All That You Survey
Transcript Panel 1.
Cass aims.
Cass: They're all like that! I’m banned on Bluebook, YouTV, Mumblr, and Chatter is shadowbanning me! Patronizer tracks what you type when you post something, which creeps me out. That leaves me with nothing but my Onlyfa-,

Panel 2.
Cass looses.
Cass stops herself, realizing she's talking to kids.
Cass: I mean with nothing!

Panel 3.
The kids look at each other. Cass goes to retrieve her arrow
Cass: Mumblemumbledon'trunyourmouthcassmumblemutter

Panel 4.
Jamie: …Anyway. Why do you bother with this? If Picstagram doesn't want your naked pictures, why post them?

Panel 5.
Overview of the campsite with the beach in the distance. Cass waves around with her arrow still in her hand. In the background, groups of people are enjoying themselves. In the foreground, birds and bunnies.
Cass: Look around you! We have all this! Wouldn't you want to share it? What do other Picsfluencers even have on this?

It's true! Patreon will flag certain words you type as you type them and tell you these words may cause an inspection. This happens before you post, so presumably, they're sending your typing to their servers in real-time. This is why I'm focussing on DeviantArt more for funding. (So if you have a DeviantArt account, you can now unlock my Supporter Gallery for a one-time payment of $10 and get broadly the same benefits as members of my Patreon. Of course, you can always support the comic here in non-material ways by subscribing, commenting or giving the comic a rating).
"Picsfluencers" is a silly word, but so is "Influencers" as it is used today. Only a handful of people who have been called "Influencers" actually influence anyone.
Eh, I'm still bad at doing those wide overview panels. But I won't get better if I don't keep trying.

I love the mumblr name - well done, great cartoon.
ReinderDijkhuis edit delete reply
Thanks! It was a bit of a last minute change.
The name of the service that Cass interrupts is also altered, but I don't think it'd be appropriate to spell it out in full.

I thought you were joking when you said you were changing it from "Bumblr"...

Another great comic. European comic art has such a warm and expressive quality to it.

As misanthropic semi-recluse I look upon most social media with fear and loathing. One gives away ones' privacy away, and a random comment you make could land you in a world of trouble.

Commenting on comics I following and in webcomic host forums is the closest I come to using social media.

Cass could create her own naturist website. This would probably reach more interest people than a social media account can.

Would that that were true. The reach of social media dwarfs that of traditional websites and that is how social media have managed to suck oxygen away from them and continue to do so. The Greyfriar's Isle Twitter account has ten times as many followers as the comic has subscribers, for example.
I no longer list any of them on my websites, at least the ones that I still update. What I want is for people to come from social media to my webcomics, not the other way around. But it's an uphill battle.

I guess I am falling behind the times.

But I still have no desire to have social media accounts.

Fantastic page! And she's right, that is a gorgeous area!
