Yes tho I’m on Reddit as Lagduf.
Yea, I don't like Twitter either. I've had it for a long time, but use it minimally. 2-factor authentication is annoying and having things linked to Facebook is frustrating. Somehow, I navigate it.Reddit is just so foreign to me that I am afraid to even try it...same with Twitter.
It is implementation-wise. But reddit has a huge disadvantage that usenet didn't have, competition. Back when usenet was the thing, it was also the only thing. Which, sure, can be bad. But it was also awesome in that for example alt.games.sf2 is where *everyone* on the entire internet talked about Street Fighter. Reddit often fails to become the true source of discussion on any topic, usually something else wins out. I miss usenet.Reddit is the natural evolution of Social Networking from 80s BBSs (Commodore 64) with sysops + dial up --- >> Usenet --->> late 90s (2000s UB code (this site) --->> MySpace (skipped that) ---->> Facebook.
I still feel like there was better quality content on usenet. reddit is just an echo chamber of mediocrity...tho I guess that is the evolution of the entire internet in some respects.
Like the comments section on a trashy news article.That's because the normies couldn't use it/didn't know how.
Reddit is pretty good for niche discussions but as others mentioned, any sub with more than 5-digit users is total garbage. Children and waterheads posting memes and arguing over the same three fucking things over and over again. If you streamline your experience, it's the best of the major social media sites but that's like bragging about having the best STD.
Didn't they interview a complete retard for occupy wall street too? Internet grassroot movements are way too easy to dismantle or take over...
What more needs to be spoken about Fox news? Fox is Fox. Meanwhile, there is a large portion of this 1.6 million member group who believes they should be gifted a living wage for walking dogs 10 hours a week, subsidized by the people who work 50-80 hours a week, regularly work weekends, etc.Fox News interviewing a Reddit moderator speaks more about Fox News than about some moron from the internet.
