I deleted Facebook ages ago, and have just done the same with Twitter after several years of being shadow banned, Twitter throttled, and muted by many no doubt. I got rid of my Google account too, which in turn gets rid of Pinterest, Instagram and possibly some other accounts that are now owned by monolithic companies such as Google, Amazon, Apple and Facebook.
Youtube was amazing when it first arrived but that was profoundly short lived. Now it is nothing more than a bad TV channel full of pop music, adverts and propaganda. The first 4 or 5 years were the glory days: No advertising and no corporate presence – just people making videos. It was phenomenal, which is why, in my opinion, it was taken over by Google and the ‘powers that shouldn’t be’. There are still good channels on Youtube and if it wasn’t for Google those channels would be on the home page, but instead the homepage is solely populated by TV, movie and pop performers. Twitter is nothing but white noise signifying naught. Pinterest and Instagram were always for morons. And as for Tumblr… well, what can one say? Like feminism it’s cancer.
I simply could not maintain self respect while still having accounts with these evil scumbag sites, and the vile specimens of humanity that own and run them.
I would say it’s been fun, but it hasn’t been for a very long time.
