What is the new Social Media thing we should all be on?
« on: October 18, 2015, 10:34:14 pm »
Web 2.0.3.5 is here everyone, and we can't pretend it away anymore.
We sorely need a dedicated social media thread.

Tinder, Vine, Instagram, Snapchat, Periscope, whatever else there is. There's at least seven, right?
I keep missing out on these things until everyone else already knows about them.

(And some of the ones that I did know apparently stopped existing more than a year ago.
Remember Turntable.fm? You took turns playing music for other people in chat rooms? It died in 2014.)

We need to pool our collective heads to keep track of what everyone else is into these days so we can make fun of it better understand it.

What interesting social media stuff is out there worth discussing?


What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Now that Tanburu is in closed beta, I can't really think of anything up-and-coming.

Wait I thought rys was being coy
No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

The forum is fine.

Keep your footprint as small as you can. There's no reason to willingly give the government and the corporations all the information they will ever need to blackmail the **** out of you or otherwise force your compliance.

I'm young and hip (just turned 16 today) so I know what's up.

Reddit and tumblr, mainly.

Do those count as social media though?  Users are mostly anonymous.  Well, maybe that's not the right word.  They're under user names, not actual names.
Probably not a Goat, either.

Which reminds me... you can't trust the image boards anymore either.

Trust is not a term I ever would have applied to them, but tell us about the image boards, Pat.

(And some of the ones that I did know apparently stopped existing more than a year ago.
Remember Turntable.fm? You took turns playing music for other people in chat rooms? It died in 2014.)


Apparently even though Turntable.fm is gone, alternatives exist:

https://www.dubtrack.fm

I am gladdened.
Also it's been months since someone posted a social media discovery in here.

I just found out Twitch has an entire "Twitch Plays" section now:
http://twinfinite.net/2016/01/twitch-opens-an-entire-twitch-plays-category/
None of you told me this.

What other strange and exciting modes of future interaction am I missing out on?

Is there, like, a website where people stream live feeds of actual bears with an attached chat room?
Or an image board, but everyone has to pretend to be the grocery store owner from Keenan and Kel?

Come on internet. We've just scratched the surface of social media.
What meme is relevant right now? Look, just imagine I'm riffing on that. Updating signatures is exhausting.

Ooooh those Twitch plays are cool; i wonder if the guy who did Pokemon is involved with that section at all

No, no, he did. In the everything else section, at least. Officially, this makes him king.

Constantly and endlessly Pat.

Constantly.
and.
Endlessly.

Also we can make things too. That is also an option. :D
