Online communication and social networks
« on: September 28, 2019, 01:12:46 am »

Do you communicate in social networks? Where do you have active profiles?
Previously, I used only Facebook, now I use instagram. What social networks do you use for dating and why?

In China we use WeChat - which is a messenger first and social media second. I got off Facebook because it was too depressing and infuriating and feel pretty good about that. I still have Messenger since most people are on FB.

Some friends and I use Riot.im for messaging. It's reliable internationally, and more private than WeChat.

I don't interact in social networks, preferring direct contact or group chats

I use discord and Bay12 for my day to day things, and just text/Facebook messenger my friends.

Yes, discord is also quite a convenient means of communication for me. I have also been using this recently. And I recently registered on https://www.naughtydate.com dating site and I really want to find a woman for serious relationship. Do you think this is real?

Some friends and I use Riot.org for messaging. It's reliable internationally, and more private than WeChat.

When I open riot.org there's no button nor lable. Is some secret code required?

My mistake, it's riot.im - edited the original post. It's no better than Whatsapp or Discord, but is available in China while most other ones aren't.

Thanks! Very good thing! When I register it says the homeserver needs to know I'm not robot but there's no captcha? What do.I need to do?

Not sure - captchas are often blocked here. I don't think they had that when I started using it. If you have access to a VPN, you should be able to register an account and won't need it again after that.

captcha needs access to a couple of google addresses, if those addresses are blocked - one way or another - then the request for a captcha cannot proceed and whatever doorway it guards cannot be entered
