Its odd isn't it? I have been perplexed about this for a while. I mean are people just less likely to get involved with things now days? I have been shocked when we do giveaways. Thread after thread of actual NICE prizes with virtually nothing to do but post a pic or guess a number to enter and we may get 15 or 20 entries. There are 150,000 plus members and 15 entries!?!?!? Wtf? What gives with people? We still have a ton of great peeps and many of them I text, talk to or email with on a daily basis but it could be so much better with just a tad of willingness....

Only 19 voters so far..... hard to believe some years ago we would have by now a couple of hundreds. :sad:

I'm kinda leaning with it being in the times we are in. 10 years ago we didn't have all the things to distract us like we do today. That may not be it in itself but I think it's a contributing factor.

I've seen activity on my local forum drop off, too. Someone started a FB page for Ottawa Riders and I think a lot of newbies look to FB first.

Voted BTW. Wish I had Zilla on my trip to Paris last summer. Didn't even think about it.

That's a good thought. We have InstaFaceTwit to compete with.

Well whatever it is I'm old school, don't do the InstaTwitFace or whatever. I don't got enough time for all of that. I figure if it's important enough I'll get a text or *gasp* a call from an actual person.

Going to keep bumping this thread until it's poll time closes. :bump:

I'm only recently active here, but will gladly give a vote if wanted. From what I read the poll is in this thread? I'm still getting used to using tapatalk and am not seeing any poll options, any help? Thanks in advance!-Steven

I'm pretty much the same. I don't do any social media.

I don't use them either. I had facebook, twitter and bunch of other ones till about six years ago. I read some research studies that made me get rid of all of them. There was more negative than positive information. They reduce productivity, cause interpersonal communication problems (people have problems with face to face communication), create relationship problems, people spend less real time with others...etc etc. People are not living in reality anymore, instead virtual reality. Every time my wife and I go to a restaurant, amusement park or just a walk down the street every one is head down looking at their phone updating their status or something.

Everyone just does it and social media is now what the majority of people use to communicate with and "meet" on to share their lives. The truth is they are a huge waste of time and do not provide any real means of social interaction. In my psychology undergraduate and graduate courses I have learned how social media sites stimulate gratification and reward centers in the brain. That is what keeps people using them. Being social media is huge business, psychologist are hired by the sites to help them develop ways to keep people using them.

Anyway, I digress..... VOTE FOR NINJA GUMBY
