I don't know that I would say that I'm completely anti-city, but I have noticed at least one big problem with them.
I lived most of my life in a town of about 1,600 people, spent a few years in the country, and have spent the last 11 years in a city of about 300,00. The relationships I've formed in the bigger city tend to be much more shallow than the ones I formed in the small town. Add internet relationships on top of that and they get shallower still.
Of course it could just mean that I'm becoming a shallower person, so I'd like to hear from others who've made a similar switch. Have you noticed the same thing, the opposite, or no difference at all?
Facebook has upheld Donald Trump’s suspension but will revisit the decision in six months. (Ridiculous for many reasons including that more coordination for January 6th happened on Facebook than anywhere else...including Parler.)
Curious if you guys are even on Facebook anymore. I see lots of messages from people who have deleted it or just don’t use it. Are there any features that you miss which we should incorporate here on Locals?
A big welcome to all the new folks who joined the community today! (And yes I’ll be signing those cards and mailing them out to you ASAP!)
While we do plenty of politics and culture around here it’s also a lot of pet and food pics. And since we have so many new members today it seems like a good time to start a pet pic thread. Here’s Clyde...now everyone introduce your furry friends!
