Whether or not you like TRON & EOS, all their social media applications and projects outside of gambling and gaming are abandoned, unusable, or have such a small community that they are negligible. At any rate, I don’t recommend either.
If we look at Dapp Review for the social category of TRON: https://dapp.review/explore/tron?category=6 we can clearly see more than half aren’t working, some aren’t English, and the rest are just messengers. Not a single social platform exists. You can also look at https://www.dapp.com/ or https://www.stateofthedapps.com/ and you’ll see that the majority of EOS dapps and TRON dapps are just for gambling. You can also check out https://app.co/ and https://dappradar.com/.
If you consider the games on EOS or TRON to be different from gambling, I respect that, but realistically it operates very similarly the difference just being that they pretty it up and make it more fun for you. I consider most of them to be different forms of gambling and I’ve tested many different games. Most people just lose money.
It’s more or less the same for EOS except any that were working to some small degree aren’t fully usable because for months now, EOS has had such high transactions on the network, that you need a ridiculous amount of stake to perform basic transactions. With more than $20 USD staked into my EOS wallet, I cannot even perform one single transaction due to the CPU usage being over 98%.
It really goes to show that the only viable networks currently for social applications are Ethereum and Steem. Regardless of how many transactions TRON can run which is 2,000 compared to Ethereum’s 25 and Steem’s 10,000, there are no dapps out there to take advantage of it anyways.
If you look at my previous multiple looks at EOS dapps in the network, you can see how lacking they are. Today we are going to revisit this and do a quick run through the non-existent social applications of TRON. Mind you, DLive is migrating to TRON, but DLive has been overly centralized and had many issues around it and though it will be their first actual social dapp, it is an egregious example of what a blockchain platform should be.

People have also been concerned about EOS being too centralized. The majority of EOS is held by entities in China prompting fears of state intervention
Considering it had a 4.1 billion-dollar ICO, it is pretty ridiculous how poorly the DApp market has evolved and many developers haven’t been able to make money contributing to the network demotivating and disincentivizing them to continue doing so.
Block.one is the company that launched the code is the largest token holder and could easily redefine the governance of the chain at any time which again is centralized, and they don’t bother to.
EOS founder was forced to pay 24 million dollars to the SEC and you can find one article on this here: https://coincodex.com/article/5339/eos-developer-blockone-agrees-to-pay-24-million-fine-following-sec-settlement-a-slap-on-the-wrist/.

Let me know what you think. Am I way on with this? Feel free to point me towards some good working social platforms on TRON or EOS that are available right now and work regardless of the EOS transactions overload and CPU overuse.
