It's been real, it's been fun, but...
It's time to say "see ya" to Facebook. There are many reasons why it's time to let this thing go, and increasingly many more reasons to kick it in the ass on the way out. Reasons:
— They're selling the heck out of every tiny piece of my personal data. I know that's happening with Google, too, but hey, at least this source I can do something about.
— It has helped me reconnect with people I wouldn't have otherwise have been able to reconnect with, but on the other hand, it has helped me reconnect with people I wouldn't have otherwise have had to reconnect with.
— Increasingly it seems to be a right-wing news dissemination site. If you're on the right, that's probably cool with you, but I'm not. At the same time, the right complains that it's a left-wing dissemination site, which it might seem like that if most of the folks you know are leftists. In the end, however, it seems like Zuck has decided to bank on the right. One example is this one: https://mashable.com/article/facebook-right-wing-social-network/, and here's a really interesting, but long, read about the rest: https://www.huffpost.com/entry/facebook-gizmodo-gawker-trending-conservatives_n_5b6c9b16e4b0530743c83f58?
There are many more links, ask if you want them.
Meh, that's enough for me, anyway. I'll be on MeWe. Look me up if you like... or don't. Up to you.
