What do you see on the screen?

Nothing until you put it on the page. And then, for someone to see something while they read that page? The writing must be Visual with a capital V.

Visual Writing begins Tuesday.

There are open seats.

So. Having been in the FB experimental streams….

One stream was all dead or someone just died or someone has cancer all the time.

Another was, all dead maimed animals WITH PHOTOS all the time.

Me, I innocently thought I just had a really depressed whacked out group of friends and if I just kept slamming “I don’t want to see this” in the right places, it would all work out.

But, no.

It was Facebook Nazi experiments.

Yay!

[That yay is sarcasm.]

I’m on my way out.

I hope you will go with me.

So Facebook keeps getting scummier and scummier, shifting privacy settings, manipulating newsfeeds, pushing weirder and weirder agendas. The latest is manipulating newsfeeds to see if lambasting people with depressing content will make people depressed.

Cripes. We so need a new social media site.

So.

I’m making my own.

I know, crazy, right?

Well maybe. Let’s find out.

Come visit:

:::AFWPUSHUP:::

 


*Note: The program I’m using to create that site — PushUp — is still pretty beta, it’s not mobile device friendly yet, you must verify your account using a desktop or laptop, phones and tablets will not work yet. Stress on the “yet.” Also soon to roll out: embedded vids and website links, yay!
 

Note II: I thought about walking you guys through it here. Then I thought, naw, why coddle them? Let’s go the Darwin route. If you run into trouble though, leave me a note here and we’ll sort things out. The program is pretty beta, there are still some rough spots.
