brian francis pretorius – my opera

The late My Opera Community friend and blogger Brian Francis Pretorius from South Africa. I miss him so much. He died a few years ago. Quite the marvelous friend.

After Opera Software killed off the online community, Brian and I moved to G+ (Google Plus) where we continued to have a good time. Then Google killed that off.

We continued on on Facebook, but the online fun was doomed. This WordPress has been kind of an archive.

I also archived my G+ activity on MeWe. MeWe is a closed community meaning you have to log in to see anything. These days I’m OK with that.

Brian Francis was fond of conventional telephone and used to call me a lot. I also called him. He was a heck of an ambassador for human beings.

G+

Last call for Google Plus. I had a great time there for years. It goes away April 2nd.

google plus to mewe import

MeWe imported 4516 posts of mine from Google Plus (G+). I think the other 982 were posts that were non-public.

I didn’t realize that I had so many. I do social media posting, in part, as therapy for myself. I guess I’ve needed a lot of therapy.

move your G+ to MeWe

Being a G+ (Google Plus) nutcase for years, I am pleased that there will be a way to move the data (to MeWe).
 
When My Opera community closed years ago, I was thankful that WordPress picked up that import.
 

where to go?

Still deciding where to go with G+ closing next year. I was a long-term fan of the My Opera Community. It closed years ago, so I primarily went to Google Plus. Now it’s going away. Facebook makes me too sad. I recently deleted all my posts and just sometimes lurk now.

Wharrr to go?

– MeWe
– VK
– Twitter
– WordPress

Some combination, maybe.
