I know it's hard to see that way.... remember back in the day where many deaf people hang out in deaf clubs... having beers, ability to hugs, warm facial expression etc.... and then the internet born. Deaf clubs turning into cobweb..... Website booming and MySpace, Facebook, AllDeaf, DeafVideo arrived. It became very popular to hang out...and it's public viewing... same for Facebook but now it can set to private, more secure... Then suddenly Instagram, WhatsApp, Glide, Marco Polo, and many other mobile visual apps became very popular and quick, easy to use that you can take it anywhere you go. Give you an instant communication about what's going on privately. Yes, AllDeaf will fade and becoming quieter... Hey, look back what happen to Deaf Club... can't live forever...
FB is extremely popular because everything is shareable and visible plus ASL videos, too. Facebook is okay, but I enjoy IG for my interests. I only keep Facebook because I am in contact with my relatives from foreign countries.
I closed my myspace years ago because it was too much cluttered and messy. I've seen some plenty of funny profilers. The profiler was so obsessed with a movie, Sleeping with the Enemy. He created the fake profiler of Martin Burney and the background is full of Martin's faces. There were bunches of pictures under the gallery like the cupboard full of cans and his wife. The comments under fake Martin Burney were posted by Martin's wife, Laura and Ben. Crazy.
Don't change too much too fast, just now starting to understand how this works, never did fb but think have had two accounts, now up grading my device, having problems may have to send back and get another, but will have to have fb to join ASL club, but don't look for me to be using for much else
I'm not a facebook person. And know I can get toxic, so stayed off here a while. I miss some of the people that came, and I'm pretty dysfunctional at making friends. And I'm not really comfortable about talking about my hearing loss. It seems to bother more than it should some days. Like when I went to the park back home and realized that I couldn't hear the water babble over the rocks or a skipping rock skimming the water. Could still hear the current. I don't know what I really need to know about these things - reassurance, sympathy, or just someone to say
I’d like to see a live chat for deaf and hard of hearing. I’ve been looking but haven’t seen anything. I’m on irc and create my own channel for deaf but I’m the only one there. Maybe a live chat section that is open all the time so people can chat with each other instead of just posting and waiting for responses.
