Social Fail

As I’ve drifted away from Facebook and twitter, I’ve tended to use IG and TikTok a lot more. FB has become such a chore I mostly post updates and comment on folks I follow. The overwhelming ads and “suggestions” is just not worth my time to scroll thru. IG is fast becoming an ad-engine as well. Tiktok is an awesome time-waster when I have down time. It’s sort of a way to disconnect and let my brain become numb.  Beyond that, social media in general isn’t really worth the effort most days. I setup a Bluesky account but I barely use it as well. If I have to force myself, what’s the point?

The good news is I find myself wanting to get back to my blog more. How’s that for irony?

  1. I’m completely with you the state of the social media. I’m thankful you’re on the few keeping a traditional blog going.

  2. Left Facebook/Twitter a decade ago. Still on Instagram, but I rapidly reach the point with ads that I just close the app and walk away. Right now Threads is pretty innocuous, but even that gets tiresome.

  3. I occasionally will write a “blog post” on FB, which reminds me that longer forms of communication are something I miss.
