First, he was banned from Twitter, then from Facebook. Snapchat, Shopify, Stripe, then restricted to post on Reddit, TikTok, and YouTube, President Trump’s social media bans have sparked huge debates and interest worldwide. We’re all closely following the news to see: WHAT WILL TRUMP DO NEXT? Who else will ban or be banned?
The Debate over the Bans
Most of us have also probably taken sides about whether Big Tech moderation /censorship is fair or rather concerning.
But there’s a bottom line here: Agree or don’t agree with the tech companies’ decisions, we have all come to notice more than ever that BIG NAME TECH COMPANIES HAVE BECOME OVERLY LARGE & POWERFUL. And we all heavily rely on them.
Big Tech & Their Undefeatable Power
Tech giants have the power to shape the main public square of the 21st century, to control speech and markets. For instance, regarding these latest events, we don’t even know how those decisions were reached, or by whom. These huge companies can do essentially whatever they want, when, and with whom they want.
Another example. Just recently, Parler, the No1 “free speech” social network app was cut off by Amazon, Apple, and Google in a matter of 1 day! Then and there, it was wiped out completely.
In this article, we’ll cover why individuals and business leaders should not be putting all their trust in 3-rd party or mainstream companies. And we’ll open the parentheses as to what you can do instead.
How can Trump (and others) finally overcome the heavy reliance on Tech Giants?
Most of us, not having any other alternative, are communicating through mainstream platforms. And we’re delegating our data and privacy to global market leaders like Google, Facebook, and others.
Also if their systems suddenly shut down, they have a data breach, or they suddenly ban us, we lose our data and all we had created with them.
In order to not to be reliant or directly impacted by 3rd parties, many businesses, individuals, and teams are switching to their own apps and systems, hosted on-premises.
Security experts unanimously recommend individuals and enterprise leaders, who are searching for something better and fully private — to find that the Zero Trust Security model can deliver the best results. The Zero Trust Security concept says to trust no one. Instead, verify everything and put trust only in your own hands.
Put your trust, data, communication, activities, all decisions in your own hands, with your own apps.
To get your OWN communication app or social media app, you can build it yourself. Or get an exclusive app, self-hosted by you, secured under your company account — white-labeled for you.
What if Trump knew he could launch his own social media system, within 5 working days, and host anywhere around the globe?
What Trump needs is his own platform, which will not rely on other’s servers or restrictions.
Such a solution exclusively exists with the help of Zangi. Zangi builds fully private apps for individuals, teams, and businesses deployed strictly in-house. The system will work only with your IPS and domains.
The apps will be fully independent, without any 3-rd party connections or access. Media servers and setup will be remotely deployed on your side, separate from Zangi and others. And this whole process is possible to do in a couple of days, risk-free.
Get your own app, with your own rules.
So, Will Trump be able to create his own Social Media Network?
Currently, Trump remains to search — if anywhere — any possible way to reach his followers
In the latest news, there have been some speculations that Trump is considering building his own social network, but experts say that it would be a costly and time-consuming endeavor — and come with limitations.
The problem is that given the moves in recent days, Trump’s social network could open up some of the same challenges as Parler.
Also, it’s unlikely that the three largest cloud providers — Amazon, Microsoft, and Google — would be willing to host a Trump social network.
If Trump truly wants independence from tech companies/providers and wants to follow his own rules, he can do so only with his own on-premises social media platform.
