Under Ex-Googler CEO, LiveJournal Gets A Revamp, Promises New Services, Apps And More In 2014

LiveJournal wants to matter again, and is making a number of changes over the course of 2014 which the company hopes will make it a more relevant social networking destination, starting with a major revamp of its homepage and user interface, rolled out into beta just yesterday. On the horizon, the company is also promising several new services as well as new mobile apps, in an overarching vision that sounds as if it wants to find a new niche for itself as something of a competitor to Medium.

1) Why do people keep wanting to change LJ into a social networking service? Don't we have enough of those already? I have a Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr account. I don't want another site like that. The reason I keep coming back to LJ is the community-based structure, and that's something that Facebook has tried, unsuccessfully, to incorporate into its services. The reason I like LJ's comms better than the even older and more defunct forum structure is that it's easier to navigate.

2) Another new ownership firm that isn't going to give a damn about the actual users of the site. Yay. And this time, there hasn't even been an official announcement in news about the beta. We've gone from bad to worse. Thank goodness I was able to opt out of it. From what I understand, that option wasn't given to everyone.

3) I'm actually cautiously optimistic about the Android and iOS apps. The current apps are ugly, broken, and seriously dated. As long as they allow Basic accounts to actually use the apps, I'm good with this. This is something that has been needed for a while.

4) Saving the best for last: if you really want to matter again, why don't you start with actually listening to your users when we tell you to stop fixing things that aren't broken. Don't take away our customized Friends pages; they are more than just an activity feed to us, and our layouts are more than just a way to personalize our journals. We spend days, sometimes weeks, searching for or writing the codes for them so we can read the site on a page that looks exactly the way we want it. Leave our profiles alone; they are more than just a list of our friends, interests, and communities to us. They are another place for us to declare who we are and the goals of our journals. We boil ourselves and our journals down to a nutshell and put it on our profiles. If we tell you that the changes you've made are giving us migraines, listen to us; the best way to drive people away from the site is to make it inaccessible to users.


ETA: have a repost button, for those who wish to share!

Subject: Politics: Hilary Rosen: Ann Romney "has actually never worked a day in her life."





Hilary Rosen, a CNN commentator and a Huffington Post writer, made the following comment about Ann Romney, the wife of Mitt Romney, one of the Republican candidates for USA President in the 2012 election, last night on CNN's Anderson Cooper 360 program,His wife has actually never worked a day in her life.  She’s never really dealt with the kinds of economic issues that a majority of the women in this country are facing.

Hilary Rosen has taken much criticism on Twitter and blogs, and from the Republican Party and some members of the Democratic Party.  Hilary Rosen apologized in the following statement that I read here and in numerous other places.


“Let’s put the faux ‘war against stay at home moms’ to rest once and for all. As a mom I know that raising children is the hardest job there is. As a pundit, I know my words on CNN last night were poorly chosen. In response to Mitt Romney on the campaign trail referring to his wife as a better person to answer questions about women than he is, I was discussing his poor record on the plight of women’s financial struggles...

“As a partner in a firm full of women who work outside of the home as well as stay at home mothers, all with plenty of children, gender equality is not a talking point for me. It is an issue I live every day. I apologize to Ann Romney and anyone else who was offended. Let’s declare peace in this phony war and go back to focus on the substance.” 

I mostly agree with Hilary's initial statement. I would have changed the wording in the first sentence to make the statement more accurate and less controversial. I would have communicated one of the following statements. First, "His wife has actually never worked a day outside her home in her life." Second, "His wife has actually never had a job in which an employer paid her since her wedding day or maybe a bit before her wedding day".

I would not have apologized. I would have issued a clarification, as Hilary did, but without the apology.

Ann Romney has chosen to campaign for her husband. As such, she should expect people to criticize her as people criticize other public figures and/or candidates for public office. If President Obama's wife chooses to campaign for her husband, then she should also expect people to criticize her.

Happy Darwinmas 2010

Subject: Happy Darwinmas 2010



In response to Merry Christmas by a9ergirl posted on Friday, 2010/12/24 @ 21:43 PST:

Merry Christmas to all. Here is hoping that you have a fantastic day, filled with friends, family and love.

Eat, drink and be merry, if you get too merry, please don't drink and drive.

God Bless

Subject: Happy Darwinmas 2010

I wish a Happy Darwinmas to all. I hope that you have a fantastic day that is filled with whatever, not including religion, and/or whoever makes you happy.

Please eat, drink and experience happiness. If you drink too much alcohol, then please do not drive until you become sober.

Darwin and Science Purify You From the Stupidity, Irrationality and Insanity of All Religions*.

    * Atheism and Agnosticism are not religions.

I based the "Happy Darwinmas 2010" text on the "Merry Darwinmas" text that I have included below. You should notice that I corrected the grammatical errors and made the text much better. As such, "Happy Darwinmas" supersedes "Merry Darwinmas" and all of the Christmas wishes and greetings you have previously read and will read.

 

Subject: Merry Darwinmas

Merry Darwinmas to all. Here is hoping that you have a fantastic day, filled with friends, family and love.

Eat, drink and be merry, if you get too merry, please don't drink and drive.

Darwin Purify

I based the above "Merry Darwinmas" text on the "Merry Christmas" journal entry that I have put on the top of this journal entry. I read the "Merry Christmas" journal entry earlier today on OkCupid. a9ergirl posted the journal entry yesterday mid-evening. Including the subject, I only changed four words. You should have noticed that the text contains some grammatical errors. I did not add a comment to her journal entry.

Created in the year 2004, the Childfree Men's Weekend holiday honors childfree men for their choice to be childfree and to recognize that this is the best choice for these men. Childfree Men's Weekend is a celebration of all these men and allows everyone to express love, gratitude and reverence for them in the same spirit as these are expressed toward fathers on Father's Day.

I created this holiday weekend.

Childfree Pride & In Science Logic and R

 


Childfree Women's Weekend, an annual holiday weekend that I created in the year 2004, or 2003*, honors childfree women for their choice to be childfree and to recognize that this is the best choice for these women. Childfree Women's Weekend is a celebration of all these women and allows everyone to express love, gratitude and reverence for them in the same spirit as these are expressed toward mothers on Mother's Day. The seventh, or eighth*, annual Childfree Women's Weekend holiday is occurring on 2010/05/15 and 2010/05/16.

Note: * I created Childfree Woman's Day in the year 2003 and was it was held on Sunday, 2003/05/11. I replaced Childfree Woman's Day with Childfree Women's Weekend in the year 2004. If one counts Childfree Woman's Day as Childfree Women's Weekend, then the eight annual Childfree Women's Weekend is occurring in the year 2010, else the seventh annual Childfree Women's Weekend is occurring in 2010.

I have not been unable to connect to the last.fm radio service and the last.fm web site for at least one hour.  I feel somewhat upset.

Of course, as I wrote this post, I found out that I could connect to the last.fm web site.
