Welcome To Chatty BoB's Place

Now that the CB and Amateur Radio is kaput because of the Internet. Today, we can form real relationships across the virtual world thanks to online forums, encrypted email, Zello or the Calyx Meet. The benefits of virtual relationships on the internet are that they can provide opportunities for people to connect with others who share similar interests, hobbies, and values, regardless of their geographical location. Virtual relationships can be a valuable way to connect with others and form meaningful connections in the digital age.

Mainstream Social Media is being replaced by the Fediverse.

It's time for these mainstream social media sites to realize it's over, the corporately owned social media fad is Kaput! They destroyed it by hammering us with misleading advertising, then some block us from using ad blockers. It's filled with hate, censorship, bots, fake accounts and misleading information. These corporately owned mainstream social media sites are not in decline, it’s pushing up daisies. Just like the fad of CB and Amateur Radio, the fad of corporately owned mainstream social media is Kaput! People are slowly moving on to the next fad, which for us is the fediverse.
