    Crabber.net: A Twitter clone with extra features and none of the toxicity

    So, a friend of mine introduced me to this site called Crabber, which is basically a twitter clone. It looks extremely similar to twitter, but has no annoying ads and it does not actually have the toxicity that comes with being on Twitter. I have been using it for about a day, as well...

    The social media 'attention' on autism

    So I'm navigating a well known pictures and albums/pins platform trying to find posts regarding autism and autistic people and I'm suddenly swarmed by hundreds of posts, most of which are about either 1) autistic kids or 2) the PARENTS of autistic kids. I get it..parents of autistic kids are...

    A real doctor watches The Social Dilemma

    So,...I am on this forum. I also find that I am logging on to this forum,...a lot. Why? One part of my brain is like, "My people,...I can relate,...I can share." Altruistic thoughts. The other part of my brain is like, "Why am I constantly logging on?" "What do I get from this?" "Why am I...

    Why do autistic adults & parents of autistic kids often not get along?

    Over many months I've engaged with parents of autistic kids who have been scared by what they've seen from autistic adults on social media, and many autistics who have also been discouraged from engaging. These problems are not so noticeable on a forum like this due to the active moderation of...

    Using Social Media

    Hi everybody, I've been thinking about social media a lot recently and was wondering if and how you use it? Most of the people I know add people that they have just met, people that they shared a class with at school (but never spoke to), their colleagues and bosses. I'm quite a private...

    tbh: Another App to not use.

    Facebook buys app for teens to be nice Facebook bought this social media app that teenagers use to be nice to each other. I won't be downloading it because a) I'm far too old. b) I guess no one would tag me on it anyway so I would feel more isolated.
