Made it the whole way through tonight... thought I'd leave something new in the lobby to celebrate.

Yaaaaayy :)

Yesterday was of course "that day" ... and we skipped it and decided to celebrate love and smooshiness on some day other than when "they" are telling us to.

But I went on my Instagram and posted a Bitmoji of me with a heart, and captioned it "This is the day for warm hearts. Go find a cardiologist and set his house on fire." They deleted the post and flagged me for "violence and incitement".
Oooooh, they don't know me very well...

I'm on a 6 day Facebook suspension for saying, "Now I'm going out to suck on a fag." 

They're on a 90 day suspension from me for being Anglophobes and trying to destroy the cultural heritage of England.

Guilty as charged. Instagram is not quite as awful as Facebook but it's still awful.

Agreed with all of this. 

Instagram is, after all, just Facebook. Same for LinkedIn.

FB is on a whole of life ban from me, in part for both those reasons., but mostly because it just sucks.

It does suck, but so does losing touch with family, who is on there, and only there.    Between a rock and a hard place.

If they're not willing to interact with you anywhere other than facebook, are they really family? At some point you realize that your time is worth something and so are the people who *want* to spend time with you, and the blood relationship means a bit less when you're trying to decide who is really your "family".

I have "relatives" who think they wished me a happy birthday because they did so on my wife's facebook account. Fuck those people, they're not family.
On the other hand, the folks I *do* consider family are *in* my life. Some of them are blood related, others aren't. A few are people I met RIGHT HERE.
Facebook doesn't offer that because it's built to make everyone hate each other so they keep coming back to drive more ad revenue.

I truly value each one of you and love that you keep coming back to be part of my life. Really.

Yes we do, however with a large family ( that is spread out via vast distances too ) its not practical to visit them often enough to truly keep in touch.   Sending family snail mail is sort of dated, and not 'communal' .  Phone calls, well are too 'real time' for today's busy world, and still not really communal.

Also true, but our family keeps our politics out of discussions ( even during the holidays when we are in the same house and not on-line ) since we are all adult enough to know we are all different. Shared messaging works well for us. ( not the public posting thing )

 

Sure, id love to get them off FB and onto a better platform, but reality is they are there.

Isn't it funny that the words "communal", "communion", "communism", "commune", and "community" all have the same root, but all have very different connotative meanings?

I think this is where I am. People tell me they wish I would log into Facebook, they tell me how much they miss my contributions to Facebook, how much they enjoy my posts. 

But it is all happening at The Sanitarium - and they know where that is. It isn't difficult, and I've made it as easy as possible. At some point, if they can't make the minimal effort to log into my BBS to keep in contact with me... if Facebook is the only place where they're comfortable interacting with me... 

Maybe we should go back to being long-lost acquaintances instead of Facebook "friends". 

That goes for family, too.

Keep in mind too that one HUGE obstacle to overcome now: Mobile

For so many people that is all they use for 'social media' stuff. It has to be there, in the store, and brain dead easy to install/setup.   "get app, enter name, works"

You're right of of course. And because I have more to say than 148 characters - I have never been a fan. Mobile is for content consumers, not creators. 

I do wish we had a mobile interface app for Citadel. It would probably kick up engagement a notch - but also, lower the quality of the users exponentially.

The content consumers, is 90% of the people out there. 

And IG does plan on making the NG interface responsive, which will be a great thing in the grand scheme of things.   I guess technically it IS mobile now, if you want to use IMAP on a mobile client, but that is a pain in the butt. Ya it works but i prefer the real client here instead and no casual user would do it anyway which is what we need to think of..   Then you have jabber mobile for chat, but again, no casual user would even have a clue.

This.

If they only talk to you when it is convenient to them, they don't think you are that valuable.

There is a reason why my customers and providers phone me when they want something. It is because they care. Heck, I have customers to whom I could deliver stuff via logistics agencies who prefer to come to me and talk to me instead.
