    I think people are moving mostly to facebook groups (I don't have FB) and Reddit. The most active community I currently am an active member of is based on a telegram group chat. I know DJTT tried to shift towards Slack once, I mean it didn't hurt to try but that sucked. I also wonder why this is, you see it everywhere. It also could be because DJTT has really become more blog centered instead of forum centered, and there is less awesome stuff happening on the forum? Maybe because it kinda has lost it's personallity? (I mean Ean has been gone for years now). Or maybe it just needs to offer something extra? Currently it's just practically equvalent to a subreddit on a seperate domain.

    Yeah, I see that too. But is it as simple as DJTT reaching out on Facebook a little more?

    I hated the subreddit for DJs. Buncha people that don't know what they are talking about trying to tell me that I'm right or wrong.

    I deleted my social media accounts years ago. May have to start using them again, but I don't want to...

    Forums definitely got replaced by SM (which is a loss, IMO). Facebook took aim when it started pushing for businesses to create groups around their pages. Unfortunately, the timeline algorithms are a mess for decent discussion.

    Also - you lose the anonymity of forums. I know a lot of people (me included) are happy to ask stupid questions from behind a forum handle.

    This statement is 100% correct! The algorithms have destroyed the internet as a whole. I wish they would stop using algorithms. Fat chance of that happening, but one can only hope.

    The problem is that the general public is too lazy to organize their feeds. Personally, I have 32 different feeds on Facebook (20 regions and 12 interests). That way I can just view my feed on chronological order dependent upon where I want to engage while sitting on the toilet.

    Pretty much everyone I talk to (even DJ's, Promoters, and Business Owners) didn't know you could have separate feeds/lists. If you are going to do any type of event promotion, it is a must. There's no need to promote your service or event thats taking place in California to people in New York for example.

    What company are you referring to? I’ve done that with YouTube and it always leads me to a dead end of videos I would never want to see. How I fix it is, I delete history and cache. Then I get better recommend videos. It sucks and is leading people into small covers of the internet.
