Social media keeps changing. Twitter, Facebook, and others are increasingly hostile to those that express conservative views and even actively suppress them. Google Plus has announced it is sun-setting the consumer (personal) pages. It looks like Facebook has won that war for now. But it’s not over at all.
I think with all the negativity that exists with the Social media giants and their security issues, data breaches and mining concerns, and their ability to limit speech by those with a different political agenda, will be their undoing.
Blogging is on the rise and continues to grow daily. New blogs rise up everywhere on every imaginable topic. And I also think we will see a return to the internet forums as well.
I personally have several of each. And I am a member of several more on top of that. My wife checks different blogs every day on topics that interest her.
Of course the difficult task is finding these blogs and forums that are within your varied interests. Internet searches can give bad results or no results depending on the search engine used and the keywords themselves.
But they do exist. And if they don’t, they can easily be created by someone who wishes to bring it life with their passion. Fortunately technical wizardry is not required to do this in today’s age.
So find us. Join us. Create your own and invite us. Let the word of each be spread far and wide.
Social media is coming to an end.
