@FauxBen wait was there a tabletop community on it?? that's fascinating
@videodante @hayley @austin_walker @FauxBen yeah, it sucks. My g+ usage has shrunk quite a bit from a wide range g place to discuss whatever to what amounted to a group dm with about 90 ppl, but there are like discussions that lasted months there with a ton of embedded images. Irreplaceable stuff. A lot of friends I now have irl are ones I met with first there.
@FauxBen I still haven't forgiven them for Google Reader.
Google: let's coax the majority of people away from desktop RSS reader apps, make them dependent on us, then kill RSS in one fell swing of the axe!
I'm glad people are now starting to realise that social media is not the best place to get news. I hope this'll lead to RSS making a comeback in a big way.
They can't track or deliver ads to rss readers.
Does anyone think that killing (or, at least, seriously maiming) RSS wasn't their plan all along?
And just look how far out of their way they go to scare ppl out of using normal email clients like thunderbird or kmail.
And how badly they want your phone number...
My favourite pet peeve is Google maps and how if you turn of location tracking you're not able to set your home and work addresses. The button is there, but if you press it it asks you to turn on tracking first.
It's a bookmark. It remembers a single location. Someone has explicitly added code that prevents you from adding it if you don't agree to store information about where you've been at all times.
