So true but why would they listen to an old?
But seriously, I think the new interface is designed in part to make individuals even more anonymous. I have a group of friends that usually read my work and a couple of them haven't read my stuff for a few weeks.
While it's possible I suddenly started to bore everyone, I'm beginning to wonder if my work is no longer showing up in their feeds.
Remember that clause in the new TOS?
It states, "We may stop providing the Services or any of its features within our sole discretion. We also retain the right to create limits on use and storage and may remove or limit content distribution on the Services."
It seems like the only time people interact with me is when I comment on their stories.
