I'm open to change but not that kind of change.


I'd imagine any 2010s retelling of Aladdin will be loaded with preachy politically correct messages. Not interested at all. My niece watches Sesame Street and the left-wing political preaching is really extensive.


Well the original 90's Aladdin did show the culture of that time like when Jasmine took a fruit and the vendor was about to cut it off.


I was getting more that they would re-write or ignore that stuff to promote 2010s religion of peace messages, given 2010s news headlines.

I don't have Facebook, have used it three or four times in my life and shut it down soon after, for various reasons. When it comes to news I'm big on following blogs through their RSS feeds, and discussing stuff in blog comments, IRC, or forums. I did use Twitter for a while but you never know who you wind up retweeting or following.

Yeah. Facebook can be toxic for some people.

I get some post that I really don't want to see on my newsfeed like road accidents, porn memes, extreme right and left wing politics, friends who are always looking for a fight, backstabbers, gross stuff, violent images and many more.

I just learn to adapt over the years and use the unfollow, block and hide functions. While it doesn't eliminate some of the posts I don't want to see it does significantly reduce it.

Its very informative too. Some of the science and space stuff I post here comes mostly from facebook.

Also some of the members here we get together in a facebook group chat. Makes the discussions we have there more livelier since it is real time. :grouphug:

Eh, I really don't like social media. I used to have Facebook years ago, I forget when, but I found it was getting more and more and more fake to a point where I just had to leave. I have considered getting a new account to advertise my writing but I don't know. :orly:

I don't care much for social media either. Everything gets exaggerated to the point where posting about something as simple as washing your hands becomes a drama fest. :happy: I haven't updated my Facebook since 2013. Same goes for my Twitter. I think the decision was worth it, even though I didn't use either site all that much. I mainly used to to keep up with people in my school, even though I prefered to talk to them in person. As much as I dislike social media sites, I dont mind talking to people on forums.

I have facebook and instagram.
Find both of them pretty usable Facebook to keep in touch with many people whose contacts I otherwise would have lost, to keep track on what is going on around and even extreme left- and right- wing propaganda is welcome (as moderate leftist, I find both hardly bearable, yet it is good to see what is the enemy thinking).
And about instagram - I like it and I am kind of proud of my own gallery there.

I have Facebook but I don't use it often. I try to look for lost friends or to sell stuff. Instagram is the same story; I have it but don't use it that much. I have friends and family who add me and I just scroll in it every once in a while. I got better things to do these days so I don't even pay attention to it.

Have FB and Twitter. Facebook is for friends and family and Twitter is for my thoughts that I don't feel comfortable posting on Facebook.

I have Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr and Instagram, but Tumblr's the only one I use somewhat frequently. Facebook I mainly use for messaging people that aren't on any other sites, and I rarely do more than lurk on Twitter or Instagram.

Hmm...I had no idea this was spun off into a social media thread.

I did start using Twitter again BTW, wiped out everything and started a new account last month.

I got a Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, and Instagram.

I basically exclusively use Twitter and Tumblr though, Twitter for posting whatever nonsense pops into my head (or livetweeting shows) and Tumblr for posting pics of things.

I only use Facebook to chat with some friends and I don't actually use Instagram at all, I just have an account to follow people I'm interested in.

I have both Facebook and Twitter but I mostly just post on Twitter nowadays. I use Facebook for keeping up with offline friends and family mostly and I post a lot more in anime Facebook groups than I do on my actual timeline. I use Twitter mostly for posting about anime and other geeky stuff and interacting with my online friends and anime fandom.

I use Twitter a lot. It's where I vent my frustrations on terrible books. I also have a Tumblr that is 6 years old.

I got Facebook and I do rants on YouTube too. So I'm kinda a media darling online.
