While I don't go as far as disavowing social, as there is still useful information and amusing content, I none-the-less generally agree. The forum/message board format is superior for sharing, communicating and ultimately leaving a searchable historical archive for future people to use. Forums and message boards are just better for humanity in general for that simple fact alone (archival storage of collective knowledge).Fuck FB and Instagram. I hate that shit and will never join either one.
You can't (not easily anyways) do that with social, discovery of past content is an after-thought at best, designed solely around "whats happening this very moment". It has the "memory" of a goldfish.
