Does Nudging do any good?  
Are our friends lost to other social media? Is there any way to draw them back? I have tried the "Nudge a Friend" but see no evidence that it worked. I tried the program the LJ offered six months ago where people were invited back with the lure of some member benefits. I saw no evidence that brought anyone back. (In fact, even LJ has been quiet about that program lately.)

So . . . What do we do? Any ideas?

(I do think the Nudge a friend needs some updating. I think the text isn't very effective and we need to be able to add a personal message but if it doesn't actually work then why bother.)

I wasn't around for the glory days. :) But I like LJ, and I'm continuing here, despite my friends-list getting less and less active. I've tried trawling through friends-of-friends and comments for new people whose journals look interesting; sometimes it works, sometimes it doesn't.
Two things can be disappointing - reading a comment from someone,and thinking 'oh, they sound really interesting!', only to find that their LJ is completely locked down.
Or if I do friend someone, (this happens more on DW, though) and they seem to enjoy my comments on their posts, but they don't engage in conversation or reply to my posts.
