30 Oct Social Disaster
Strange photo I know but this was breakfast with Jane at Betty’s Tea Rooms Harrogate ! A social setting full of people taking and passing the time of day.
I was reminded today by a friend how Social media used to be an extension of our friendships ! I for one used to go out partying and clubbing and use MySpace and DontStayIn as well as FacePic as well as MSM to keep in contact with my friends. This would be online chat after a night out or arranging the next night out or meet up.
It went on after I moved 300 miles as an escape from reality to chat with old friends and new after work and again to arrange meet ups and trips etc.
It was great from my friend who’s husband had left her to talk to friends as she was stuck at home with two very young children.
Yes Social Media was quite good very useful and very funny.
But things changed with Facebook and the crazy Algorithms… suddenly you could not swear you dare not look at a nipple let alone post one you could get banned for no reason and suddenly everyone had an opinion and mutuel respect went out of the window ! Friends had to be divided in to groups so they did not argue and fight and it went down hill from then on.
I guess the big changes came when Facebook worked out they
