Conversation on Snapzu?

Using other social media, snapzu seems notably lacking in the social department. Maybe I am out of the loop and haven't found the place where people discuss? Or is Snapzu simply more akin to pintrest or stumbleupon than reddit or facebook, more a place to post links than to talk? Of course people make the odd comment, but I haven't seen much in the way of conversation here.

    I've only been here a couple days, but I'm working on it! I noticed the same thing as you.

    I think it was Ghandi that said 'Be the change you want to see' so I started making comments on other people's snaps, hoping to start a discussion.

    Maybe you could start /t/forum and treat that tribe as a forum similar to /t/lounge, but for different types of discussions.

      Yeah, if you really think about it this place is like a clean slate, ready to be whatever community we make it. So far its headed in the right direction and with enough people this place can really be something great. I really like the /t/forum idea, maybe it can be a general location for in-depth discussions about whatever topics we think would be best to chat about, the /t/lounge tribe although a more central location has more to do with welcoming new members and giving them help on how to get started.

    An additional question: in the achievements section, what does "The Contributor - Submitted 0/10 items to social modules" mean? How do I contribute to social modules?

    Is that perhaps the answer to my initial question?

    On the contrary, you seem like you're already a natural here! You're not wrong in assuming there isn't much "discussion" going on, the site is still quite small when compared to reddit or pinterest so it might need a few more members before larger more involved discussions can take place. I do think that a lot will happen in the next release when tribes and text posts (snapzu's discussion platform) get a much deserved upgrade from both the feature side and the making it more visible side. Would be good for example to appoint mods to my tribes!

      Well I just hope it never gets as big as reddit.

        I doubt there is anything to worry about, TBH. The culture promoted here is much different than what it was on reddit when it was just starting out so I think as this place grows the many pitfalls we see in today's reddit will not be a reality here. Feel free to correct me if you think I'm wrong :)

          People here seem more polite, and much older and experienced than the average redditor. People on reddit overwhelmingly seem to be awkwardly introverted students with a severe case of ethnocentrism.

    Just to add my two cents worth,(actual worth of approx ninety dollars+) the site consists of mostly innocuous submittals, which seems to suit the contributors. The provocative, not so much, if any.

              "not so much if any" yourself, Cobby attempts, JC submits a few, others stumble upon one now and then. Of course what I consider provocative, may well disinterest others.

              As much as I oppose Obama on every other issue, immigration is one of those singular issues where he seems slightly closer to the right direction than his opposition.

              The USA was founded by aggressive "illegal" immigrants, and immigrants today commit fewer crimes on average than U.S. citizens. There are many laws needing changed so that we don't become a bankrupt nanny state, but immigrants are part of Americas heritage, not aliens needing excluding.

              ...I just wish they had defunded the DHS, which looks less likely to occur after that ruling.

              There can be no policy other than come and go as you please without a secure border, otherwise all efforts are for naught.

              I don't believe in "secure borders." Even North Korea and Israel can't pull that off. Reminds me of the drug train.

              Odd that you would cite Israel. The go to place internationally for border security. North Korea and China are ramping up their border security. North Korea to keep them in, China to keep them out. In neither case are crossers welcomed, quite the contrary.

              Somehow they make it tho, and so do supplies. Trade marches on.

              They? If our number of illegal border crossings totaled N Korea's and Israel's together, there would be little to no issue. Would not even be necessary to adopt their penalties, LOL. You are aware of course, mass illegal immigration to N. Korea is not a problem. Black marketeering would be a totally different issue/subject

              Maybe we should adopt/make reciprocal Mexico's enlightened immigration policies? As to flow of goods and services, one can limit it, your cited Israel has done a remarkable job on all fronts you have mentioned.

              Of course, I doubt anyone can guarantee 100% security, but to say security is a useless exercise for that reason is nonsense.

              It isn't correlations they are talking about, it is predictive power. Restricted trade leads to war, while vigorous trade prevents it.

              All reliant on their correlations of past history. Hell, one could show causation(s) from anything if so inclined. Of course integrated trade would be a factor, and less of incentive, that's a no-brainer. But to state it's a barrier is misleading. Is/was trade relevant to ISIS, was it to Hitler, Castro, Stalin, Mao, Ho Chi Minh, et al. In some cases trade may have became a later issue , but not the reason(s) for the initial aggression(s). Ownership, plain and simple would most obvious be the greater incentive, not trade imbalance.

              Yes, trade was extremely important to those people, and economic issues are what most people attribute the rise of Nazism and the fall of Communism to.
