Why are image boards so dead today? Did everyone bail to bigger online platforms? Is Tik Tok and Telegram the new norm now or did most anons just give up and go offline? Why do so many choose platforms that have no privacy or free speech? It feels like a whole generation of people suddenly vanished.

I normally do not go online as much anymore. There are only a seldom amount of sites I even use today, one being Ebay just to buy some stuff I desire time to time. Social media seems pretty dead then again I have no presence on the major platforms that require phone number identification so I may be totally out of the loop. Boring day today with not much I need to do so I am online, for now.

What made older anons leave image boards for normie corporate/govt controlled platforms though? I remember the days anons would brag about their opsec, dox popular people on major social media sites just for fun, they loved shitposting every day and then suddenly after covid every image board seemed to die out, barely anyone visits image boards anymore. Did the covid lockdowns get them all hooked to normie platforms? I distinctly remember before covid-19 boards were populated with users. Now it's next to nill.

>It wasn't after covid, this shit all died when 8chan went down and all imageboards were seen as nazi platforms.

Yes, it did die down some after 8chan went down for a while, but I happen to remember there still were 30 to 40 anons posting daily and regularly when 8kun first went up online and I had some conversation with people there. I also remember this place had more people too. It was around the later period of the covid scare that the user base started dropping like flies and today it's near dead. 4chan use is also way down now that they banned VPN use.

>People went to discord and a shitload went to reddit.

Reddit is cancer. I guess Discord is a little bit better than Facebook or Instagram lol, but I refuse to give away my personal info (like phone number verification) to online social media companies, using a smartphone or giving that data away is just asking to be doxxed, bullied and harassed. So I guess I'll stay on sites like this that still allow anonymous posting.

Its an end of an era. Its like asking why there are so few people on BBS or IRC these days. Tech changes and people just head to the next thing because they are ADD and that's where the majority of people are. Young people dont even understand what opsec is or why its important. They will gladly give their info to any 3 letter agency that asks for it. The Internet is increasingly centralized and almost entirely under surveillance. Shit sucks.

Because Imageboards ban the Son of Man from posting even non-sexual things. If someone comes in like the Son of Man and starts posting actual FACTUAL IDEAS and things they ban me for "spam". It's never changed and my suggestion is that you should kill yourself so your life cannot go around and cause mischief for others and so myself can have peace knowing you're dead.

>It feels like a whole generation of people suddenly vanished.

millennials were the last pillars to be actually holding it up. broccoli heads were never going to be apart of what kept imageboards going and most of them are too narcissistic for anonymous places. /b/ on 4chan started off with having lots of weebs even while it was mainly random focused, but fast forward into time, moot gives the middle finger to the kind of people he once originally wanted on his site, and he took the easy way out to be working for jewgle to leave the site to its demise and into 2016 where tourists both young or old developed their first fetish for interracial porn on top of their political alignment kink. its an endless story of betrayal when it comes to imageboards, but you shouldnt worry about something that has been dead for a while now. this topic has been discussed more times than i can remember, so im not going to bother tidying it up in autism sprinkles when the answer is so simple. you'll just have to enjoy these places like everyone else does. take this raisen-dick idiot for example >>47103

Only problem is not all of us enjoy normie gatekeeping platforms which run contrary to the anonymity of open sites such as this. Whatever though, I'm getting adjusted to not using the internet as much as I used to anyway. Luckily I have years worth of media backed up on offline drives I can still enjoy from time to time, as well lots of booze and family/friends to enjoy it with. My bother streams most his shit, so when we visit one another we get drunk together and watch random funny videos from Youtube or wherever. It kinda feels like the death of social life online, but at least there is still informative content and lots of media entertainment.

I have come to the conclusion image boards are dead because critical thinking and opposition to corruption is pretty much dead. Image boards were once a bastion of free speech and individual opinions often uncensored and unsuppressed. They were not originally part of the corporate establishment. Oh my God how the times have changed!

Depends. If you have a social media account with almost no followers, if you're shadowbanned etc, you get zero replies at your posts. Doesn't matter what kind of post you make, if you're a big name at social media you'll get lots of replies immediately even if you just upload a photo of your poop.

I was offline for around a month since my harddrive crashed and had to get another one for my computer. I'll be honest, it sometimes gets boring without the internet or being able to keep up with current events online, but it's not horrible. You get used to being offline after a couple days and you find other things to occupy yourself with. I started watching the Breaking Bad series I have on DVD box set. Pretty classic show. I also did more yard work and landscaping outside when it wasn't as cold out on certain days. Now that I'm back I find out I haven't missed much of anything, bullshit hasn't changed in the world much, system is still corrupted as ever before, people still killing other people, debt insolvency galore as usual, etc. Oh well.

Think email, but with social media. There are different servers, referred to as instances, that people can sign up to. Each instance can communicate with each other; for example, users from instance A can view, like and follow users from instance B, and vice versa.

It's called the fediverse because it's federated, has nothing to do with feds (I thought the same when I first heard about it a few years ago).

In most cases when considering certain names out there, they're in bad hands or indirectly controlled by shitty people. You're actually posting among people that probably know each other and are tempting others outside of their circle to post. What makes this all bad is that it takes away all charm of how an anonymous community should function but instead it leads to things like drama, literal who's being mentioned, personal attacks, etc. It's an old problem actually that's been enabled by those thinking it's progress and "convenient" to have something so backstage like an IRC/discord where people storm in to have special treatment and allowed influence. And by being a lurker and not contributing, it pressures many of these assholes into doing the most work when dealt with low activity or boredom.

You can go to Gab, Minds, Telegram, (Elon's) Twitter or even Bitchute & Rumble chats and find people posting all kinds of stuff that would be banned from any other major platform, plus we have sites like this too.
