The Paradigm Shift in Social Media Platforms – Discord Reaches $15B Valuation πŸ—£οΈ

According to Bloomberg, Discord, a platform for communities to communicate with voice calls, video calls, and text messaging, is expected to raise a new round of funding at $15 billion. Alex and Nick discuss Discord’s growing valuation, the reported acquisition talks with Microsoft earlier this year, and Discord’s history with content moderation and censorship. The two go on to philosophize about the next generation of content platforms being focused around smaller, more private groups of users. They discuss how Discord is well positioned to fit into this new paradigm that more closely resembles an exchange platform model rather than a maker model like many of today’s popular content/social platforms.
