So Google+ is about the kick the bucket. I never loved Google+ (I remember the days of the bad press that the “real names” policy generated), but I hate hate hate Facebook, and it was the most successful competitor to Facebook. I’d actually been using it a lot more, recently, as there are a non-trivial number of art- and RPG-related communities on Google+, and I’m sad to lose those.

Chatter on one group suggests that some folks are headed to MeWe — yet another social media site that no one I know uses. But I’ve signed up to see if it turns in to anything. At least they have a mobile app.

I like blogs, myself.

Have you poked in to Mastodon?

Some folks are moving to pluspora. I signed up there. I'm thinking of signing up for MeWe as well.

It's a diaspora node admined by gplussers. pluspora.com It has a few quirks but I like it. There's a lot of gplus refuges there so I've been able to connect to a community. You do have to spend time turning off notifications though. And there's no editing posts. Overall, though, it seems pretty decent.

I created a MeWe account but on first flush, doubt I'll spend much time there. I looked around and some of the open communities. I'll have to poke around on gplus and see if I can figure out where everyone went.

I only use it for work, and we're keeping it for now. DW and Tumblr are the only social media sites I like, but they're only good because they're both so clunky and suboptimal.

(pokes my head in to say hi) I've been researching G+ alternatives and discovered that MeWe, which talks a good game, is exceedingly popular with people from 4Chan, the alt.right, hard-core libertarians and other people I don't really want to be associated with. For what that's worth.

Some people are talking about Dreamwidth as a G+ alternative, but it won't work for the thousands of photographers I've come to know there, because we're all about sharing photos and albums of photos, one thing G+ has done exceptionally well. :(

Ah, well, there's always FaceBook (half kidding, I have a love/hate relationship with it).
