Hello lobsters. I’ve been working for the past couple weeks on phasing out my use of proprietary social media; namely Snapchat, Instagram, and Discord. I’ve eliminated two of these three, and am working on the latter.
I often hear people complain of privacy concerns regarding Facebook and the like. It seems to be common knowledge that these platforms are harmful, but whenever I suggest an alternative I am quickly shot down with various excuses.
Why is open source and privacy respecting software rejected by the mainstream?
