Haha. Well.. You do know "the mid 2000's" actually means around year 2050, right?🤔🤔
Øystein Prieš metus
@Calz1234 Nope.. I typed a little mistake though, but corrected it now. But i.e "mid 1800's" is around 1850. Så why should suddenly "the 2000's" any different then the rest of the centuries?🤣
Calz1234 Prieš metus
It actually means from 2000 to 2010.

There was a social media site in Hungary, way before Facebook or Twitter was born, named IWIW. It had almost half of the features that today's social media sites use. Messages, posts on other people, clubs (groups), timeline etc. Sadly, site had to be closed after literally every user left to Facebook. I saw as my Friends deleted their accounts, and over a week there was none. RIP IWIW

My first experience on facebook was literally "why the hell does anyone like this? It's Myspace but you can't customize your page with HTML." now I'm SUPER glad that 80yo grandpa chuck can't inject their own HTML code into their page. I'm sure it probably doesn't have Petya like last time.

Social Media - AKA "Look at moi!"*, I need you to validate my existence... There are two or three companies that I have to follow for updates, but 99% of my "social media" interaction consists of deleting ALL friends requests - why isn't there a f*** off option, that stops them all? I have all the privacy options max'ed out but still get them from complete strangers I would positively loathe to meet. *Kath and Kim reference -

I think I spent more time on G+ then all the rest combined. I never had a Myspace account or Twitter and my only interaction with the sites is hitting the back arrow. I had a Facebook account to log into several games but never posted anything and closed it(sudo closed it you know Facebook) in less than 6 months.G+ aI used to play D&D and other Table Top games on.
