Back in the 90’s I joined internet relay chat and made some fabulous friends. We had all sorts of fun with each other and we gathered together in what were called Chat Rooms. Each chat room had a moderator and would impose their will on the people who chatted . They handled complaints and kicked and banned people from the room who were misbehaving. The only problem with these rooms were that people have different beliefs and values. So naturally if the room couldn’t accommodate your point of view you’d leave feeling resentful and bitter and you would start your own room. You would then proceed to steal members from the room that offended you. And so the politics of chat was experienced by all.
When facebook arrived on the scene they sucked all the IRC chatters into their realm and accommodated any and all points of view except for pornography. But now they’ve gone too far. I’ve been around long enough to realize that this doesn’t bode well for facebook because the software to create a social network is easy to find. All one needs are a team of willing people to help you create it with a business model that works and members will start leaking out of facebook at a steady pace.
This very network , the Nikipress News Network was created because of an IRC spat. I created it in revenge for not having any place to share my views on Christ. There is more to the story than that. This is just part of the story. I was recently censored on facebook because I dared to actually have an opinion about Italians during world war two and of Turks currently. Read my previous post if you need to understand what the issues were . But now I am banned. So ? I’ve already found MEWE.COM where you can create your own account and drag your friends without having to experience the scensorship of Mr Zuckerberg . Facebook , your days are numbered. You’re nothing more than a hyper inflated IRC chat room with superiority issues.
