FoxFooty and social media

Post by Presti35 »

I tell you what, the FoxFooty instagram account needs an overhaul.

Why do they allow multiple troll accounts to post, some with personal attacks, and with absolute nonsense. Triple M and 3AW instagrams have fought against these kinds of accounts, but fox footy is all for it. I mean they still have the bare arse profile pic account asking is we think shes fat.

They need to do better, but seem happy with the amount of replies they are getting even though they are heavily trolled. I've unfollowed them for now, not that they'd care.

One thing about Nicks BB after almost 25 years, I've never been personally attacked, I've always been able to start a conversation, or add to someone elses conversation. Now I'm sure I haven't always been the perfect poster. And I'm sure I've probably embarrassed myself at least 200 times, especially in my earlier years.

There have been small waves of trolls come and go. But there's never been any real angst or personal attacks. And that's why I really dont like the socials and miss the old NicksBB days when this place was flourishing.

Social media is terrible for the most part, especially if you want decent analysis on the footy. I avoid it like the plague so from what you're describing, it doesn't sound like I've missed much.

Forums like Nick's are always my preferred place to express my thoughts on the football club and how we're travelling. It's a great place for robust opinion and analysis without crossing the line with personal attacks. I think we do a good job of being a passionate community and having good rapport with one another.

Internet forums seem to be in general decline with the rise of social media, but maybe all the angst and personal attacks on social media outlets might actually give forums like Nick's a new lease of life if people grow tired of social media and seek alternative forms of communication.

True Jezza.

BF seems to stay strong. But forums surrounding an individual club have certainly gone much quieter with the rise of social media.

I dont take notice on social media these days i find it full of garbage and mstly lies.
Along with the main stream media they spin it all the time.
But its good to see other angles on things i guess but i make my own proper views and opinions.
