Hi all! Thanks for tuning in & chatting. Yes, @Bas and @Linda, I do count the WFMU comment board as social media. A *good* version of it.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 🎃 Mon. 6/10/19 6:17pm ultradamno:

This board is more in line with the kind of communities that were around on usenet and whatnot when I first came online. The thing about modern social media I've noticed in contrast is how little actual engagement happens or is even possible. Like anything more than thumbs up and thumbs down is discouraged.

For subway phone zombies, I use my best train conductor voice and boom, "Step all the way in, please!" That wakes most people up.

Right - FMU is user sponsored. I think the Content scares most also. ;p
...I always maintain these are all Public Utilities online - but they are the biggest Monopolies in terms of who controls & profits...
