    Feds Based Entirely On Twitter And FaceBook.

    Do you feel these represent the future of e-wrestling and where itís heading where feds will no longer require websites or even message boards and everything about the experience will be done entirely on social media?

    I tried out a few of these as a member and even though it was an interesting concept, none of them really lasted long or ever really even got going to begin with. This perhaps could have been due to poor leadership and not really an indication that they couldnít be successful if the right people were running them. I should also note that like a lot of people I have been in my share of traditionally based feds that had websites (often times flashy websites) and state of the art message boards, but ultimately didnít experience long term or any success so the mediums change, but the same problems seem to present themselves.

    Twitter's had a handful.
    It wasn't really 'great'. But with 280 characters, maybe a resurgance of those are possible?
    Facebook's just meh.

    Social media is great as a promotional tool for things based elsewhere (a fed based on a website and/or forum etc and the things that transpire there) but in terms of actually operating things on the social media site itself, not so much in most cases. For one thing, you are basically playing in someone else’s yard and they can shut you down at any time for any reason. I was in an ultraviolent fed that was based on a yahoo or MSN group one time and was always concerned that it was going to be shut down by the service based on the gory and graphic nature of things (even though I was just a member and had no ownership stake nor would I have really gotten in trouble if it was shut down.) It ran it’s course basically without being shut down. Years later after I mellowed a bit and didn’t worry as much, I was asked to tone down a role play for a fed based on a Proboard the fed head was concerned about being shut down because my role play lets just say was far from family friendly and involved the graphic murder of a pornographic actress/prostitute. She wasn’t raped or tortured or anything, just shot at point blank range in the head with gory details about oozing blood and brain matter being provided. This fed head was absolutely terrified of being shut down over that one role play so I took some of the gorier details out problem solved. If these concerns can arise in these other situations where you are using free services they most certainly can arise on social media as well.

    I wouldn't even bother to look at places that are on FB or Twitter.
