Big sites like Myspace, Youtube, & Facebook are GREAT, but as time goes on, you start to notice the so-called improvement changes made to those sites are for THEM, not you. Facebook use to allow for you to pin your favorite apps to your horizontal profile menu. I use to have my store very visible there, but then they removed the feature. So what’s the point of marketing/selling a brand product or service on FB when they hurt your ability to do so trying to force YOU, the little guy/gal to buy pricy advertisement when that would make more sense for a medium to large fortune 500 business. Likewise, I remembered a time in youtube’s policy where trying to sell & market your stuff met up with crosses as well. Now they seem to welcome you using the platform for such free advertisement on your channel with limitations ofcourse & after sending it around to a handful of people they stop ya. Isn’t the point of being on these networks to have a way of freely REACHING potential customers or simply having an open audience? Then there is the online surveillance & targeting of certain individuals & their content. Although I have not had any major issues as of yet, I’ve already taken the initiative to seek an alternative way of operating just in case. I’ve seen accounts closed down for the darnest things like telling the truth about something political. If conspiracy theorists were so crazy, then let them be, why chase down their content forbidding them to post such accuracies or speculations that are dead on. Who’s flagging them, because I see content daily on youtube that’s questionable that are still up & accounts that are constantly violating their policies that are still active. This is the sort of thing that gets networks like them disrespected. So what’s the solution? It used to be going to places like Peoplestring & Zippcast for some, but these sites are apparently BUSTED now. Were they the victims of ruthless hackers, could it be that they were unable to survive on the world wide web or what? So what now…look elsewhere, find another comfortable spot online (like here) that’s less strict & prejudice where you can forward your fans to OR acquire a social network program & run your own forum under a good webhost & make sure to protect your site from hackers by subscribing to a service like Cloudflare, Sitelock, etc. Ofcourse keep a presence on these other popular sites, but your REAL content should be privatized under your own site. Too many online scholars, entrepreneurs, etc are dependant on these popular social sites that can bury their account overnight & some of them have no backup site or duplication of their content to start again & I’ve seen this. Atleast use an alternate free service on the internet to post your stuff, if you don’t wish to invest some money in a private site that YOU run. I’ve done this & believe me, you will be better off. – Lhisa
