WC Favorite Media Platform


This week is favorite social media platform and why.

There are two that I use. Blogger and Facebook.

I like blogger best; it is not as restricted as fb. On blogger I have friends like on Wednesday Challenge, and Top Ten Tuesday where we can converse on comments. We can post multiple pictures, tell stories, gripe, share good times and bad times. We can uplift each other in a relaxed atmosphere.

I have good friends like Yogi, Lydia, Audrey, and Berthold that are good for stimulating reads and conversation. I've read many a good book recommended by the challenges and friends. I get to share reviews of the books I've read and talk about my struggles while writing the story I'm on at the time. 

Facebook is limited, but not too restrictive yet, it's getting harder to keep up with the changes and a number of my friends keep getting sent to the doghouse for silly reasons. I haven't yet, but one friend shared a post and got clipped. I've had some shared posts removed and I couldn't even remember what it was.

It also has annoying ads. Take a look at one and a thousand just like it sprouts in seconds.  Groups are nice though, Writers2writers has a group, and we keep up with each other. My college and high school let me keep up with old friends too. My 50 HS reunion was much better as we were all able to communicate through them.

I've never done Twitter, or any of the others. My son wishes his daughter wasn't using one as its costing him a fortune in cosmetics.

Good answers!

I haven’t used Facebook in years. Twitter was good until Elon Musk bought it, and now it’s not doing so well. You might like Instagram if you want to try something new.

But I, too, like the friendships you can build through blogging. There’s no beating that. :)

Hi! My pick is Facebook! I love how you used different colors for your font! You blog looks great!!

I have to say that I'm *very* glad that I've kept and maintained my blog, even if most of my interactions are through Twitter. I haven't been on Facebook in a while, though I used to be very active there. With Twitter busily imploding, though, I'm starting to look at other options.

I keep trying to find the time to do more real blogging... I enjoyed all the bloghops and challenges back in the day.

Facebook is good for the keeping in touch aspect. I always forget I have an Instagram. Twitter is the bully place of the internet to me. I seem to favor TikTok. I think I use to have a Blogger or currently have one but am not sure.

Thanks for coming by Danielle. I appreciate your comment.

Michael, many are opting out of twitter right now. One egomaniac can really ruin a good thing.

Judy, I lament a lot of former blogger buddies now long gone.
