idea for “social media” me and a friend had many years ago where profiles can be properly customised, colour scheme, fonts, etc., like the golden age of the internet … remember myspace, faceparty, bebo, netlog, tumblr to some degrees, allowing more creativity and individualism which could be expressed when someone visited a profile

i remember having the “mind deprogramming video jukebox” embedded onto my myspace profile, purple background, impact font, with the music i made at the top, those were the days ahhh

but imagine also having widgets for things like favourite music, soundcloud/bandcamp/spotify/other embedded widgets on profile landing pages, people’s favourite art/music/games, etc

people can listen to the music when checking a profile

embedding widgets would offload processing and bandwidth burden to third party already-established platforms such as the above music ones

optional 3D spaces with the music playing automatically in the zones, artwork displayed on walls, games, etc

artists get royalties/plays/exposure/etc

no need for NFT etc but that can always be an option

profiles customisation is seen by the visitor not just the user of the profile

simple but classic touches like custom fonts in chats, on posts, change colour, bold, italic, what happened to all that?

i want to bring it back, but it’s a big endeavour, and centralised pissnet giants like fascesbook and twatter like to just envelop everything they can, once in a while adding whatever they think is “the new cool thing”, while their underlying platform is stale in many parts (especially fascesbook now).

i mean … can’t post with different fonts or colour or font sizes … not even a native bold/italics/underline? seriously? why? because they made it that way… there are reasons… they want total control and keeping people in the walled garden with less creativity, to say just the least.
