Established in 2002, Demopolis Live is a website dedicated to information and opinions in and around West Alabama. Known in the past for our message-boards, DLive now focuses on Blogs and social media content. We are a non-profit, for fun and amusement website.
The community left our once 20,000 per day page view site for facebook. With the advent of sites like facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc., user-generated content sites like DLive’s forums just can’t survive anymore. Everyone likes the freedom of posting un-moderated, to the audience of their choosing, with the control to delete any replies they choose. We don’t blame them. It’s sad, however, that there is no “neutral ground” anymore for people to discuss things that matter. With all the social media out there, the result is the same segregation of groups into like-minded hives. Until the community (and world) is ready to mingle again, we’ll keep the spot clean, mowed, and watered.
