Inside My Skull

I miss you.
I remember when I had this crazy job where I sat in this tiny room waiting to register patients in a study and no one ever showed up. I got hooked on the All My Children message board with a bunch of people following the Bianca lesbian coming out story. When that went away we tried to keep those connections and I lost all but one. Even that one is sporadic.
I miss them too.
Facebook isn’t the same at all. I lament. Probably no one will even read this. I cry in a vacuum. I wouldn't do well on a desert island. Well ok I could try.

|Contrary to the herd, I agree with you, Laura. I am on Facebook, but only because my friends and others ask me to be friends; but I never go on Facebook without someone sending me a message that I need to answer. I feel that the privacy protections are too loose on Facebook, and, although there is little that I want to remain private, I don't feel that my entire life should be an open book for all to peruse. I vastly prefer Tribe. It is much more focused-one can follow certain threads and they make sense. There are better privacy protections. There are multiple tribes where one can have contact with those who share a common interest, and without being distracted by all sorts of extraneous fluff. I know this is a minority opinion, but we "Tribers" are (of course) more discriminating and recognize a quality product when we see it. ;-)) I am also sad and also miss so many people who have abandoned Tribe for Facebook, but, with patience, they will return. The only real issue I have had with Tribe has been its frequent crashes, and, even though that has improved lately, I am still wary. I do think that so many got frustrated with Tribe being down so much, that they switched to Facebook. Hopefully they will return. So, for now, you and I will stand fast with Tribe and wait for the hoards to return! And besides, we can message each other!|
|Ahh Jenn, I so wish I could have spent more time with you at Tribal Massive. My time was so scattered. Yes let's talk more.|
|i hear too many scary stories in the news about facebook -- anyhoo, even if there's a dry spell, our tribe does revive after a while. i'm sticking around.|
I concur...Tribe was the place to be 6 years ago. i will say it seems to be running a lot smoother lately but the majority have either left completely or do not check in as much as they used to. You're right, Facebook is not the same. As much as I like Facebook, it can never replace Tribe.
I still check in every couple of days, but I'm not on here for hours at a time each day like I did before.
But I'm still here :)
|I'm still here! Tribe is pretty valuable for many of us in the ATS world. Especially for the remote students/teachers. Lots of discussion on movements and concepts. I know sometimes it feels like a ghost town around here.|
|I miss tribe so much, too. I mean, hey, there's nothing to say we can't take it back. It's running all right these days. It's just that everyone drifted away. Let's all keep posting regularly & maybe, in time, others will follow.|
