    Let me clarify - I should have said social media in general, although I realize it would be pretty much impossible. All of these sites (Facebook is clearly the worst offender, but they are not alone) use data that is collected from everywhere to "filter" what they show you based on your previous searches, buying habits, Facebook likes, Instagram views, email content, etc.

    The issue is that if you are getting your information/news/whatever from any of these sites, you are only seeing information from "like-minded" people and/or sites. The whole idea of considering different points of view is foreign to these social media sites because of the way they work - i.e., their business model for making money is based on feeding you information, news, and products based on what you already have said you like.

    I'm not saying these sites have no value, but as someone who spends all day with college students (i.e. "teens", essentially) you would be shocked by how they perceive the world around them, and how narrow their world view is.

    OK. I get it and why you didn't do as I asked. Every account permission you have that I can view says that you can post. So I'm going to point a finger at your environment. The usual advice applies. Try clearing your cache. Try deleting any LTG cookies. Try disabling any ad or script blocking software. Try using a different browser. Watch for a new thread so we can move debugging this there.

    Heck, there's even a Facebook page for LTG....did everyone know that?

    Yes, I set it up as a way of communication when there were issues with the forum. It's not a replacement.
