Once you see all the bullshit, you can’t stop seeing the bullshit.. it can’t be unseen… or can’t roll back your thought. -Xoldie
I wanted to see what it like to not be on any big tech (Silicon Valley) platform such as email, social media and others stuff
Delete / Abandoned
- Facebook (which already deleted on July 11th not my first time… I know I know, but this time is for real)
- Instagram ( which I already abandoned but could have just “temporally disable your account” so no can claim the name… Instagram would allowed you to claim a deleted name account after long period of time. )
- SnapChat ( just delete the app that easy thing to do)
- Twitter ( I am not sure what to do with this one. All my post on mastodon crossposted to twitter. Could just unfollowed everyone and abandoned the account or delete the account? )
- YouTube (Yep going delete them! OMG NOO! I only had 8 subscribers )
- Gmail (going delete them if that possible, I may only have to keep one since I have Android phone but don’t check the email )
- WhatsApp (I already got most of my family switch to signal. I should have deleted that long time ago. )
- Twitch ( abandoned would like to use it later one day )
I am replacing…
- Facebook to Minds
- Twitter to Mastodon
- Youtube to Bitchute, PeerTube and Mastodon
- WhatsApp to Signal
- Gmail to My hosting email: hey @ Xoldie . com and hey @ deaf.rocks , May look into ProtonMail.
- Instagram to PixFed https://pixfed.com/Xoldie
- Twitch to Dlive
The whole purposes of this to get away from all the data mining and Block all the Ad & tracking using Brave and Dissenter browser
I must keep Paypal, This is how I paid for my server… Just change the email to paypal @ xoldie .com was using gmail email on PayPal.
If you have something better alternatives to what i am using right now.. please let me know
Check out Switching.social good stuff to read and learn..
Guten Tag – Xoldie
