With the sunsetting of Google+, I'm scoping about for options.
I love the beauty of this place (simple, clean interface; real formatting––that responds to keyboard shortcuts, yeah!; and autosave for posts, double-yeah!), but there's a couple of things that are bugging me:
1) Following personal interests instead of following people. While I understand why the "topics" over "people" follow option (less focus on "follower count", popularity, etc.) I prefer to follow people so I can learn more about them through the topics they're interested in ... it is a much fuller adventure when you connect with individuals and all their myriad interests.
2) The compression and metadata stripping of images. Yes, I know this platform isn't meant for photographers especially ... but still ... here I am posting one of my own works and it will be an "orphan work" if someone decides to take it from this page (which is also surprisingly easy to do ... hrrumpf!). Hmmm, I wonder if one can host an image elsewhere and link; will it still show up in the post here? Things to learn ... things to learn.
How's everyone else liking this place?
