I feel like internet communities are dead.

I miss IRC. I miss forums. I miss Livejournal.
While these things are still around, their heydays have passed and ghost towns remain.

Social media platforms can be fun but they really are just shameless self promotion. How many likes? How many followers? How many retweets/reblogs/shares...? I feel like everyone just wants to have their egos stroked by these things and not actually talk to each other.

So I feel lost. Like I've got nowhere to go.

I've reduced the amount I visit facebook, I think I've mentioned this. I'm happier for it. Because in the end, people don't really give a shit whether you post or not. I feel that people like me better when I don't say anything. They just want to hit like on pretty pictures and move on. They don't care about my existential crisis' or personal life. Even though I tried to "connect" with others by offering kind words of encouragement and or just random "hey I like this thing too" kinda stuff on their posts, I feel like I didn't really get much back. Of course, there are a select few people that have always been kind to me. But in general it just feels like no one actually likes me or wants to talk to me.

I've just deleted a bunch of people from twitter and mostly follow "official" accounts so it's more like a news feed. I feel like people just follow you hoping for the followback... and then unfollow you later. Like they just want to boost their followers count and not actually be friends. I notice that a lot of the recent accounts that follow me are very "self promotion" looking in their profiles rather than just everyday people.

I still rant personal life on twitter because it's the easiest way to crosspost to livejournal when I'm out and about. Because let's face it the Livejournal Mobile App is a fucking pile of steaming shit. It never works or lets me post anything despite being logged in.

Lately I've been using Discord a lot because with my personal friends we've got our own little channel. It's not quite the same as IRC yet where everyone has good discussions. Mostly we just post funny pictures. But I hope it will be more like a chat room where I can feel connected to my friends like #PSO was back in the day.

It's weird to have social anxiety yet crave social comfort.
I don't want to be famous, I just want good friends.
