There are a lot of folks who will claim that there is naught but misery to be experienced from having a presence on any form of social media.
While I can understand where they are coming from, because there is a ton of filtering both figuratively & literally that happens on these sites.
However, you can’t simply lump all social media platforms into the same exact pile. There are some like Reddit that are actually great sites for specialized advice & information on all sorts of subjects. Each page at reddit is its own forum or “subreddit,” & they’re intended to be niche communities reflecting the base subject of the forum. For instance, the woodactually working subreddit is going to be filled with posts about long saws, wood grain quality, techniques, & beginner questions. You’ll actually see woodworking memes & lighthearted videos as well. There are also marijuana-focused communities on Reddit, especially the kind devoted to the medicinal cannabis industries in each individual state. I l gained more from my state’s medical cannabis subreddit than what I learned at the dispensaries themselves. There’s information shared about cannabis edibles & the cannabis concentrates that I can’t find anywhere else. There are sites like Leafly & Allbud.com with information on marijuana, but you don’t always get frank reviews of certain cannabis dispensaries that are in your state. The subreddit that I frequent the most is for my state’s legal cannabis industry, so I can get store-certain reviews within hours of them being written & posted. If a new strain is developed by a dispensary, you’re not going to find reviews on Leafly instantaneously. You might have no idea what the strain’s genetics are like unless you look at Reddit.
