In recent time, the social media space has received serious boost with the introduction of new social media platforms. Jack Dorsey (the co-founder of Twitter), after he left Twitter announced that launch of a new social media platform named Bluesky. This platform is set to rival Twitter to the last, seeing that Dorsey cam in with is wealth of experience from Twitter.

While we await the full release of the Bluesky Social media platform, unannounced, Meta released the Threads app. This app within the first 10 hours had 12 million downloads which is indeed massive. Although, this was largely because of the brand name “Meta”. With your instagram account, you can easily signup to the Threads app. This app runs on all operating systems.

Amidst all these, the competition in the social media space keeps increasing sporadically. The team at Silicon African Technologies has been working round the clock to ensure the launch of their social media platform known as diskox. The design and development stages of diskox social media platform has almost been completed as the app is set to be launched soon.

The vision behind the development of this social media platform was borne by the vision bearer and CEO of Silicon African Technologies Mr. Ajah Excel. Earlier this year, all his accounts on the Meta platform (Facebook, whatsapp and Instagram) were disabled without any reason. This development was an unfortunate one, seeing that he had grown his facebook to about 20,000 follower. Having made several contacts with some staff of the company, there a no hope of recovering the affected accounts.

This birthed the vision of Diskox which is the first African owned social media platform. This challenge encountered by Mr Ajah is not unique to him alone because there are tons of people out there who have suffered similar fate. As such, the vision of Diskox is to address every form of issue encountered by social media users. Diskox promises to be an exceptional platform as it will work on correcting all the anomalies of other social media platforms. 

Additionally, it was also observed that the rate at which Africans were treated by these social media platforms was not friendly. There are some users of these platforms in the first world countries who got their accounts verified with just 10,000 followers or eve lesser. Meanwhile some of their counterparts in African with followers of more than 20,0000 has not been verified. Hence, Diskox will provide a level playing ground for all users irrespective of their country and race.
