Comments on 2019-04-25 Remembering Google Plus

Nice post, I feel about the same. Not for G+ as I did not use this network much, but I totally agree for other “silos” 😀 On Mastodon, my “community circle” is much smaller, but much much more helpful and more interactive.

I didn’t use Google+ too much after the “Nymwars”, but it was nice to leave it behind. What I did use of it was problematic at best, and detrimental at worst for me. Especially the level of political talk. I just wish Mastodon hadn’t fallen down the same rabbit hole of politics among much of my circles.

Luckily I’ve been avoiding the kind of political talk that gets me down.

As for the number of people I am conversing with on Mastodon, I think that sadly my RPG circle is still very, very small. There is practically no conversation outside three or four people. And in the long term I think it’s too small, to be honest. My non-RPG account fares better, and right now I feel my Mastodon enthusiasm waning a bit. We’ll see how it goes. I’m starting to warm up to blogging again!

Ah, and enjoy Vienna, Peter! I’m planning on visiting family in Vienna for a few days in July. 🙂
