    +1...It seems many people on social media are narcissistic or lost in lala land,just my opinion.Actual web sites like the sniffer,calguns,perfect,union etc are slowing down but a lot of it is people just change,age,new hobbies,lifestyles,priority's, etc.or they become lurkers for whatever reason.Many people I know fish/hunt alot but don't post much due to a lack of response they feel a lack no interest so why bother.Now lookin at the girl pics wes showed us in that Instagram sample I may have t CK. it out,I ain't dead yet,lol.

    Yep many of us are from another century. We started out when there was no cell phones or computers or much else electronic. We had dial rotory phones, pay phones, b&w tv, radio shows. But we know a lot of useful stuff that the modern generations are clueless about. We can fix and repair things that they know nothing about.
    I can use my smart phone fairly well and my computer and IPad but I am far from a whiz with them. I too look at FB, IG and others and say WTF. They don’t interest me and I don’t think I’m missing anything important to life and well being. I’d rather actually read a real old fashioned book than waste time on some meaningless social media like SC or IG or whatever. We are dinosaurs but some day the current generation will be dinosaurs too.

    Re: Geez, where is everyone?

    IG is pretty much FaceBook for the cool kids. It’s just a picture and video only version of Facebook, also owned by FB. Posts are typically sorted by tags. You can search for #fishsniffer and see all posts that have that tag. #troutfshing, #trouttrolling, etc are popular tags.

    By using tags, you can filter out all of the crap, and just view what you want. Here’s a sample of what you see when you search #fishsniffer.

    IG is screen names, not real names. Most IG posts are also found on FB since they are seamlessly linked.

    Thanks, "Wes." Your snapshot explanation of Face Book is dead-on accurate. I was wondering if you could give us your take on using Instagram? I confess to being pretty discourage by this discussion. I don't understand how there could not be strong interest in an online fishing vehicle that allows sharing of reports, tips, and gear without having to play the ""social media" games, and quite frankly pay homage to the tyrannical gods that now rule 99% of all internet traffic. I would like to continue to support the Fish Sniffer community, but I refuse to support Face Book in any way.
