Delighted to see that is becoming a thing once again

@Gargron I wish I could but so many of my friends only use facebook to talk

@ninchuka I have the same problem I invited most of my friends to join fediverse, but no one wanted to join 😕 so I will wait for few weeks and just delete FaceBook and Whatsapp.

@Gargron Honestly I've yet to find a good viable alternative to facebook in all reality. Even Mastodon doesn't peek my interest as a viable option. This community is so far 'left' field that it's overwhelmingly negative, abusive, & trolling, the same mentality the left has held for yrs. Then you have gab, which is the polar opposite, just horrid. Honestly, unless there is an absolutely secure, private mastodon instance that keeps *zero* logs and protects my privacy, then it isn't a replacement.

@Gargron Finally, I would just like an instance where it's politics free. FFS I'm so sick and damn tired of seeing politics left and right. I know I stand on the right hand side of the fence, but I've been hardcore unfollowing and blocking everyone who makes any political post, period, just because of how abusively negative it is. Thankfully I don't follow many political folks on mastodon.social, but my past experience with the userbase here has been increasingly hostile to *anyone* on the right

@JoshParker @gargron this is why I put all openly political (and religious!) stuff behind a warning label and encourage others to do the same.

Not everyone wants to engage with it, and that’s fine. I get it, it’s stressful and divisive. It’s why I like the warnings. It gives people that choice to engage or not, while allowing individuals their personal platform to talk.

@Gargron

also facing major negativity as banks /payment clearing corporations headed for the fire exits

@Gargron
I'm not fully on board with the message it's sending, yes facebook is terrible and you should quit it, but it only sucks because of its buisness model.

You shouldn't just #deletefacbook ,but delete corporate apps entirely. Facebook is just a symptom.

@Gargron I have really struggled with deleting mine. Lots of friends hit me with "but we'll miss you!" or "It doesn't matter if you delete your account. You're not hurting them."

To hell with it. It's time. I'm tired of compromising my principles for the sake of convenience.
