As it is an open post, I want to come back to week 5 and talk about online communities. I think this was the most interesting week for me because my whole life is on the internet, inside online communities, that’s why it was nice to hear others’ opinions on this matter.
I personally believe that Tumblr is one of the best websites out there and, apparently, I’m not the only one who thinks the same way as there’ve been plenty of posts about it. But why is it so good? What’s so special about it? I have no idea but it just feels nice for some reason and it’s very addictive. It’s impossible to remember how many times I said to myself, ‘Just 3 minutes to find that one picture’ and then spent 5 hours looking at baby alpacas.
As I wrote earlier in my other post, I’ve never seen a mean or a rude comment. I’ve seen screenshots which were supposed to be funny but I actually never saw a real one myself. This makes me assume that it does depend on the community, but how right am I? There’re both positive and negative people in all communities but why some fandoms’ members are ruder than others? Can one rude comment define the whole fandom? I don’t know, I haven’t found my answers to this yet but what I know is that my profile is a lovely place full of rainbows; therefore it’s no wonder people I follow and who follow me back are the same.
