I never really cared about 8chan personally, but it was a containment for a bunch of shit and taking it down was like taking out a buttplug. Then having all of that "shit" just spew out all over the internet.>>400
I agree, I had kind of avoided them in the last 4 years or so and have found it to be much better in terms of quality and context.

That 64chan idiot also spammed his shit on KC the other day too. Despicable.>>398
I think the culture is still alive, just different. And if you insist on its death, then it sure died before 8chan.
I never understood why there aren't more new people coming to smaller boards though. I mean I'm not really one of the ancients and I'm very much part of the "new world" but I still found my way here, I wonder where all the other hipsters and internet adventurers are.

If I were to guess, i2p, onion, irc, and if you’re the real god of adventurers, telnet.
404 Name: Paperplane : 2019-09-23 12:05
onion and irc are dead, I've been there. Telnet is way too insecure.

I've reached the point where there isn't anywhere left for me to post, aside from occasional half-hearted posting on some slow alt-boards that don't have much going on. And a lot of alt-boards are just as bad as or worse than 4chan (e.g. Tohno-chan is the latter). There's nothing worthwhile outside the chanosphere either. Socially speaking, the internet has run its course.
407 Name: Anonymous : 2019-09-26 04:32
I wouldn’t say Tohno-chan is worse than 4chan, I hang out in their IRC and occasionally post there and it’s fine if you like the negative chatter or find it cathartic (or actually have a waifu)
Aside from that, it’s not our fault you can’t have fun with the internet anymore, there’s plenty of things going on even in 2019 that I wouldn’t give up for a lot of things.
I think you’ve grown up, but I think it’s short sighted to say that there’s nothing worthwhile on the internet.
408 Name: Paperplane : 2019-09-26 09:36
Just post everywhere from instagram, to facebook, to discord, to reddit, to 4chan, to Kohlchan, to here and beyond.
Every layer has its cool niches with their own peculiar culture. I don't see why one should limit themselves to a single layer. that's like only ever eating pasta.

Eh, that's just unfounded elitism. As I said, every place has its interesting niches. Denying that is just as ignorant as the """normie""" who never goes deeper than Reddit.
has a point.
This place isn't really for full time lurking, once you've been through the entire catalogue so switching between the aforementioned sites is refreshing.
To make my case: There's young people making content today like we did way back on good old 4chan/b/. We made our rage comics and image macros and they're doing their stuff and contrary to popular belief (among elitist image/messagebiard users) not all of this is surface level trash for """normies"". Even on Facebook there's places for wierdos. Yes, ""zoomer"" wierdos but they made their own subcultures and if you're not jaded you can find merit there. As I said, it's pretty ignorant to dismiss an entire platform based on the ancient 4chan "us irrgulars vs the evil, invading normalfags" dichotomy. If you have a knack for the obscure you'll find your entertainment everywhere, even on one of the most used sites of the internet.
Well, or you could try in vain to emulate 2006 4chan by posting anime on /jp/ spinoffs.

There’s more to the internet than 4chan and social media. I imagine most people don’t want to use those sites including 4chan for privacy reasons. Just remember not to take it too seriously and to have fun on it, the internet isn’t serious business and I think that’s why people don’t like social media, it’s hard to separate real life and the internet on it and the privacy concerns compound that.
I think the dig at anime & /jp/ spinoffs was uncalled for as well.

This but youngins don't use facebook anymore. Facebook is home to pretty much everyone on the internet that's over the age of 26. There are indeed plenty of odd people there and there's lots of active chat rooms.
417 Name: Paperplane : 2019-09-30 15:17
See, people still have an outdated opinion about this. There's no privacy nor seriousness involved if you make a fake account with a throwaway email. It's just like another forum account.
And I don't even buy the privacy concerns. I know very well about the motivations. >>416
Yea the popularity is waning but facebook hasn't been used as a traditional social network by young people for a long time now. I mean look at how facebook was used back then:
People made a thorough personal profile, uploaded lots of pictures of themselves and then posted every hour about what they're doing.
You have one or two meme avatars and a meme name and do nothing but share posts from memepages and shitpost in groups.
Only boomers still use it the original way.
The actual social media bit now happens on Instagram and snapchat where people still blog about their oh so interesting lives. But even there there's some unique cultures that don't use these sites for thier intended purposes and quickly subcultures form.

If you think privacy concerns about social media are outdated you haven’t heard anything about privacy in a long time.

Not really. Data you don't share online doesn't just appear there. And anything beyond that like cookies and meta data aren't a specific social media problem.

What we have here is a phenomenon that is, for a change, deserved. So much of what children today are offered is junk. Pokemon, Power Rangers, PowderPuff girls, Sailor Moon just to name a few, are filled with violence, sexual innuendo inappropriate for youngsters and cardboard, stereotypical roll models that all seem to be the same character over and over again.
I love Carol :)
