    It looks like social media is changing. Has anyone tried the "new" platforms: Gab, MeWe, Parler, and...I am sure there's more.  I know Parler is going through some problems with Apple and Amazon for their conservative posts, but it should be back up in a couple of weeks.

    I already got more social media than I know what to do with (Facebook, Tumblr, Reddit, etc.) -- I don't need any more.

    Yes, both. But as a UK national, they are a bit too US centric for me to get much benefit. Parler relied on external servers, including Amazon, and has been temporarily closed down. I believe Parler's apps are also gone from Apple and Google appstores.

    I don't know MeWe.

    Twitter's share price has dropped massively since it deleted Trump's account/s.

    From those, I've only tried MeWe. It sucks. It is freer than Facebook as it begins (or was when I checked it out about a year ago), but that may change. By freer, I mean less restricted. The drawback though, is that storage space is strictly limited there, and to surpass their limitations one has to prune their stream constantly, or pay for extra storage. That's not for me.

    One more thing--it was very hard to get followers on MeWe, and the few that did come around were primarily bots.

    I too have developed a huge distaste for social media. Were it not for needing to promote my projects, I'd not bother with it.

    No. I use Facebook strictly to keep up on local road conditions, local restaurant menus and events. I use Instagram to DM with friends and post sometimes...and that's it. I was an OG social media user (MySpace! LiveJournal!) before I had kids but these days I have little time or patience for it and won't join any new ones because I'm finding that social media sours my real life (and it's never been a significant source of traffic for me either).

    Mewe seems to charge a monthly fee.

    As far as online promotion goes, I don't don't detect any significant, relevant changes. The big three are Facebook, Instagram, Twitter. Okay, maybe Pinterest is useful too. I wouldn't recommend putting time and energy into smaller, obscure social media sites.

    Who's going to be on Trump's new platform?

      I'm sure that will be just as successful as Trump Airlines, Trump Vodka, Trump University, Trump Steaks, etc.

      Most likely no one interested in anything you write as you write educative stuff.
