Yea as mentioned I don't have the social media connections. I do troll FB but you don't need a FB account to do that and it is exclusive activity to find cool bands.

My son has an Instagram after he won a big yo yo competition last year so it was a necessary evil to help promote his dream. We parents monitor it and his "friends" are exclusively other players so it is good for him and his obsession.

Message boards aren't SM, imo. It is a way of communicating online, yes but SM? Nah.

Thr SM sites have million of users. This page has about 25 regular posters. Not very social.

And I don't live near most of my family. My brother pulled the same guilt trip on me when I turned facebook off. "How will the family stay in touch with you?

I said "Uhh, call me?"

I own a telephone. Does that count as a social medium?

I have everything. Haha. I mainly use Facebook, though. I have a Twitter account for writing and Shock Totem, but rarely use them. Same with Instagram. I use that for my fishing group, but never remember to post anything. Haha.

Anyway, if you have Facebook, shoot me a request. I need more music fans. Most of my online friends are authors and fishermen. Few people comment on my music posts. Crying or Very sad

I walked away for the most part and it's been a healthy move. 2018 was nasty busy anyway and I needed to drop distractions to get shit done. I've missed this board way more than I have Facebook. Now I'm on Reddit, which is arguably more addictive than Facebook lol.

FB isn't a bad place, actually, I enjoyed discussing music there. Other than that, though, not really my thing for many reasons that others have stated.

Dropped Facebook this year.
It was a time waster.
Plus - rats would surf my sh*t -
it was hardly friends - etc - maybe in the beginning -
now its a propaganda machine -
more geared towards little kids, imo -
many silly ass photos with silly ass captions too -
don't miss it - at all - surprisingly.

I've thought about joining Reddit, but I'm probably better off keeping my comments to myself. Razz

I fart around on Reddit every so often, but it's too easy to fall down a rabbit hole on that site and never come out. There are "commmunities" or "sub-reddits" devoted to pretty much any subject/interest you can think of, some of which cannot be un-seen, if you know what I'm sayin'... *(shudder)*

Oh yea, I've been around on the ol' interwebs long enough and seen things I wish I hadn't. affraid I could easily get sucked into a Reddit black hole for hours if I didn't police myself. Although I do enjoy watching r/awww videos with my daughter.

Yeah Reddit is fun stuff, can be addictive. I think my favorite sub is r/askreddit. It's interesting for reasons I can't even explain.

Best thing about Reddit is the anonymity, sort of like this place. I remember making a Facebook post a ways back of some tracks I listened to at the gym (I know, douchey), and one of them was Fucking Hostile. Man, the shitstorm that followed. My cousin, my aunt, my grandma, an old youth pastor, one of my CLOSE friends, and the dad of my best friend from High School brought the hammer down on me. I hadn't seen the dad in 20 years and he just went full didactic without restraint (I somehow got labelled a "progressive," quotes and all). It was all brutally preachy and not at all how anybody would act in public. All over the title of a song.

I eventually became really mentally exhausted taking into consideration my entire audience when prepping to post something. It's not that I want to care about their reaction. I just don't want to deal with the aftermath.

I dunno about anyone else but it took me a hot minute to get into Reddit. At first I was a little confused, found a sub of interest, hung out there for a while, found another sub, realized that there's a bazillion different subs (sub are basically like topics, sorta how we have Unsound Mind, Gutterbox etc), started subscribing, and boom I was hooked. And this only started happening last month. Only problem is I can't find a decent music/rock/metal/band sub. There's a nice Opeth one but otherwise nothing with discussion like HoM.

Yea, Reddit is the same principle as an old fashioned message board, just a LOT bigger.
