I don't do social media of any kind, I find it all pointless. I guess one could say you gotta really know people to make social medial work, like a network of friends you know in real life. Technically, Facebook was founded on the same way, but network with real life family, but over a net connection.
But when you have nobody to talk to, no friends in real life, no family members left, well, it makes all that social media junk fairly pointless. Usually its kids who go to school and make friends, are the ones who get the largest use out of social media.
Twitter, Instagram, their pointless too, cause again, it requires knowing people. And Instagram is perhaps the biggest fake of them all. Its a giant look at me platform. Everybody rates you based on how good that people think you are.
Basically, Instagram instills fake validity in people, and feeds on the pride of other's to further its true goals. Turns out Instagram specifically has been involved in making girls commit suicide, and they have even admitted it.
Its as its already been said here, social media, is nothing but negativity. But it feeds on negativity, just as the daily news does for TV. They know that negativity sells. If they can get your view, then they earn however much monitization they can off of you.
Twitter is just more of the text version of Instagram, but its the same sort of thing. I even find it odd that nobody is in Fear of Discord. Its popularity has been increasing at alarming levels. Because of its success, everybody wants to buy them, including Microsoft.
I believe the last reported networth of Discord was like 15 billion dollars now. So, its clear that Discord is very lucrative, and thats why big companies want to buy them out. They see the dollar signs, cause at the end of the day, people who are using Discord, well, I hate to break it to ya, but your being stooped like Windows users.
How do you think that Discord has grown so fast to be a 15 billion dollar worth company in only what 6-years now? Thats cause their mining your data! And thats why companies like Microsoft are really interested. They want more data, and they know once they purchase Discord, they can have it all.
The real truth behind social media, is its huge corporations way of getting to know you, build up a profile on you, then control you with it. As the AI continues to get smarter and smarter, they to will manipulate you more and more.
Humanity is already known as a race of zombies these last several years, its only going to get worse. So ya, I think our forum is a lot better place then social media for sure.
