Thread: App & Social Media (among other ideas)

  1. #41

    Re: App & Social Media (among other ideas)

    I am so tired of this subject.
    Anyway though, it's the etc... part of your first line that stands out to me there.
    Discord is considered a social platform ie. A platform people use to be social with others on. Whether there is a global consensus that it definitively falls under a pretty broad and generic term such as 'Social Media' is not really of much importance.
    In a search engine (Ecosia) search you get such statements as 'Discord has become one of the most used social media of all time, crossing over 100M active users'.
    And 'Santibanez stumbled on a social media platform called Discord, a five-year-old video-and-voice chat app that’s a cross between Reddit and Slack'.
    Or in a thing titled 25 Most Popular Social Media Sites - 'Discord is a quickly evolving VoIP platform that allows users to connect with like-minded people and communicate using text, voice, and video services — making it a kind of hybrid of social media sites like Facebook Groups, Slack, and Skype'.

    I personally think it is perfectly reasonable to suggest that it could be deemed a part of 'social media'. But here's the thing even if not I only said what I did because of what I explained before about clarifying MY opposition or doubts about that platform, and I wasn't the person to mention it in this thread first anyway.
    The thread IS now hijacked by THIS pointless discussion.
    Discord was brought up in this thread. I clarified my feelings about it. Makila clarified a few things too and I said it's all fine and that should have been all there was to it.
    But you came along saying I am hijacking the thread by saying what I did and here we are....

    I do see what you mean about the App and it being about getting in the APP STORE rather than YOUR desire for an App. If anyone wants it like an App in the meantime then they can use my tip.

    Anyway let's just drop it so people who want to discuss anything else pertaining to websites that people socialise on, and how CSFBL can utilise them can.

    Pardon my ignorance, but I don't consider Discord as a social media platform. If it is, it isn't a form of social media we can use to acquire new users.

    As far as apps go, I don't want an app for my personal preference. I wouldn't even use it. I think an app would also help obtain a significant amount of new users.

    "Have you tried that new baseball game in the app store? It's a great game to play in your off time"

    I hope this clarifies my point. This thread was meant to be about using social media and an app to obtain more users. Nothing more or less. Like I said, I don't mind if you want to discuss Discord here. Most of the text in this thread is now about Discord.

    OK, we can consider Discord a a social media platform, that's fine. And thus there is no problem with you mentioning it in this thread. You have my apologies.

    As far hijacking threads go, I think you did hijack this thread. Not to worry though, there are plenty of worse things you could have hijacked.
    Are you a serious CSFBL competitor?

    Seems we differ on the definitions of 'social media' and 'hijack' too then.
    I'm not going to battle it out over what is deemed to be hijacking or not though, and you can think what you like but that was never my intention. In 5+ years here I have never been accused of doing that and I tend to stay quiet most of the time.
    I come out with what I did on this because I saw someone else say something that I thought maybe related to what I had said previously about it. That's it.

    Who comes up with the definitions anyway? All is well.
