I (temporarily) surrendered my phone because it was distracting - so Snapchat, YouTube, etc, and now here I am.

TSR is the student version of Instagram, minus the posts, likes, and those minor differences.

Same circumstances - I only go on my phone during the weekends though.

I feel like the drawbacks of having a phone heavily outweigh its benefits, especially students - you can easily get caught up in drama that has nothing do with you (not speaking from personal experience, some may infer) - there's a good chance you'll be on a social media platform for hours, just scrolling and chatting, when really, you are procrastinating, so there's my opinion. I'd love to see what people think

true, but other users don't know who you are & what you look like, like IG does.

Maybe, but thankfully at least on TSR I'm not subjected to an endless stream of pictures with meaningless quotes on them or people attention seeking with their personal photos (that one thread not included). Just wish TSR had instant messaging tbh.

at least ppl like ROTL94 see my POV :emo:

hmmm the instant messaging (or direct messaging)

do you think this will bring more benefit to TSR, or will it eventually have the opposite effect (ppl taking advantage, spammers...)

We kinda have it already ... if you have the function turned on you can send/receive private messages from other users.

Forums have had that since before Facebook existed.

i could see how useful this is, like you can literally talk to someone directly, DM and expect a reply within seconds, but i can't help but think that it would eventually be a negative thing


am i just being pessimistic?

:ashamed:

sorry ian - i think you're misunderstood
he may have meant the direct messaging, as in literally hit enter, and the other person hits enter, and you can have a full convo that takes seconds rather than 'email' 'wait' ,'send' and that process

The TSR mobile app lets you do that ... and add multiple people to a group chat. It’s a throwback to the days when messaging platforms were for pinging texts back and forth rather than audio and video calls and all the other fancy stuff they throw in there now.
