Where's a good place to go to meet new people these days? Livejournal seems mostly dead, and I don't think anyone uses yahoo or AIM anymore. It's weird, but it seems like with all these websites to keep people connected (facebook, twitter), we just grow further apart from those we do talk to. Instead of people being interested and involved in other people's lives, they just get these tiny superficial updates that don't mean anything.

I remember the good old days of journaling, where you could meet and become really good friends with lots of really interesting people. Now it seems like no one can be bothered. It's kind of depressing.

A friend of mine and me have been talking about this recently. Its so annoying how social networking is meant to bring us all closer together but instead it drives us all apart. I think a lot of it is that it annoys people because it basically forces them to be online all the time, whereas with blogging you could post every few days instead of every few second. I miss the good old days. Ive been doing a few friend memes trying to increase the amount of people I have who are active. I feel like all the people I care most about dont bother posting anymore ever. :(

I agree completely. In a way it's brought me a bit closer to family I normally wouldn't talk to all the time, but it's not really talking is it? It's just people throwing out little tidbits about their day, or sharing big milestones, and then when you do see those people, you have nothing of importance to talk about!

I stopped posting when I realized everyone else had, and the stupid site kept going down :-/

I'm going to try to make more of an effort to do the same. I've set up a reminder on my phone to do it. Not just to keep this place alive, but because I really need to start writing things down again! lol
