Since #DeleteFacebook is trending again, here's another reminder that they own Messenger, Instagram, and WhatsApp too, plus plenty of other stuff.
Also I'm crossposting to Twitter, which is just as bad in some of the same ways.
@david what are the better alternatives? Ive been wanting to ditch Facebook for awhile, but it seems like they have a monopoly on social media.
@ReynardMcLain How's Mastodon working for you? I understand that it serves different purposes than Facebook, but I am wondering if it could serve as a valid replacement overall. It certainly has for me, but I may have different needs.
@david honestly its been mostly a place to share random thoughts and a friend of mine turned me on to using it. I like it alot so far, trying to get the wife to use it and otjer friends as well. This could really replace more of my social media use if it had more applications.
@ReynardMcLain What do you mean applications? Do you mean ways to access it, like phone/desktop apps, or do you mean things that it can be useful for? I'm curious what else you're looking for.
