Pic is a joke, I have mixed feelings and actually enjoy it overall.
>which social media do you still have and why? what do you like about it?
I have most actually, but only post art on instagram. I do it irregularly and don't use stories often, but I feel I should throw my stuff on the net somewhere. My small group of followers are nice since the subject matter I draw has a super niche market.
Most other accounts are either by force (one friend insists on using it and only it to communicate OR I had to use it for a group project) or to hoard my username kek. Also just to keep an eye on people and developments.
>what's the most embarrassing display you've seen online?
Aside from known cows? Eh. An online art friend of mine deleted his tumblr because he was called out for having a fat fetish. Never heard from him again. RIP
In a more general sense, I feel embarrassed for the generation of teens who have affiliated their face and entire identity with their shitposting and youthful dumbassery on Tiktok.
>what was the nostalgic 'golden age' of social networking for you?
For me? 2008-2012 dA/FF.net/etc. sort of places. The net felt cozier, and was probably even nicer before that.
I also like mid-2010's tumblr despite the SJW childish nonsense. Overall I REALLY miss the ability to customize pages on bigger platforms. Even Twitter got rid of the minimal customization it had in the early days.>>86142>i am an artist but i dont post on social media because i feel like no one looks at it even if they do see it
This is fair. I posted about this in another thread, but recent social media art communities aren't as friendly as they used to be. Most followers don't engage with the art like back in the early 2010's…or even mid-2010's.
I've been surprised sometimes, though. My work isn't particularly good and I have <100 followers but a handful regularly like and pay attention to my characters and worldbuilding, so some people are still like this.
