Still On facebook?

If so, you may want to read the June 2011 issue of Consumer Reports. You may be looking for an alternative social site after reading the article about facebook. “…you share the details of your life on Facebook, assuming that you and other users are its main customers and that it’s accountable to you. But Bruce Schneier, cheif technology officer at security firm BT Global Service, says you’re not Facebook’s customer. ‘You are Facebook’s product that they sell to their customers,’ he says, refering to the network’s advertisers.” You have to ask yourself who is using whom? Stand up, be brave and seek out a better alternative. Invite your friends to follow you. True privacy is lost on the Internet but you can do a better job of protecting your personal information than on facebook. Does billionaire Mr. Mark really need you to help line his already bulging pockets? Check out other social sites. You may find a less offensive organization that may fill your needs. Twitter may be all you need. Or Blogger? Tumblr? WordPress? Posterous? You may also want to avoid friendfeed which is owned by facebook. Remember, The Beatles were warning us of the Blue Meanies so long ago. I left facebook and am glad I did.

Feel good after experiencing my first #silentsunday.

No socialization on the Internet on Sundays. No #Twitter, #Posterous or #Tumblr. Rather relaxing. And saved a little electricity by not pushing electrons all over the earth. A little reading and drawing.

Alternatives are needed.

Posterous – The place to post everything. Just email us. Dead simple blog by email.

I am liking posterous.
