Journal Timex's Journal: Social media: B-O-R-I-N-G 5

Twitter? Yawn.
Facebook? Try screaming through the night, yawning.
Google+? Pft. Yawn.
Diaspora? BIG, disappointing yawn

That pretty-well leaves the Slashdot Journal. It almost feels like home.

Social media: B-O-R-I-N-G

  • Not everyone left. I don't post often but I frequently read.

    Oddly enough, Multiply's social stuff is about to go away.I have no clue where everyone plans to go as I was never really a serious part of the community. I imagine they'll scatter to the winds. I am curious to see if anyone returns.

      I heard rumors that G+ was headed that way, but I haven't seen anything to support it. I haven't used it as much as I thought I would, so I wouldn't be surprised.

      Facebook is getting on my nerves-- FB staff seem hell-bent on making it near impossible to keep on top of any security-related issues. Every time I set things the way I want it, they decide that it's time to shake things up and I'm back to figuring out what they changed and what (if anything) I have to do to prevent unwanted eyes from seeing it.


    • LiveJournal, hopefully just temporarily. There are about 45 of us on there now.

      • I have an account on LJ, but the interface is very stark and I am not sure how often I will use it. I think I understand why you're hoping it's temporary.

          It is what it is.

          A couple years ago I started planning out an interface for my own social site, using it to learn HTML5. After a month of notes, I decided that I didn't have a lot of spare time to flesh it out and it went on the back burner.

          "Why HTML5?" you may be asking. Well, I tend to write my HTML pages by hand. I get curious sometimes to see how a page does certain things, so I look at the source (when possible). My CDO kicks in when I see obfuscated HTML. It's even worse when the source opens wit

Things equal to nothing else are equal to each other.
