Reddit or Facebook?

I am leaning toward joining the Reddit group if PT disappears completely. It looks like we can use our PT name instead of our real name. Since there arenít individual rooms it looks like we would scroll on by posts that donít apply or we arenít interested in.

Has anyone thought of the pluses/minutes of either site for our group? I donít have a Facebook or Reddit account so Iím limited in my understanding. I just canít imagine no longer having PT friends as a part of my daily life. I may not post everyday but I do read posts each and every day!

I donít have Reddit experience, but I do like the anonymity PR gives. Iím okay with fb, too, as Iím always careful posting information.

For some reason, I am unable to join Reddit. I’ll stick with fb- it’s easy to use, and I don’t share anything embarrassing!

ETA- I was able to get on Reddit, but I find it confusing. I’ll visit it when I have time to play, but for now I’ll stick with FB (and hopefully PT won’t leave us!)

WalkDontRun, you are correct about Reddit. I hate Facebook because of using your real name but also because it extensively tracks you. Recently, they've been called out, by a whistleblower, for their unethical business decisions of putting profit over the mental health of children. I joined Reddit.

What I hate, though, is that our PT group is being broken up.

I'm in both groups. Here's the pros and cons, for me anyway:

FB: pro - easier to navigate, con - less anonymity. *Although you can join the PT group and either not share your PT name, or just share within the group (people in the group can't see your whole profile).

Reddit: pro - same anonymity as PT; con - too much information on the general boards (Although I just go to the PT group there too.)

Anna posted this:

I welcome all to our PT KindredKonnections group. If you are not sure how to use Reddit there are many YouTube tutorials. Here is an easy one :https://youtu.be/hwginx9hp1k


I hope to see you join us. AnnieG,wordgirl and myself are the moderators there.



Reddit is a wonderful site full of any information you might need. I am sad about PT as I have been chatting here for a very long time and consider many chatters here my virtual friends.

Do a search for KindredKonnections.

I've joined both. I like the anonymity of Reddit. Not sure I spelled that right.

I joined the Facebook group. I don’t use my real full name. My last name is modified.

I’m involved in a lot of craft and vintage sewing machine groups, as well as community groups. They are informative, helpful, and keep me on Facebook.

WalkDonítRun, I joined the Reddit group because being a teacher for many years I am trained to be proactive and anticipate problems 😀 I donít know anything about it but I am learning and have posted a couple of times already. Iím not giving up on PT yet. Feel free to pm me. And if you ever want to meet in person I donít think we are too far away. (Donít know if that is ok to say in a post, but no one is moderating anymore.)
