@kensanata that sucks, because one of the reasons social networks exist is keeping in touch with people you know in real life. And I can't do that here. But I can do it on. But I am not doing it because I know it's a trap, and the only reason I can do it is because my IRL friends are trapped too.
It's a vicious circle.
@drequivalent I spent years on G+ with hundreds of people who shared a common interest with me and many of us were happy to have found this new community without necessarily bringing along friends and family from Facebook, for example. I think keeping in touch with friends and family on Facebook is perfectly fine. And if that's all one would like, then I guess Facebook it is. Migrating the entire family to a different network is hard.
