Is Facebook About to Get ‘Myspaced’ by Steemit?

Quote from the article:

Will Centralized Social Media Fall to the Wayside?

Platforms like Facebook and Twitter are still the prominent social media applications everyone uses. The mechanics of these websites are very much centralized as third parties benefit from users’ content, targeted ads, and personal information. ...  Given the rising popularity of Steemit, the next generation of social media will make it easier to monetize content, resist censorship and provide users with a true peer-to-peer experience. It may be a few years until Facebook loses its supremacy the way MySpace did but the trend towards decentralization and better security will ensure that users do not only retain their privacy but also share in the spoils of their online community.

I feel like a service like Steemit is definitely a step in the right direction. I am not even remotely sure if the idea will catch on for a lot of reasons. For starters most people still don't even know understand Crypto currency. Also Facebook is not really the same medium as Steemit. Steemit is more for blogging, which means posts will generally be higher quality. When in Facebook the format is far less formal. I am not sure if I would post the same kinds of things here that I did on facebook.
