I think Dianna (who was being called "the ***** bandit" on Livejournal articles about her) did not want to settle down at first (also why I think Achele broke up) and then when she finally was, Taylor was long gone

@SameeraKhan And before tumblr there was livejournal. Twitter is a terrible social media site too btw. Most social media sites are. The issue is that a diverse group of people are now lumped on just a few sites and more aware of each other which leads to constant fighting.

@TimHarford Other ways include Dreamwidth which came about around the time LiveJournal was taken over. You can subscribe to RSS or Atom feeds & it'll happily show them. Reader has explicit control so no spam issue.

I do wonder how many people are willing to pay for their social media site, far too many complaints at the moment seem to boil down to 'I want someone else to pay for it'. Twitter is free, but You Are The Product.

In 1999, when Brad Fitzpatrick got tired of his friends asking him for copies of the script he used to keep people at home updated about his freshman year and sat down and hacked multi-user support into it and LiveJournal was born, he had time to figure out the hard problems.

All this doom feels more like when aol fell out of favor than when livejournal fell out. Simply for the sheer scale of users and how it's used. Only this time we're the middle aged people scared about our internet house falling down.
