Time to move to Twitter or some other service?
Away from G+?
G+ is shutting down
Not sure if twitter would work as well. I liked G+ since you could discover groups and really Taylor your feed. Facebook has to much crap and twitter not sure if discover is very easy.
It’s taken a long time to build up community. Chilipeppr & DIY CNC’s G+ service is where I learned most of what I know about CNC. This could be disruptive.
I did prefer G+ over FB.
I can’t really think of any social network that has the best model for the tech community. G+ really did have a great model. Twitter, Facebook, Instagram all seem like not the right place for us. Pinterest could maybe be a solution.
I’m on Pinterest frequently. I never really viewed it like G+ or FB. Twitter’s not gonna work, I think. I don’t use Instagram currently. Microsoft doesn’t have a decent social net do they?
A guy in the Ox group Jereme Tarot, has suggested some type of alternative. I’m unfamiliar with the framework & everything involved.
Apparently, services won’t end until August next year, but ppl are trying to coordinate some type of service elsewhere.
I have seen alot of people moving to discord. Not real good for organizing lots of info but good for Q&A.
Reddit could possibly be an outlet … Still not a great option
I use Slack at the office, but that doesn’t seem super great either for a forum like this.
@jlauer Does Pinterest have forums similar to G+ or even somewhat like FB? I really like their format and that’s where I’ve collected all my ideas in CNC, Woodworking, resin, welding, molding etc.
Some of the communities I’m part of are testing mewe and a few others. I am not sure how I feel about mewe.
