Politcally Incorrect Musings
Where did everybody go?

There seems to be so few posts from my friends on LJ lately. I guess most have jumped ship to Facebook. That is a shame since it is totally unmanageable with the more friends you have. It just doesn't scale well. Plus Facebook defaults to the most popular posts instead of most recent. Thus, I tend to miss many posts. Since it only retains a limited number of posts, those lost posts are lost forever.

Did you know:

You can post to LJ through instant messenger or email.
LiveJournal can create an email address for you.
You can make a voice post to LJ over your phone.
You can
use LiveJournal to update your Twitter and Facebook accounts.
You can use HTML tags for a richer post.
It is easy to manage friends and groups of friends. Totally scalable.

And LiveJournal keeps ALL your posts until you delete them.

Basically, you can do everything in LiveJournal that you can do in Facebook (except privacy stealing apps and games) but better. Think of LiveJournal as your advanced Facebook, but without the security issues.

Total number of LJ friend posts seems to be down a bit, but it has been a gradual decline for my friends. I still post here roughly once a day. On FB, I usually give picture links, and one sentence about where I am. Here I usually say something.

I am strolling through the friends' list of sca, and agree that there seem to be fewer posts here but again over a longer time period. I hate facebook now, since it's so thin and so little gets said, and that by people I hardly know, as opposed to the friends and relatives on my list whom I *expected* would communicate with me there. I am always looking for pleasant folks here to read the journals of--

Several of my LJ friends jumped ship to DW when LJ allowed crossposting of comments from friends locked posts, but didn't come back after that was fixed due to subscriber outcry.

Personally, I prefer LJ since I get more 'charadters' per post. More room to properly express my message.

Plus, FB is unstable as hell.

I'm still here, and come out and read when I can, life has just been *really* crazy for the past year or so.
