My strategy for breaking my birdsite addiction:
- Delete apps
- 2FA to slow down provide 20¢/text disincentive to login.
- Sign out when not using
- Treat it as broadcast only
Still not sure if Masto is the replacement. But. Here we are.
I hear you. And good article. The addiction aspect is real for many, sadly.
I was on the road to shaking that monkey early in 2016. Like a lot of people, that election did me in for socmed.
Now in process of killing all the centralized accounts. Twitter and LinkedIn are last to go. The latter is the only one my wife looks at me funny about.
I'm just happy. It feels liberating to be free of the exploitation and desire to want to check the irrelevant noise.
