Socialising On The Web
I'm just going to spit a few thoughts out of my brain that have been going around for a while. First of all, could the owner of the blog above, please remove the ban-hammer that their systems have over me. I don't comment all that often on blogs, so it would be nice if I could when I do.
Certain blogs and websites now default to Facebook as the commenting system, with a feeble attempt to support other platform accounts like Yahoo and Twitter. Often you won't even see a Google account option, which I think is a bit odd, considering the reach of Google on the Internet. I leave comments open for everyone here. Garry Glitter could comment here if he wanted, and he sometimes does!
Google+ is the best place to go if you want to interact with me [ Gamma Goblin ] . People like to bash it, belittle it, laugh at how little THEY use it, but I find myself putting a "+1" on something at least once every hundred years, adding the odd "I like the colour of your cat" comments to posts. I like it. Then again, I also just don't like Facebook, so maybe that has a lot to do with it. The horrid device that is Twitter still gets most of my attention though.
Twitter rolled out the "Promoted Tweets" thing last year, but under some sort of guise of: "you'll only see promoted tweets from companies you already follow", or some sort of shite. Now they have ramped it up and are injecting this kind of crap, from out of nowhere. God only knows what the real agenda is. As if there wasn't enough shit to scroll through.
Facebook has gobbled up most of everyone on the web. It has destroyed blogging and RSS feeds, and stands like a wall in front of interacting on the internet as a whole. Even people who know this, still insist on using it, that's the problem!
