, there is nothing we can do.
If people think that we're too aggressive with our censorship, anyone else can create a client that gives access to the rest of the data.
