Hello family.
Remember me?
I got co-opted by Facebook like so many others.
Well, they are offline this morning, and I am seeking life elsewhere.
Twitter is buckling under the pressure of the wave of "homeless" users.
My focus is going into LinkedIn and here on VO-BB.
It's time I remember where I came from...

Hope everyone's well and enjoying a Social Media fasting like I am today.

George

The temporary closing of the Book of Faces is an inconvenience in that my wife's only communication means through her work is Facebook Messenger. The mass hand-wringing is fascinating to watch. I wonder how many people reflexively tried to go onto Facebook to say that Facebook was down.

If Facebook ends up being dead, or at least heavily neutered, I hope people will come here to the VO-BB to get their voice over chats and Yayas. Feel free to spread the word that we have nothing to do with algorithms or Zuckerberg.

I will, Bruce!
I have to market there, but I don't have to LIVE there...

I just emailed my 2200+ email subscribers, all voice actors, and invited them to VO-BB.

... and it reminded me that I really should drop by here more than say, once a year. lol

Thanks for the nudge, George! I hope everyone's been doing really well! And actually ... my day has been remarkably less stressful in the wake of Facebook's downtime. I've enjoyed my own downtime from Facebook. Smile

I do Twitter more but for less, if that makes sense.

This is home and is simply more, better more.

I can't accurately answer the survey because several answers apply and the radio style buttons allow only one choice.

But if I have to pick just one, VO-BB is always my home. I missed the Facebook outage because I was driving all day, from the La Quinta in NJ, where I stayed for Uncle Roy's BBQ, all the way to south Florida (about 1250 miles).

I hope you had an awesome time, Lee! I so wish I could have been there. It sucks that the land border is still closed between the US & Canada. :(

We did, indeed, have an awesome time, despite the absence of you, Bev, and all our other friends from the Great White North. Hopefully next year (10/8/22) for sure.

I don't have a good answer for this, either. I don't tweet and I always check in here but don't always interact (have been trying to do that better). This is a happy place. A place of acceptance and love and friends. And why hasn't anyone brought cake lately?!!?
