Journalists: G+ was a ghost town.
Me (a ghost): That's why I liked it so much.
Hi, I'm Craig Maloney. By day I'm a freelance computer programmer. By night I work on several projects including the Pepper&Carrot Fate RPG and the Pepper&Carrot Wiki. I'm also working on learning Godot for some other projects.
I help maintain Tootstream, which is a command-line client for Mastodon.
My main account is over on octodon.social but I check dice.camp from time to time.
social media grumbling, G+ Show more
So most of the G+ folks that I follow are headed to MeWe and I want to scream "that's just another silo" to them.
But w/e. Grrr.
FWIW I know tons of people on Google+ who really value their relationships there and the platform. This is gonna be a blow to a lot of people. (These people are 100% tabletop game designers and enthusiasts. I don't know of any other community that gives two shits about Google+.) (My homies on dice.camp know this, most of them are also on Google+)
What really pisses me off about the shuttering of G+ is that the community of folks that are there have limited options to rebuild those communities. And part of the reason those communities came together was because G+ was forced on Google users so it felt like a "safe" option.
And now they're going to be dispersed. I wouldn't know half of the RPG community without G+.
