The strategy that’s going to help us get there Imagine taking all that’s right about it – the ability to stay in touch with friends and family, colleagues and like-minded individuals, to share news and updates, celebrate winning and overcome losing – and putting that power in the hands of the people actually using it.
Imagine a decentralized platform that doesn’t monetize personal data and content for the benefits of a few owners and shareholders. Rather it enables all involved to become part ofafinanciallyrewardingcommunityofusers who collectively benefit from the commercial viability of the network.
Imagine too a platform that properly rewards content creators for their efforts, provides a mechanism for followers to tip their efforts and offers advertisers the ability to connect directly with their target audiences, and to engage with people who have proactively agreed to consume this content in return for a share of the overall campaign cost.
A platform based on the values of equality, integrity, and meritocracy. Where a person’s contribution is translated into measurable value. Where advertising becomes a revenue stream for the person reading it, or simply switched off all together. And where the rewards for participation equate to real wealth that’s allowed to break free from the traditional limitations surrounding money transfer.

Interesting team and concept. It is a great idea, although this kind of platform didn't do well in the past, so there should be something that makes it special to make it work.
It could definitely work though, especially considering the experience of the team and advisors. Good luck team!

Howdoo is a decentralized social network and messaging platform, rewarding users for usage and uploads of content throughout their operation of Howdoo.
Their team has a lot of experience in all the necessary fields, together with their advisory team they have a pretty complete package.
With all the problems the current social media (Facebook, Twitter, whatever) is facing, this might just be one of the blockchain projects that can take a cut of the market from existing (non-blockchain) social media channels.

Howdoo is the brainchild of David Brierley who according to his website has had an, ’18 year track record of helping successful start-ups to bring highly innovative technologies to markets around the globe’.
The Howdoo team consists of a further 17 individuals who have a broad array of academic and occupational backgrounds. A number of these hold advisory positions. Further exploration has led me to conclude that the team is more than adequate for the task they have set themselves. From my continued research I did not identify any weak players or people from any government most-wanted lists.
How is Howdoo Different?
After reading the white paper and having a good old gander at the roadmap it is quite apparent that Howdoo is doing its hardest to become a legitimate competitor to Facebook and other mainstream messenger applications. It is clear from the outset that Howdoo has the firm intention of being the messenger and social media platform for, ‘today’s generation’ — with the intention of appealing simultaneously to the pedestrian user and the more tech savvy amongst us.
Howdoo’s plan to make themselves distinctive and stand out from the crowd originates from the underlying ethos that permeates their motivation — they genuinely seem to want to develop something that can make a meaningful difference to the world — they actually seem to care about the user experience and to put the power back into the hands of the people who choose to use it.
This seems rather mundane and insipid but when you begin think about it…it really is quite something!
Just think about how our data is used and abused at the moment. Think about the mass exploitation that occurs and the inability to truly opt out. The failure of Facebook to allow its users to enhance their online experience in a way that they want — to truly customise and tailor the adverts that they are bombarded with and to truly fashion a social media experience that they can look back and say, ‘Yeah, I’m happy with that’.
Howdoo, on the other hand, has the goal of emancipating us from the shackles of conformity and restriction. Howdoo is asking us to imagine and support a social media experience that does not monetize your personal data and content for the benefit of a few owners and shareholders.
“Rather it enables all involved to become part of a financially rewarding community of users who collectively benefit from the commercial viability of the network”
Howdoo also has the additional feature of rewarding content creators for their hard work and also built into the system is a mechanism that endows users with the ability to offer tips for noteworthy content creators.
One of the reasons that I particularly dislike Facebook is the incessant bombardment of irrelevant and nonsensical advertising. Most of the time it is completely unrelated to my interests and, in some cases actually offensive to me. So how is Howdoo different?
If they are planning on adhering to their whitepaper then the manner in which adverts are displayed is a much gentler and mutually agreeable partnership between user and advertiser. The user has to ‘proactively agree’ to the content before receiving it (rather than waking up to an advert about Cornish Basket Weaving or haemorrhoids — neither of which I want or have…yet). This is far less irksome and also has the added benefit of reducing campaign costs for the advertiser. We all win.
Will Howdoo revolutionise the social media landscape with its de-centralised approach to sharing and consumer content? Will they actually put the user in control of what they see and do and who and what they engage with? Will they create a system that is diametrically opposed to the majority of social media platforms?
From my examination of Howdoo it does seem very apparent that this, at the very least, is their honest intention. If they truly stick to their white paper — a white paper that expresses a strong compulsion to reshape, remodel and recast the existing flawed models and refashion a new one based upon an underlying spirit of integrity, collective participation and shared interests — if this is the case then I would be crazy not to step back into the world of social media.
It is possible that Howdoo could be the next big thing. Who knows…?
I am certainly following them very closely.

Team: Has a great team and the first team to publish the algorithm of Proof . Loved it. The CEO has great analytics and business experience.
Vision and Product : The vision is great . However, the product details are scanty. I am still awarding four as the team is strong and vision is great.

No doubt timing of the Howdoo project couldn't get any better with the Facebook data scandal in mind as the Howdooo users own and control their data. But not only that - the team is strong (core and advisors) and have a proven track record. The platform looks very promising. Investment wise good metrics.
