Poll: Places where I used to be

My first introduction to the concept of using the internet as a place to interact with people came via a highschool friend who set up his own private discussion board--my main memories are of madly changing user icons, names, and taglines, so that every few days it looked like an entirely new batch of people. I don't actually remember the sorts of dicussions we had (aside from the flame war over the legitimacy of Contemporary Christian Music), and can't even entirely remember who all hung out there. And then the friend abruptly pulled the plug on the whole endeavor, leaving most of us to drift over to Xanga.com for a little while--but the site was set up differently enough that the crazy conversations and mad churn of playing with identities stuttered to a halt. I tried using it as a platform for sharing the bits and pieces of fiction I was writing, but it never really gelled--until a college friend pointed me over here to LJ, which has stuck with me for almost 10 years now.

Where else have you folks gotten your social media-ing on?
