i was just saying this to a friend of mine, that facebook feels like "the world", as though everybody & everything is there, even though actually they are not, & you filter a lot of your own & others' information anyway. i was mostly making this claim in comparison with google+. i think google+ feels a little more claustrophobic, even, than facebook. it feels like you're sharing a document with friends on gmail or something. soon, it may feel more like facebook, but, until then, i'm trying to keep the fire burning here in lj land. all my friends have left for twitter, or, if not that, tumblr. others abandon their accounts entirely & use facebook exclusively. it's just not the same. i miss my online community. it's falling apart, nearly extinct. sigh. lj feels like the last vestige of true online homes.
