I wanted to ask this question to my fellow ATS'rs. Is social networking ruining your good time online? For me, it is. I don't use any social media website on purpose. I say on purpose because I deleted my facebook over a year ago but I have a gmail which wants to force google+ down my throat every chance it gets.. so about every other day when the ToS changes I get a nice big message to make my google+ better. The best part is, the part to skip it so it doesn't continue to harass you, is as tiny as it can be. I wanted to make this thread about posting comments online and not about google+ specifically though. It seems like a lot of sites decided that instead of having their own login they require a facebook or a disqus account. Which for me is a hassle. Besides being tracked on the same IP though, it seems like corporations are intentionally funneling us to specific social media. To track us? Perhaps. Maybe it's a marketing scheme. I really don't know but I wanted to discuss it because I don't see anyone else doing it.
