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 I switched from Facebook to G+ as soon as I got a first wave invite, and switched here when G+ went away. Haven't really felt the need for Facebook.

@BalooUriza I balance this and Twitter. I wouldn't mind getting rid of Twitter, but it isn't a drain on me yet and in some ways more active.

What I'd really like to get fixed is the number of instant messaging apps that I balance!

@david Yeah, Google Voice for SMS, Telegram, plus work has Hangouts Chat and Google Meet, plus a few people won't let old Google Hangouts die, and there's a few folks still stuck in the 90s that I can only reach via IRC...
