    Why are they going down? Seems like they all just changing owners that's all.

    Same tbh

    I don’t do any social media really, never have done. No actual interaction is there, just people posting whatever they can that makes their life look interesting for 5 mins, never mind the 23hrs and 55 mins of mundane shit they put up with everyday just like everybody else

    All fake bollocks and drama imo

    I have no plan on letting this place 'go down'. In fact since taking over the membership levels have risen by 200+ and I plan on keeping it going in that direction. Forums give more privacy to individuals over social media and for the steriod/bodybuilding market I think that's a good thing so I don't see them dying out. Traffic levels are also rising to the site because of the search engine optimisation stuff i've been working on in the background.

    Ken’s journal always reminds me of social media

    Always feel like I’m reading Facebook somehow

    Exactly how I feel about it
    I actually hate Facebook with a passion
    Everybody seeking attention and posting everything about their personal life just to be liked
    Not for me that
    I'll just keep posting semi naked pictures of myself on here to get a few thumbs up from random guys

    theres something really strange about 'fitfam' Instagram, Its either a selling platform for people. Or its a really weird narcissistic place full of look at me bullshit.
    I really despise instragram people, vapid cunts. FB very similar but less so I think.
    Been a member of a few fb private ( lol ) groups and they are full of all the cunts that get fucked off of forums. Strangest fucking thing that you have people advising well not really advise but just saying up ya tren dose basically and how much they run and then with one click you can look at all their pics and they are without fail scraggy fucking earwigs with teeth missing. But they act like they are full of good info and look like Dorian.
    its weird as fuck.
    I've been banned from every group lol...
    You can see who the dealers are in these groups and who the labs are being touted straight away, they usually let you know very quickly, most often they are labs with a really poor rep also.
    Forums I hope might see a bit of a comeback for the information side of things and also there is a community feel to them, not just randoms shouting bad advise.

    @Reacher yup you nailed it, insta is basically a place for people to push products in the fitness world, it's a business promotion tool now.
