Forums once abandoned for social media platforms are making a comeback today.

It’s all coming down to security and privacy which is a priority for most internet users. Many question where their data shared to social media sites ends up. Others are concerned about censorship of their opinion on topics such as politics. Big brother is watching and archiving your every word posted to social media. Post something they don’t approve of and your account is suspended, most likely for life.

On our forums there is a warm inviting sense of community where members don’t fear the moderators when posting a subject, or commenting on a hot topic such as politics. It’s like comparing Apples to Oranges, social media can never compare to forums. Here’s a forum post with more info about FidoSysop Forum and how to become a member.

In particular, politics are a steaming hot topic. But the big boys in silicone valley are pros at political bias censorship. They hide posts critical of the other side. And suspend members trying to speak the truth. I’m really sick of it all and have given up on social media.
