The recent events around Facebook and social media have created some confusion among users. In the end, it's a matter of preference whether or not to leave Facebook one's own data. But what happens to the content? Our content?
Anyone who updated their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram apps recently, has had to accept the new terms and conditions of each app, as in May a new (crazy) law on privacy will come into force in Europe.
Have you tried not accepting the terms and tapping the "more options" button? Yes, there is one, after all we do have freedom of choice, right? Well, once you're on the "more options" screen, you can:
So you either accept all those new clauses which it takes about 12 coffee cups to read (that's how long it took me - author's note), or you just leave.
Let's say we want to delete our account, because we don't want Facebook or Twitter to know our personal business...
Besides losing the (maybe many) followers gathered in months or years (or bought in minutes - see video in the suggested links, in Italian), one would also lose all the published or uploaded media content. And of course, with it, its publishing dates would be lost, too.
We talked about it some time ago, in a different article called "The time dilemma and the publication date". Through the years, there can be a lot of data (I'm not an artist, yet my history of two years amounted to about half a gigabyte of texts, videos and pictures).
So we could not only lose something we have no backup of, but also the date it was published on. This could become annoying in time, since copyright lasts for a very long time (at least for the entire duration of the Author's life).
Not to mention that any social network could decide to remove some of your content, or delete your profile even, for several reasons, through the years.
Times change, and technologies and websites that allow Artists to share their works keep being created and closed down constantly. Contrary to these, Rights Chain is not a content-sharing platform. Rights Chain wants to give Artists an opportunity to manage their Artworks, attributing a licence to them, and providing them with a tool to prove the Intellectual Property of the registered Artwork in case of a violation.

Tumblr isn't just deleting porn, it's removing the roots of digital art; maybe it's not that important however, after all there's so much lewd art online that we'll have forgotten all about these artists in a few days.
