An occasional blog.
Hi Meg I am home, but my puter still isn't fixed.I can't read this don't have chrome.I can't even work on my blogger page.
Thanks for the Chrome tip. Interesting. Especially when it said that the platform was stiff and outdated for blogging. After thinking about it, it probably is. It has other really good features that other sites don't have but it really hasn't kept pace with some other strictly blogging platforms. I guess that's what was unique about MP, was that it was more than just blogging. I don't think the outside world, and the new company/CEO realize that it was more than just blogging. It's a shame they let it all fall apart. With some effort, it really could have grown into something special.One other interesting note. In all the talking about places to go, I haven't heard anyone talk about Tumblr. (did I spell that right?)
oh, don't even bother with Tumblr - it's so very totally *not* built for communication! it's a cool place for showcasing photos and stuff, but comments aren't built in, so people mainly just "like" each other's stuff, or "reblog" it. Totally *not* a social networking platform. (I used it for a while for showcasing my photos, but moved that stuff over to WordPress partly because I wanted people to be able to post comments.)
I agree. For blogging it was okay but not anywhere near as good as places like WordPress or Blogger, but Multiply was not just a blogging platform, it was a social networking site and really good for that. G+ does a lot of what we had here and also offers other things we couldn't do here, but there's also stuff we took for granted on Multiply which we don't have there. *sigh* we got spoiled here...
my 13 year old girls LOVE tumblr. it's full of gifs that have to do with their favorite television characters saying idiotic stuff. in other words, i only go there to see what they're posting but not to actually enjoy it. ;-)
It's interesting to see then that that was one of the choices MP has given the groups to export. That was all I needed to hear :-)
It's a very popular site. I also know adults that use it regularly. It's like a big version of Twitter (big meaning you can posting pictures and more text, but otherwise it works very twitterly).
yeah, very twitterly. I also know adults who use it - got there through a friend who does - but it really is hopeless for actual communication.
Leave me a note!
