I find myself using LJ less and less, and the arrival of G+ which seems to be growing into the type of community I used to find in LJ once upon a time, makes me wonder if that's the natural successor to LJ.

The other option seems to be Dreamwidth, which seem to be doing some very neat things, and seem to be more interested in developing a community than LJ have been for quite some time. However, I can't help wonder if they're just trying to plug the holes in a sinking ship.

I recently realised that most of my LJ activity has been deleting anonymous spam comments. LJ seem to have given up trying to prevent spam. There used to be a tickbox on the delete form for "mark as spam". That has disappeared, suggesting they have no intention of doing anything to curtail spam. The simple solution for me is to disable anonymous comments.

Looking back, it's a bit of a pity. I remember the science fiction community we used to have on LJ, and that has all but evaporated. We have bits and pieces of it on other social networks, but it seems much more fragmented, and too easy to miss interesting stuff. It would be wonderful if we had something like that again.
