My goto for the last few months has been Reddit. I didn't post for a good long time but since then I've asked questions or even answered a question or too. Other platforms I may have posted once and got such vitriolic responses that I never did it again. They have been much kinder and gentler to me on Reddit.

Anyone use irc? And everything2?
  6:48pm miragliuolo:

There's a book by Tim Wu called The Master Switch that I always think of when I reminisce about how sites/communities used to be better back in the day... He focuses mostly on "Information Empires" like "radio" and "the internet" but I think the premise can be applied on smaller scales to forums and social media. It's about things starting off very open, as a more free alternative to something else, but then eventually becomes just as locked down as what it replaced.

Speaking of blue checks there was a blip about a week or so ago where Twitter where Danny DeVito's check was revoked (and ultimately restored) after he posted in support of the Nabisco strike.
Avatar 6:51pm Jeff Moore:

Yeah, I used to use Facebook a lot, and now maybe check it a couple of times a week... Facebook is still the place I find the most of the people I personally know in actual meatspace real life, including people from the distant past. This is of course both good and bad.

My favorite social media platform was (F%#k you if you laugh!) Google+. But of course Google mis-ran it then abandoned it. But G+ was such a great place for low-friction long-form conversations with, for instance, important tech people I'd admired from afar for decades.

Twitter is KIND OF like this, except with the message length and formatting limitations... it doesn't feel as deep to me.

I now spend most of my social media time on Instagram – where I went from general posts about local things and occasional WFMU-related photos to a weird obsessive practice of focusing on photographing wristwatches. Constantly, over and over.

And with the hashtagging and gradual spread of contacts through that specialized community, I'm now in contact with a whole cadre of other people who pay way too much attention to timepieces. It's pretty remarkable, really, how that group-finding can happen.

@adampsyche: the common wisdom that "nobody used G+" kept being repeated over and over, to the detriment of a platform a lot of people actually used.

I particularly blame tech journalists, and journalists in general, who assumed that because THEIR friends didn't use G+ (they were probably all over on Twitter), then "nobody" used G+.
