MeWe has bold ambitions, for sure, but in reality people are not likely to flock to Facebook alternatives for all the reasons we mentioned earlier. Most users will stick with Facebook because that’s where all their friends are, regardless of the company’s less-than-exemplary attitude to user privacy. And the demographics that are most likely to sidestep Facebook — teenagers and young people — are more inclined to join a social network that is not so Facebook-y. Snapchat, YouTube, and Facebook’s other property, Instagram, are examples of the kind of platforms currently enjoying popularity with teens. All of which is to say that taking on Facebook may prove a thankless task.
Some Facebook alternatives focus more on local features. Nextdoor is about connecting users with the people in their real-life community – where they live – while Raftr takes the approach of linking people who are interested in the same topics or activities, wherever they are in the world. Boot-sale app Shpock, meanwhile, already arguably does a better job than Facebook’s Marketplace feature at being a more-local eBay.
The ORU Market has designed a sophisticated marketing, communication and advertising software platform that is available, as a benefit, to all ORU Members. Members can use this platform to create advertising and marketing messages about their products, services, businesses or stores. They can select their audience based on advanced demographic filters. Members can subscribe to the categories of their choice and the advertising they want to receive. They can also select to not receive advertising from fellow members. ORU Members pay a small fee for these services and by doing so they automatically participate in the ORU weekly monetary advertising rebate participation income incentive program that pays a cash reward to the members each Saturday.
What’s put VeChain Thor on the map are its recent partnerships. It first partnered with global assurance service DNV GL to allow retailers to track products in real-time. But the big newsmaker was its late February announcement that it and German auto giant BMW would be teaming up. In particular, VeChain Thor and its unalterable blockchain will aid BMW in tracking its auto parts supply chain so as to eliminate child labor.
Launched in 2015, Ethereum is a decentralized software platform that enables Smart Contracts and Distributed Applications (DApps) to be built and run without any downtime, fraud, control or interference from a third party. The applications on ethereum are run on its platform-specific cryptographic token, ether. Ether is like a vehicle for moving around on the ethereum platform, and is sought by mostly developers looking to develop and run applications inside ethereum, or now by investors looking to make purchases of other digital currencies using ether. During 2014, ethereum launched a pre-sale for ether which received an overwhelming response; this helped to usher in the age of the initial coin offering (ICO). According to ethereum, it can be used to “codify, decentralize, secure and trade just about anything.” Following the attack on the DAO in 2016, Ethereum was split into Ethereum (ETH) and Ethereum Classic (ETC). As of October 5, 2018, Ethereum (ETH) had a market cap of $22.97 billion and a per token value of $224.42.

Facebook has been and remains the undisputed king of the social network market. Granted, in some regions of the world, like Russia or China for example, there is a more level playing field with the success of popular alternatives to Facebook who take an equal market share. But for the most part, Facebook is the worldwide leader when it comes to social interaction online. If you’re using the platform, you’ve got no choice but to accept the network’s settings on privacy and data protection and live with them. If you don’t want to do this, then you’ll have to find a good and conservative alternative to Facebook – and either convince all of your friends, family, colleagues, and acquaintances to join you, or be prepared for the fact that your online friendship circle will be significantly reduced (to begin with at least).
EOS uses a Proof-of-Stake mining system which is more environmentally friendly than the Proof-of-Work protocol used by Bitcoin. Proof-of-stake coins do not require intensive computing power. Many believe Proof-of-Stake coins to be the future of the cryptomarket. Instead of actively mining for the coins, coin holders get rewarded for staking (keeping) their crypto in their wallet. It’s these cutting-edge advancements that have made EOS one of the best Bitcoin alternatives on the market.

