Social network neg Show more
Tbh beside selfhosting it I feel like this wide fediverse isn't really better than Twitter or something like that, on the social-pressure/alienating side of social network.
Ya still have the feeling to be bond to many persons, yet it's a very fragile connection...
So you feel really inconfortable / walking on eggs / don't want to lose you dopamine spike of likes/boosts yet get exhausted by trying to maintain your bond.
Social networking is a full-time job even virtually...
I think technology can. Something like social media can create a wall between people. In the back of most people's head they're something that causes them to treat a person online different than offline. There are some folks I've kept in contact with online that like to say something like "I was talking to so an so In Real Life" and jokingly I remind them that they're having a conversation in real life too. As exaggerated as that may sound.
