Why do you want internet friends anyway. They're all horrible people.

I suggest going on an imageboard, any you want, and getting into a long conversation about a topic you like with someone. Once the conversation looks like it's about to end, tell the person you enjoyed it and would like to talk to them more, and leave a mean to contact you. Most of the time, this works. I've met many long-term friends that way. Alternatively, you can become a really active tripfriend and wait until someone asks you for contact info; I've had that happen to me as well.

Not him, but does that even still work in 2019? The internet has changed, and while 4chan was already terrible a few years ago it's become far, far worse since then. Other imageboards are, and always have been, too inactive for conversations like that.

Admittedly, I haven't tried this year because I already have too many friends, but I can guarantee it would work. I've been on 4chan since 2007 and I can tell you that, apart from an influx due to the election, it hasn't changed that much since 2015. There's a bigger amount of normalfags, but most of the cool people who were there back then are still there today. You just need to find someone that you'll get along with. Sometimes you might add people and end up having to delete them for whatever reason, but just don't give up and eventually you'll find one.

Every Internet friend I come across only lasts for as much as a few days or weeks when it comes to sustained conversation

I know love comes from unexpected corners at unexpected times but it's going to be a bit shite this holiday season
>> No.54179  
internet friends are fleeting and you can never be sure that they're not posting screenshots of your conversations in some discord circlejerk wehre everyone laughs at you. Be your ofwn friend, Like me.
>> No.54270  
It's really hard to make any real internet friends. If you do end up getting a friend, it is really hard to keep your friend without them becoming irritated or bored of you. They will start ghosting you at some point in the future.

i find irc and other chatroom-type software to be good for actually maintaining conversations with people. nobody wants to go out of their way to message someone they've only talked to once, but if you have a persistent chatroom where people can randomly pop in or out, post stuff they find interesting, etc., it's a lot easier to get involved with it. most of my online friends are people i've known on irc for over a decade by now.
>> No.54274

Unfortunately, IRC is dead nowadays. Everything is Discord now, and Discord lacks the 'people can randomly pop in or out' aspect (most servers have a highly visible notification when somebody joins the server and once there you remain on there until you consciously choose to leave; re-joining later triggers that highly visible message again) while doubling down on the circlejerk aspect IRC also frequently has.

why did everyone go to discord though?
>> No.54329  
>>54327
It's easier for people not used to computers beyond using Facebook and Steam. You download the client, you click the link and done. Typing '/server <hostname>' and '/join <channel>' is far too complicated for modern internet users.

You seem to be conveniently omitting the fact that Discord is proprietary and centralized; whereas, irc is federated and can be implemented by anyone.

Don't make IRC sound like it's some sort of elitist client for hax0rz because it's not and using IRC doesn't make you smarter. It's nothing more than a very utilitarian tool.

That's bog standard for IRC as well, friendo.

>>54327
It has server side message history. IRC lacking that was always its key weakness; you had to be online to get messages and you couldn't read the logs of any channel you're in unless you had a bot in there logging it or w/e. That's the """"innovation"""" that Slack made and Discord copied. Plus custom anime emoticons.

On IRC, joining a server is 100% silent. Only joining a channel shows a notification, and as those notifications are also repeated frequently for people already in the server joining and leaving or getting disconnected, pretty much all clients de-emphasize the join messages and people rarely notice someone new joined until after they've already been there for a while. In contrast, basically every Discord server has a separate welcome channel where you can very specifically monitor new arrivals, and many even have a bot that calls you out for joining specifically so people can get a notification of joins (which otherwise don't trigger a notification).

>you had to be online to get messages
For those who can't leave an IRC client open there are bouncers. It was possible, it just wasn't as user-friendly as Discord.

>and you couldn't read the logs of any channel you're in
Basically every client supports logging chat to a text file (something Discord to this day does not support) and many clients can display message history. Search was also a whole lot better (using whatever search algorithm you wanted), whereas on Discord you can search for the string 'stun' and it will ignore every single message containing 'hitstun' because apparently that doesn't contain 'stun'.

>Plus custom anime emoticons.
I must admit that the emoji and the avatars (latter was supported by some clients but never properly standardized) are advantages Discord has over IRC. But I would say it wasn't worth the trade-off, and it wasn't the reason Discord got popular. Discord became successful by providing user-friendliness at the expense of functionality.

Radio bots, music, graphic emojis, games etc. All of it is unnecessary bloat. Maybe the avatars can get a pass. Not to mention text-based chat games and emoticons have been around for decades now.

You can easily setup a server to not do the join notifications though
