Fatigue on That "Other" Platform
Yes, I have an account on that platform who shall remain nameless. Pretty much an OG there. Joined in November 2016. It has been a wild ride and I've had a lot of fun and met some fantastic people. I won't deny it. But over the last few months it has almost become too much.
I love the fact that it is "free speech." Well, mostly. However, the level of vitriol is not only out of control, it is mind-numbing in its repetitiveness. Literally the entire timeline is a one-note song: Kike, Nigger, Jew. I'm a National Socialist so I get it. I really do. After a while though, it all becomes white noise - no pun intended - and the message is drowned out, faded, and ineffective.
It wears you down. I try to keep things in perspective and I am doing my part recently by hashtagging #BeautifyXplatform. I post pics of classy women and couples in love and pics of traditional lifestyle. I figure if I'm gonna bitch about something, I'm going to do my best to try and make things better.
I follow about 3600 people (in theory) and I would bet I only see about 300 of them in my timeline. Understandable in some respects. Bots, old accounts, dead accounts, what-have-you. And this platform makes it impossibly difficult to unfollow people. It literally can take days. Days I don't have because I have better things to do with my time.
"So, George. Why don't you just leave the danged thing?" That is a valid question. There are a couple of reasons for not leaving. First and foremost I value the wonderful relationships I have over there. Many are true friends and I'm not ready to leave them. As well, I am backing away slowly as I build a presence on Shing Social. Many of my friends are now there and as Shing grows, I hope to make it my primary home for posting and keeping in touch with my internet fam.
If you are on that other platform, I'm not suggesting you drop it outright. What I am saying is that you owe it to yourself to explore the other options available.
