Instead of uploading all our information to silos like Facebook or Twitter, we should be able to host our own basic (meta)data like avatar, status updates or social connections in a standardized format.
You would then be able to grant services like Facebook or Twitter access to that data via a token, and you could control which service gets access to what kind of data.

I got tested for COVID-19.
TL;DR - result was negative
