Google is the hardest to avoid, for instance: Google reCaptcha, etc.
@attac_hl Thanks for your comments!
@toogley @theprivacyfoundation No,Facebook is even worse.I got rid of Google first and I never missed it.I block all requests to Google servers and can still browser the web without any real disadvantages.Sites which use ReCaptcha are annoying but they don't respect my privacy so they aren't worth my time.To be clear,I never had a account directly at Facebook but I was at Whatsapp and Instagram some time ago.I got rid of it but it was awful.You lose so much social contact,even in real life,if you delete them because almost nobody will use any alternative.Sure,it was absolutely correct to delete them and I will never ever use them again but it's unluckily a fact that deleting Facebook has the most negative effect on the life.
I've personally had a good experience explaining everyone of my contacts on whatsapp the alternatives and forcing them to decide if they want to stay in contact with me.
People interested in me (parents, friends, familiy) changed to an alternative.
My parents even use jabber now. :D
