It's high time people ditch FB and communities regain their online independance.
All these talking points are a stark reminder FB group participants and admins are not in control of their experience and instead exploited to prop up an ecosystem preying on users' and visitors' privacy and stimulating SN addiction to breaking point.
So that'd make Earth either the 8th level or 10th circle of Hell? I'm not too sure about that but it'd make for a great title & premise for a horror book/movie/game. Would be perfect for the Doom series.If there are levels of hell, then this earth is the highest level of hell.
Hey Rev, been a while!All of those changes look amazing, for forum communities lol. Hopefully they do push back people to using forums for their needs instead of facebook groups.
I'm also surprised forums haven't seen a big resurgent in the past couple of years. From what I've seen, heard, and experienced the younger generations all stick to twitter/instagram/snapchat while the older generations tend to stay with facebook. Most kids now a days use twitter as their main social media platform.
Hey Rev, been a while!
Yeah, I've noticed the same thing. Most of the younger generations do seem to stick with those three. IG is owned by FB so I imagine some of their policies will filter down to that soon enough as well.
Now I feel badLisa!!! It definitely has been awhile! How have things been going for you? Can't lie before remembering about TAZ I tried to go back to your old site out of habit and then became disappointed lol.
Me too. I've never been a fan of FB groups, and have never really understood how people can use them. I have a couple of large FB groups and I constantly tell the members I'm going to make it a forum lolI do agree on the policies trickling down to IG as well. I really do hope it brings a resurgence to forums though. I've always preferred forum communities over Facebook (I myself don't use it at all besides maybe once every 6 months and even Twitter I've cut way back on).
Now I feel bad

Facebook like most big tech companies these days has just gone crazy with algorithms.what i worry about is the emotes. we often use a sad face when someone dies, or someone is sick. it is an expression of condolences. we use a mad face for things that disturb us. it is not about the person who posted. it is usually about the news itself. we never realized that facebook sees those emotes of personal feelings as something negative against the poster.
they need to just give us a thumbs down emote instead of going through all of this convoluted stuff about emotes. they are getting a bit ridiculous. do they really expect us to smile and be happy when someone's cat dies?
