^ Brilliant. :]

The social sites I use all have pros/cons over one another - If I could take the pros from all of them, and make one site, well...

Where do I sign up for Twiblrbook?

Twiblrbook sounds awesome xD

I also updated the first post so :D

If you could make your own social media site, what would it be? What would its contents be? How are people going to connect with each other?

I would make a chat-like social site like you post in a client and you can share logs and save them... It's like Twitter but more live and you can make convos in them xD

I'd call it Chitchatr X3

Twiblerbook sounds interesting. I'd probably sign up.

As for this, I haven't really came up with anything. The best think I came up with is a site where it's like twitter and Facebook, like you befriend someone or follow them. Approximately 300 characters of you want to type a post. But it would be like YouTube also. You can make a video instead of a post, you can control who sees your video post, and you can block someone's video. And you can add it to a favorite video list if you really like the video post.

Idk, that's the main thing I came up with. It would be called Tube'Tastic (best name I can come up with at 6:53 am.

Should've added the word tube at the end of my Twiblrbook thing. xD Because all three of them do support youtube videos but not most video sites. ;;

Another *side topic* I had in mind (probs forget down the road so better do it now!): What improvements would you add to an existing social network?

Example: enabling a chat feature on Tumblr, etc.

Actually that is not a bad topic Megan!

Personally, I dont want to add but want to remove the Google + requirement in YouTube since it is just so pointless. I don't really get that :/

But a new website design for Facebook can't hurt too ;D

I'd probably allow YouTube to not require a Google+ account to post comments like what Gunner said, but the one thing I'd like to improve is to remove that stupid "daily post limit" on Tumblr because I sometimes exceeded it and I had to wait for hours for it to reset (which is around 4:00pm for my timezone).

You surpass the tumblr post limit there, Hikari? Wow. And I always thought I posted sooo much and never get locked down because of the limit. I believe Tumblr's post limit is 250, and within those 250, 75 of them are pictures. So basically you are limited to posting 75 pictures/graphics/gifs a day.

Ahh the controversial Google + Integration to Youtube. Honestly the most pointless thing out there imo. Everything was going great in the Youtube world back when I was...17-18. It was troll-free and everyone got along with everyone UNTIL THE FIRE NATION ATTACKED until everything went to shreeeeds. Yeah, I'm gonna echo you both, It has got to go. Since then, G+ pretty much lost its integrity. lol

One thing I'd like to improve one social networking is to increase the character limit on twitter to 200 characters. 140 is not enough. Also, I'd like to add bold/italic formatting because sometimes I'd like to add some flair to my tweets, as well as accent. xD

I didn't even know Tumblr had a post limit. I mostly lurk on there, 75 pics a day is crazy though! Tumblr's probably my favorite social media now, I don't really use Facebook or Instagram much anymore. I'm thinking of getting a snapchat but idk.

Mostly on my phone at school or work when I'm bored. When I'm home I'm normally on a forum like here or playing games.

It seems amazing to think that we're starting to use less and less "paper" invites and flyers nowadays. Facebook and other social media are becoming effective ways of announcing events, as well as knowing how many people are actually going or not. I did this method last year with my niece's birthday party, and it was a huge success. We saved a ton of money and paper on invitations.

Do you think the use of social media is effective on this for other type of events or announcements? Do you think we should go back to paper announcements?

I'd say it is pretty amazing how social media is more effective than paper since it spreads the word faster and it is eco-friendly too <3

I know! It may benefit the use of technology so much, but it also has its disadvantages, obviously. When my sister used facebook to deliver invites to everyone we know, many of the older people (mainly grandma and great aunts and uncles) don't have much access to facebook, or don't even have a facebook at all (or any social media for that matter), and for that reason we had to make little paper invites to mail them out.

My town's events are announced on both television, social media, and on paper. Since last year, attendances to parades, carnivals, and other events skyrocketed because they advertised using twitter and that reached out a LOT of people...which is good \o/

My laptop. :D I browse Twitter daily and often find myself clicking the tab even when I don't plan to write anything, haha. Habit!

New peeps! Gunner will be so happy :D Welcome aboard~

I wanna shift things a little towards Facebook. Guess what? It turned 10 years old! To celebrate, Facebook came up with a neat little idea by creating a video of all our facebook moments, from the day we joined to our best posts, to what we are now. I made mine yesterday, and I just...laughed at myself because most of my first moments on facebook were with my ex-boyfriend and I'm glad none of those were in that video. xD



For those with facebook, you can view/share your #facebookis10 video by clicking here. What do you guys think of that? Pretty neat, huh?

OMFG NEW MEMBERS YAY! Welcome to the club guys! :B

And as for Facebook, I checked mine the other day and it was pretty funny. :] I don't wanna share it because it is too embarrassing especially since most of my pics there were with my ex-crush lol

It's weird, my FB video. The most irrelevant images and posts came up. Pretty bad video, IMO. Might share it later.

Mine also had pictures of my nieces and cousins that I shared...and some random pictures that facebook chose that thought they were....worth sharing. xD It was funny as well. I shared it for the lulz, but other facebook friends of mine had it better (and probably longer) than the one made for me.

Okay guys, how bout a new topic?

Do you still remember your "social network" life before Facebook and Twitter and the like were a thing? Have you heard of sites that were popular in the olden days?

Pffffft, I used to be a myspace addict before facebook and twitter came around. xD Myspace was the reason why I learned basic HTML, and mastered it like a boss. I was 14 when I signed up, because my best friend (who then became my boyfriend and now he's my ex) encouraged me to sign up. Which is weird because you have to fake your age in order to get an account. You had to be 16 to sign up. I'm not certain when they lowered their age to 13-14 at some point because I was two years in with myspace and I saw members who were 14 or 15.

*sigh* I'll never forget those days. I wish myspace was popular again. It was really fun back then. xD

I never used myspace tho :[ But before, when I was starting to become an Internet addict, there was a great social network site called Friendster. It was a lot like Facebook but with more customization. It was really fun then but alas, as pessimistic Friendster was, Facebook took over and Friendster swayed in the background until it became a bad gaming website ;~;

MySpace was starting to die out once I got around to social networking. I tried signing up and using it, but everything from the interface to the content was too convoluted and confusing, so I gave up :c There was also Xanga and, like you mentioned, Friendster that was around too. And then Facebook started taking over, and to be honest, it's much better than MySpace ever was.
