Donít Wait for Congress or Zuckerberg To Set You Free From Facebook
Canada Free Press ^ | 04/12/18 | Judi McLeod

Posted on 04/12/2018 12:30:07 PM PDT by Sean_Anthony

Someday a non-political frog, one who looks like President Donald Trump and who is totally unrelated to government, will set all Facebook frogs free.

Millennial pipsqueak Mark Zuckerberg may have done us all an unintended favor at Tuesday’s and Wednesday’s Congress performance.

Anyone who watched it knows exactly where the masses stand in this perilous moment in time: millions of frogs in social media’s boiling cauldron of water getting uncomfortably hot, but not quite yet knowing it’s time to jump out.

"...Gab, Freedom Vine, or MeWe..."


I am on Gab and it seems pretty good.
I am unfamiliar with the other two websites.

Isn’t it too late? That which is captured never goes away, right? Deleted is quite the myth, I hear.

Not to worry—they delete your info after they sell it to twelve governments, five organized crime cartels, and seven international corporations. :-(

I got an account on MeWe yesterday. I’m trying to get some conservative groups sites on Facebook to migrate. It’s like a bare bones Facebook, but it’s much faster.

I'm with Rush on this one.

Yesterday on his radio program, he said something to the effect that all of these millions of people on Facebook and other social media networks, haven't "lost" any of their private data to the outside world because of Zuckerberg and others.

He said these people have voluntarily regurgitated up their private lives in order to validate themselves somehow. I think he actually used the verb "vomit" up their private lives willingly for the world to see.

Many use it to communicate with family and friends but you can do that in private, encrypted emails instead. Some people brag about their hundreds of online "friends" who they have never met and never will.

I don't do social media except for this FR site and I think I made the right decision years ago to not share my personal life and secrets with people on the internet I don't even know.

I just signed up for Gab recently. It works about the same as Twitter. Some of the people I follow on Twitter get banned, and then they move to Gab and I continue following them there. Many of these people are Europeans who got banned for speaking out about the Islamic crime waves there.

I also tried to sign up for Minds.com, but all I see there is garbage that looks like some sort of blockchain system crashing. (Enough with the damn fads!)

If Rush actually knew anything about high-tech, he would not only be coming down on Zuck and Google like a ton of bricks, but would have been doing so continuously for the last several years.

Yeah, Rush needs a serious tech briefing—his comments on the subject are cringe-worthy.
