All very interesting developments. Curious to see what lies ahead. Larger social media sites are being manipulated at accelerating rates. As backwards as the BFC is, and as contentious as some issues and relationships have become, the BFC may actually be the antidote to larger platforms. Ego serves as the agent of regulation, not profit.

Maybe.

Right now the BFC, from a technical standpoint is as follows:

Picture a 1976 Pinto that just got a new engine from 1979.

The database was upgraded but only from 4.x to 5.x and it needs to be a little bit higher.

Wow...

Really how hard is it to get banned from social media?

I'm pretty simplistic but I think I could manage it without too much effort.

RYP you are absolutely the most interesting marketing guy ever.

Most prevailing social media is nearing its expiration date. There's been a slack tide with MSM development for a while, hopefully a big tide comes in to wash the shit off the shore. I got a feeling there will be a forum resurgence. Bulletin Board Systems have had their place on the internet since before the internet but lost their prominence to the likes of facebook. It’s amazing how quickly robust, active forums started dieing off around 2009 which was when facebook opened their gates to anyone/thing with an e-mail address.

I see it the same way. What was odd about this one, people were actually forward doing things, not just commentating about topics.

Your friends sent emails to restore your account. They selected terroristss report box thinking it would get a live person to read it. Brilliant.

Robert, you are missed on Facebook, man

This situation blows.

I just watched that Ted talk.

Not bad.

I tried to post on this thread before, but got an error.

Hmmm..
