FoMO? 1 billion users on this social media network.

Tiktok.

And yet another SM network I’ve failed to find time for.

Posting during lunch time, not doing Facebook or Instagram or Snapchat or TT. Connecting on Twitter and LinkedIn for work, not to be social.

I cannot imagine the time people must spend on these other sites!

MRF is a great place. Sorry we don’t have more contributors - but those candidates are clearly reading their phones in some of those other apps.

Mrs. Zealand is finding Tiktok an entertaining place recently but I have too much time invested elsewhere to add social media. I'm on 3 forums and that's my limit-- compute like it's the late '90s!

I'm not a member so that may affect my general distaste.

That said, there are exceptions to every... blah blah.

There are some very funny, clever videos on there.

But one has to wade through a lot of dreck and chaff, to find them.

So so sooooo many of the videos appear to be no more than someone's accidental discharge of the video button, and somebody says 'How'd that happen but hey I'll put it on TikTok.

As a member I suppose you could follow someone you like (if that's how it works) and minimize the pitfalls.

But it can be a deep dark rabbit hole, or akin to panning for gold.

Sayin' for a friend.





Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody matters or nobody matters.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

I value my privacy. I REFUSE to "use" ANY of the "Social Media" apps. I'm also annoyed when contemporaries text me. They have a phone IN THEIR HAND! A phone call can be completed in well under a minute. With texts, it becomes a friggin' ping pong game with the addition of "Spell Check" just to keep things confusing. angry villagers smiley

I let other social media curate the TikTok videos for me. I don't see them until they trend elsewhere.

I've told all the people who text me they can send me need to know or ask a about something that can be answered in one text, but any more then that, CALL.

Then if somebody sends me a text that requires a conversation, they don't get an answer unless they call.
