Breaking Up with Facebook

In the spring of 2019, Elizabeth Warren promised to break up mega-tech companies such as Facebook if she’s elected president.

Facebook, of course, owns not only the world’s major social network, but also Instagram and WhatsApp. Exiting all 3 services is a challenge if you want to stay in touch with friends and family. But we should start somewhere.

I have a small Facebook footprint with only my name, no photos or other info. Not even a profile picture. I stay connected because I can only contact some people through Facebook. Instagram is extremely hard to avoid for a photographer. But I keep only about 20 photos on my Instagram timeline. The rest I archive on my photography website. I do not use WhatsApp, but instead use Signal.
