Not restarting my Facebook presence

Yesterday I updated my profile pages on Facebook, Google+, Instagram, LinkedIn, Twitter, and XING with information from my Ello profile. I found lots of friend requests from people I don't know, or people too afraid to use their real identity. You play with whatever you like to play with. I am keeping three alive, for now:

  1. Twitter is my source of news. I am keeping only a few dozen tweets around. All spammers get blocked. As soon as Twitter forces their own "timeline" on me, I am gone.
  2. Ello is my safe place. No b/s, and a week from now, I will have more followers there than on Twitter.
  3. I am still posting to Instagram. But those days are numbered. It will get as polluted as Facebook. After all, it is a Facebook franchise. Case in point: I can no longer attach places to photos without creating them on Facebook, "algorithmic timeline" with "sponsored posts" and "best photos" will follow.

All of those are linked from the sidebar to your right.

Man, you're in good shape for a 111-year old! ;)

Believe it or not, but I do get birthday greetings on new year.

Ceci n'est pas un blog

I explain difficult concepts in simple ways. For free, and for money. Clue procurement and bullshit detection.
