How do you make new friends online these days?

I used to have several friends that I spoke to online regularly, but for one reason or another, these have largely faded away. How and where can I make new ones?

Searching only brings up results for online dating, which is not what I'm after. Basically, I just want one or two people to get to know online, and chat to at least semi-regularly. Real, ongoing, somewhat-deep online friendships.
All the ways I used to know appear defunct nowadays. Everything seems much more focused around social media, and connecting to people you already know, or dating in person. I've tried the various subreddits dedicated to meeting people, but found it a largely dispiriting experience. Any fresh ideas?
