Sign of the Future Internet?  
I never thought Twitter would become the place online where I have the most interaction with people. LJ seems to be fading away, and everyone has moved on to other internet locales. Since I don't do Facebook, I guess it's me and Twitter - at least till something else presents itself! Which I hope it does not too far in the future.

I have a Twitter, but have never really tried it out. I'm mostly computer less at the moment, but I guess it's still LJ for me! :)
Ithithildyn on December 3rd, 2011 11:50 pm (UTC)
I love LJ and wish more people were still around. I miss the interaction.

I never imagined spending my online social time anywhere but LJ. It's so weird.
Ithithildyn on December 3rd, 2011 11:50 pm (UTC)
Yeah, it is.

I have yet to see anything of LJ slowing down. It's still the same amount of posting that I've seen on my friends list--the only quiet times are Saturdays, but there are still a decent number of posts today, too.

If LJ goes away, I'll just use Dreamwidth--I refuse to touch Facebook or Twitter.
Ithithildyn on December 3rd, 2011 11:52 pm (UTC)
Well, maybe people just hate me and it's not LJ. Wouldn't be the first time. Dreamwidth is a duplicate of LJ, so no love there either LOL

I hate twitter, so I hope you'll at least maintain a presence here.
Ithithildyn on December 3rd, 2011 11:55 pm (UTC)
I'm here, just doesn't seem to be much point most days, I guess.

I'm still (kinda) around, but I got eaten by work this year. :(

[waves] So I've been reading. Hope you and the kids are well!

I never get interaction from twitter. Or very darn little. More on facebook.
Ithithildyn on December 4th, 2011 12:42 am (UTC)
Never been on Facebook, so no way to compare the two. I think Twitter has been active for me is that I have people from fandom, and from my old blogging days there, plus people they know.
Taxicab Messiahdonna_c_punk on December 4th, 2011 12:45 am (UTC)
I'm going to stay here. Even though I have Twitter and Tumblr, I never use them, because I can't figure them out. I really don't care for Twitter, since it's so limited with what you can write. I don't understand the hashtags, trending, any of that crap. I'm too old to relearn the Internet. Eff it.
Ithithildyn on December 4th, 2011 12:50 am (UTC)
I'll go where there's people to talk to.

I have a Twitter account but haven't been active since March. I seem to stick strictly to LJ. And I refuse to get a Facebook account. The more I hear about it, the less appealing it becomes.
Ithithildyn on December 4th, 2011 10:35 pm (UTC)
Facebook kinda creeps me out - which is why I'm not on there.
Amy H. Sturgis: Book/Swansoneldritchhobbit on December 4th, 2011 01:04 am (UTC)
I'll be honest: I couldn't stomach Twitter. Tried and failed. The word limit was far too restrictive; I felt as though nothing of substance could be said, and so everyone was reduced to speaking in bumper-sticker slogans.

But I'm old and crotchety, don't ya know. ;)

I've been spending a lot of time on various LJ communities recently that seem to be quite active, but it's not a fair sampling, to be sure.
Ithithildyn on December 4th, 2011 10:34 pm (UTC)
I was one of the last to give up on email lists and was dragged kicking and screaming onto LJ. I'm sure 10 years from now, I'll be someplace else and feeling nostalgic for LJ LOL

I think for me it's that so many years have gone by for Highlander. I miss its prime. Many of the HL folks have moved on to new fields. I'm spending more time on Twitter than LJ too, but using my name. Maybe that was a mistake. Mayhaps I should have signed up as adabsolutely there too. Anywhozit, I'm using tumbler to follow the young folk and their Sherlock creations. Also, I hope it will be a good venue for my flower pics. We all have our strange little habits...take care.
Ithithildyn on December 4th, 2011 10:33 pm (UTC)
I'm still too paranoid to use my real name on places like Twitter. I do have a G+ in my real name, but that's due to trying to have a controlled RL presence on the internet more than for any useful reason [g]
Black Rookgrachonok on December 4th, 2011 07:08 am (UTC)
Things did slow down in my corner of LJ, and I'm no exeption - there were days I posted three times a day, and now about one post in a month. Mostly because I've become lazier and more closed person and more involved in RL.
But I'm reading my f-list regulary, and usually comment when I have something to say:).
And I doubt I'll ever change LJ as my main internet home - 8 years here, after all, and I'm creature of habbit:).
Ithithildyn on December 4th, 2011 10:31 pm (UTC)
I never thought I'd give in and join LJ and give up on email lists, but I finally did. Nothing lasts forever on the internet.

For some reason I can't seem to stick with Twitter. I'll get on a streak, and then I'll forget about it for a while. Meanwhile, I'm still trying to figure out what to do with this Tumblr.
Ithithildyn on December 4th, 2011 10:28 pm (UTC)
I do the exact same thing. So much so, people know not to unfollow me as I will come back eventually. Right now, I'm in a Tweet mode.

Tumblr kind of baffles me. The pretty pictures are nice, but I don't visit all that often.

Oh, I'm always reading. But I don't have a lot to say right now. The life of a substitute teacher is not terribly interesting. Also, no one wants to hear me (a) whine incessantly about the fact I don't a have a full time job, or (b) gush about Benedict Cumberbatch.

But I do read everything.
