If you’re following happenings, there was a huge shakeup on Reddit yesterday. Whole communities were banned for rule violations… rules that were updated yesterday, but then retroactively enforced on old content. Similar events are happening on all corporate social media sites.
Whole online communities are moving to their own hosting platforms. The “win” network is being formed as a lifeboat for Reddit users. Some content is being saved, some simply abandoned. Individual users are losing all their followers and by extension any public voice they might have.
A few years ago I told my wife that if Facebook ever got too crazy (I abandoned it years ago but she still uses it) that we could setup a private section on this site for just our family to stay in contact with each other. More and more it’s looking like something we might do. Maybe we could offer that to long time members if you’re interested?
At what point do you guys bail on specific social media platforms… or all of it? Have you ever even considered it?
