    Repost: The year social networks were no longer social

I have never had a Facebook or a Twitter account for exactly that reason - I know that they are there because they seek my time and attention.

I have instead turned to the Fediverse and have greatly enjoyed it there. Social contacts, nothing more - no ads, no spam, no attention stealers, no people that I do not want to see on my timeline.

    knowing what happened in polish part of the internet with portals, instant messengers, im not surprised what happens now to the "biggest" ones. tho, we can argue that the reason is different but outcome is same - peope are flying away looking for better alternatives and they will do the same in the future when current alternatives will become annoying.

    @cylonapplepie Hey, I'm Polish. Gadu-Gadu and used to be popular, and both are now decimated by the omnipresent Facebook.
