Are your friends still active on Facebook and Twitter?
I know Facebook has been in decline for a while, but lately it seems to have gotten even worse in my virtual circle. Twitter has definitely gone downhill in the past few weeks, but is still in less of a tail spin than Facebook.

For Facebook, I suspect that it’s because a lot of my friends have either deactivated or stayed away from the platform since the recent censorship controversy. Ultimately the news feed has gone from being half advertisements (bad enough) to almost exclusively advertisements. You don’t need to get banned or censored from social media - just having people in your social circle shy away from the platform is enough to ruin the user experience.

Twitter has had similar issues, but not as steep of a decline based on my observation. A lot of the people I follow still contribute useful or entertaining posts, but with less frequency.

Have you noticed a similar trend lately?

Everyone that I know became a Twitter quitter when Parler was shuttered.

I only check Facebook once every week or two. It seems less active, but I really only hop on there to check a couple of groups I’m in.

Twitter seems more active, but I follow a bunch of media outlets and writers and whatnot, and only a few of them are on the conservative side. My Twitter feed was moving at a lightning pace last Wednesday.

Instagram is the only one I actually like. Facebook is a cesspool. Twitter sucks.

Just checked.


Yep. All Parler friends said good morning on FB. Couple of good pancake pics.

I never use Facebook for friends. I pretty much unfriended or muted individuals. I use it for all of the groups I follow. Camping, fixing things and selling things.

FB = people caring what others think.

Twitter = people thinking others care what they have to say.

I deleted Facebook a few months ago but have wanted to for years but stayed on for some good groups for my work. I don’t have any friends so not sure about them.

Most people I know are coworkers at the fire department so really none of them ever post anything out of fear of getting in trouble or something being taken out of context. I honestly am not sure if I know anyone close who has a Twitter

Your fire department knows you're queer? Is that awkward?

Facebook used to be awesome for seeing your friends really cute baby pictures or keeping track of your old buddies. I don’t really Instagram or Pinterest. Maybe that’s the new thing now.

I was a long time FB user. Probably habit more than anything else. Danced around deactivation for awhile. After the bull shite last week and the realization that the ignorance of the American population continues to grow at an exponential rate, I finally deleted the bastard.

I deleted my Twitter app when the censorship BS started. I never had a FB app on my phone, but stopped going there consistently a few weeks before. I'll still log on occasionally to see what my wife is up to on her account.
