I really only used this as a means of finding information about upcoming anime conventions. This all started when fanime really screwed up the hotel registrations and the web servers were constantly stuck with the internet's cache. Not only that but social medias like "twitter" and "facebook" allowed users to have a "BACKDOOR" link to the actual hotel reservations. As of now I am FORCED upon re:joining twitter after i deleted my old twitter account.
Windows live (2009....windows live: Dead/ Onedrive....ongoing)
I really think facebook/myspace changed the world....forever. Other major websites/search engines tried to imitate them by implementing better features. I join this for one reason alone. Onedrive (formely: Skydrive). Windows live messenger was a nice feature..however it would be nice if skype had those features that windows live messenger once had.
I never joined yahoo 360 but somewhere along with their updates, they now ask users to join regardless. I still have not submit much info but the only good use is their groups. Abottleofdjinn is the only good dedicated group that discuss about genies and their activities, sharing stories and pictures.
It has taken a while to get to know google+, but with google trolling on how it spies it's users, it kinda felt short lived. It felt like facebook but the photos aren't as complicated or as bad as facebooks. To be honest, it felt like google is trying to be everything from social media to business. Sadly google is only good at one thing and it's searching files. So this account has been nothing but posting old files online.
I really hate facebook for many reasons, but i had to join because recommended it. It's already been 3 months and to this day I really have NO use for it. I am glad i only have 2 friends ( and ). Reason why is because has literally SPAMED my messages with useful images/comments and some that seem unnecessary. Facebook's photo album is still confusing, it is easier to just submit a photo, but when you want to organized them, it is very difficult to understand or try to make it how "YOU" want it to be. Sadly, i haven't receive any comments nor notifications of people seeing my photos. So joining facebook was a bad idea.
(note: yes i have facebook, and no, I am not going to add you.)
I have to admit, THIS is a very interesting site, all you do is just fine something you like, pin it and enjoy it. It felt like a cork board where you want to take notes or have images posted on the wall. At the same time, It felt like this has inspiration images for me to find themes and draw. I have a lot of people pinning some of my own artwork images and loving them.
WTF is tumblr? to you it's just a journal, to me it's just full of Crap. Look up above, I have literally like more than 3 and now i have tumblr. I'm at a lost for words here but if any of you have ideas, shout them out. I join because joined in.
Originally this was for D_princess group because of how well people share their stories and experiences. I though people would retire using deviant art journals and use livejournal instead, sadly, deviantart notify it's users who watches me of my journals. However i am happy i first met
literally send me hundreds of invites, and frankly i got very annoyed. I joined within 3 months and i had no idea what it was design for, until my cousin said it was a site for online applications. Seriously? why would they make it?. Are people to lazy to make their own pdf and resumes? I left because I submit ver 114+ applications, including wallmart and haven't gotten a single call back!
2 years later, SEGA CALLED.....and I was in.
I had high hopes of ani-pan, but i found out that site has been dead for a long time. I felt sorry for users who spent money to make that site grow. Now all i see is a website full of empty promises
Japanese version of deviant art. Thats how people are labeling it, it's how my friends view it, and so far... they have Literally NO GENIES... until magi:the labyrinth came...
Deviant art (2001...ongoing)
This is the only site, that actually got me to do commissions from you. It's how it started my business, it's how i made friends, and it shows how often people visit's and comment on your works. It's journal have people respond to you, and wishes you luck, and also you receive critiques from other people. At the same time, you can also make purchases from other artists. A lot has changed over the past 10 years.. but now it has literally gotten to a point where people left / endure the new changes.
As of now, deviant art has become the most active, while tumblr / facebook is the least active! When it comes to self promoting, I think deviant art is doing a better job doing that.
