|RoR is a social medium. Your frustration with Facebook is easy to understand. I created an account in response to some requests; but I never got engaged. I only see it as a stringing comment board. I never found anyone using it other than that/. I never found a way to create a Topic Thread. However, as I said, I never did much anyway - my high school class for six months; Austin Tech Republicans for about the same. I do not have a Twitter or Reddit or anything else. I goto specific boards like this one for Objectivism and another set for numismatics. |
But Luke, you were an early adopter of Meet-Up and a strong advocate for it here, which is why we have all those Meet-Up forums here. Meet-up is also a social medium. Interestingly, the platform does have a fairly rich Discussion utility. However, although I am in a dozen local groups for techies and one for Objectivists, no one seems to make much use of the Discussions. Mostly, you get a lot of frontpage comments in response to the announcement of the next meeting.
You reach out to many people in many ways. It seems to me (not being you) that you might just gather your friends and form a discussion group of your own. You were hosting in your own home. Have you done that lately?
