I have been on various social media platforms but I will say I greatly enjoy RallyPoint. Not only is it a great military networking site but it is not any of the others. I will say that I am seeing a trend of random questions here. I honestly can't tell if I am on Facebook or some other social media site anymore.

What do you think really sets RallyPoint apart from your other social media accounts. Do you see trends overlapping from one to another? I really enjoy the intellectually stimulation and professional development here. Some stuff I pass over some others. Some I think are nothing more than a pat on the back. Some topics are so far off base I am lost as to why they are here. I wish I could zip them to Facebook or Instagram. I have those already.

I have seen some others say the same thing. Maybe I am just taking this all too serious. But I believe in what RallyPoint is doing. I don’t want it to be a military Facebook. I just think we as a whole should really look to contribute to the community rather than just participate. There is a difference. I promise is there is a Gym Selfie discussion I will do everything in my power to kill it.

Am I alone in seeing this? Do you think RallyPoint is heading in the right direction? Or am I just to serious?

On desktop, if you click on the top left RallyPoint logo, it will take you to a navigation page. You can then click on "Military Discussions" to avoid the "General Interest" category. You can also access it directly from the link below. Give it a try to just focus on those discussions, and then let us know if you enjoy that better perhaps?

I stick to RallyPoint out of fear. One day the other online media sites might band together.....

Yes Sir you are correct. I just personally choose not to do it anymore. But I can see your perspective and it makes perfect logical sense to me. If I ever decide to do it again my friends list needs a good clean out. I just get so annoyed by all the duck face pictures and bathroom selfies. But to each their own I suppose.

We get swamped on RallyPoint with civilians from ex-commie countries doing that stupid duckie face thing as well. Drives me nuts.

I didn't choose one over the other. I use many forms of social media: Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest, and of course, RallyPoint. I get something different from each one.