Affiliated Faculty, Researchers and Students: A diverse and vibrant ORU is dependent on its affiliates to provide the multiple opportunities for interactions across the campus that lead to the creation of new, cross-disciplinary research. To maintain their vitality, ORUs must be accessible to and encouraging of new affiliates who will bring fresh ideas to the ORU’s research portfolio. Any faculty, researcher or student whose intellectual interests coincide with the mission and activity of an ORU can participate in the ORU.
Of the $82 million given to Oral Roberts University, around half went toward eliminating the university's $52 million debt. The remaining $32 million was allocated to, "campus renovations, technology upgrades, academic enhancement, financial aid for new and returning students, marketing and operations," according to the university website. During the summer of 2008, $10 million went toward campus upgrades and deferred maintenance. Many of the dormitories on campus received extensive renovations and most of the campus's other buildings received much needed restoration and upgrades.

Each ORU Director is aided by a standing Advisory Committee, chaired by a faculty member other than the Director, which meets regularly and participates actively in setting the unit's goals and in critically evaluating its effectiveness on a continuing basis. Specifically, the Advisory Committee provides counsel to the Director on all matters pertaining to the unit, including budgetary matters and personnel. The charge to the committee also includes active participation in the planning and evaluation of the ORU's programs and activities. The Chair of the Advisory Committee, and as many other members as practical should meet with five-year review committees and otherwise be available for consultation by the five-year review committee during the course of its review. The Advisory Committee is made up predominantly of faculty members, but may include some members from the professional research series and may have some members from outside the University. The Advisory Committee is appointed by the Vice Chancellor for Research.
IMDB is the go-to website for movie lovers and deservedly so. It’s a great website where you can read reviews of a movie from various users and rate movies you’ve just watched. Along with that, you can also discuss various movies on the “Message Board” with the very cool community. There’s also IMDBPro, if you want to get in touch with an actor or artist.
Unlike a traditional bit, a quantum bit (qubit) can take on somewhat counterintuitive quantum mechanical properties like entanglement and superposition. Quantum entanglement occurs when pairs or groups of particles interact in such a way that the state of each particle cannot be described individually; instead the state must be described for the system as a whole. In other words, entangled particles act as a unit. Superposition occurs when a particle exists in a combination of two quantum states simultaneously.
Peercoin seeks to be the most secure cryptocoin at the lowest cost, rewarding all users for strengthening the network by giving them a 1% annual PPC return when minting. Peercoin is one of the truly unique alternative coins. Although its code is based on Bitcoin, Peercoin is the first coin to introduce Proof of Stake to secure the network. Proof of Work is also used in Peercoin, to promote fair coin distribution, but is not necessary for the security of the network.
The basic setup is similar to Instagram. You mostly post pictures, though you can also share links or recommendations for music, movies, and books. Like on Twitter, you can draw attention to these posts with hashtags and mentions. In an attempt at privacy control, the app lets you customize who sees your posts—you can share each update with different groups of people. And, once you've made a few friends, you can instant-message with other individuals and groups.
For the past few years, researchers at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (Berkeley Lab) have been exploring a drastically different kind of computing architecture based on quantum mechanics to solve some of science’s hardest problems. With Laboratory Directed Research and Development (LDRD) funding, they’ve developed quantum chemistry and optimization algorithms, as well as prototype superconducting quantum processors. Recently, they proved the viability of their work by using these algorithms on a quantum processor comprising two superconducting transmon quantum bits to successfully solve the chemical problem of calculating the complete energy spectrum of a hydrogen molecule.

Bitcoin isn’t going away anytime soon, and through the near future, it will most likely remain the premier global digital currency. Still, competitors for the best altcoin like ethereum and steem are offering very unique twists on digital currencies. Others, like Dash and Ethereum, may be more technically sound. As a result, these competing currencies may some day catch up to, or even surpass, bitcoin.
Dash (originally known as darkcoin) is a more secretive version of bitcoin. Dash offers more anonymity as it works on a decentralized mastercode network that makes transactions almost untraceable. Launched in January 2014, dash experienced an increasing fan following in a short span of time. This cryptocurrency was created and developed by Evan Duffield and can be mined using a CPU or GPU. In March 2015, ‘Darkcoin’ was rebranded to dash, which stands for “digital cash” and operates under the ticker DASH. The rebranding didn't change the functionality of any of its technological features including DarkSend and InstantX. As of October 5, 2018, Dash had a market cap of $1.51 billion and a per token value of $181.42.
