I’m trying to decide if I should feel guilty about this. That is a lot of time spent here. My one consolation is that this is my ONLY social media activity.
No, you’re away ahead of me, and you give out a whole lot more love than I do.
I think it will look good if you’re ever applying for a job as a “social media manager”.
Now we know where those server errors are coming from!
But seriously, this is impressive work. I’ve got a ways to go…
Yeah, I’m on the Reddit dopamine drip.
Not as much as I was twitch twitch.
Given that this is my only social media account I am sure that I would be the top candidate.
I, for one, certainly enjoy your posts. I think you ought to come by more often!!!
Thanks for posting this. I visit often too. But I feel better knowing my loiter time here isn’t far behind, or ahead of, you and @JohnAtl
That was nice, I’d give two if possible!
Does this place count as “social media” in the first place? I have always thought of it as a forum.
People are social on this forum.
I meant “social media” as in websites like Facebook, Twitter, etc…
Yes, I do know that.
We’ll, for me it is as close to SM as I get.
It’s a holy-wars issue, but I think generally in a “social media” environment the content revolves around the user, where in a forum the content revolves around topics. We don’t have a “Barrett stream” on MPU that is threaded together with all the other user streams, but we have numerous semi-conversational topics that Barrett initiates and/or participates in. Same for all of us.
What is too much if you are having fun? I learn something new here every day!
Can’t say that of most social media.
I left everything Facebook and Google long time ago. Felt like a waste of valuable time and contributing to ads and more ads.
On MPU I learn every day and it also feels good to help others and share ideas. Same with my other hobby forum: Roon
My stats are distorted. I was a long time MPU listener and passive forum browser before I plunged in and signed up…
Most of my activity here results in my learning something new and/or (hopefully) helping someone learn something new. It seems to me that that’s objectively valuable and probably justifies my time spent here. The fact that I generally enjoy the conversations is a bonus (and the enjoyment is just enough to impart a little guilt )
