Should we support businesses that advertise in FB or Twitter?

But ‘cancel culture’ doesn’t apply to big tech.

That really doesn’t help as it is being selective to what YOU think is beneficial and if everyone does the same all ads will remain

My HH6 and I are transitioning to a new Desktop. Our old has done an excellent job for 10 years. FB when I first came upon it I thought was the greatest thing. As time moved on I could see the darkside of it. As we transition some of our stuff from old to new . We are thinking there are some stuff that wont make the jump. FB will not be one of them. I almost dropped it a couple years ago,But contact with my Army buddys kept me from doing it. Found that although we still need to linked into current events and be active as we can. Life without politics is still possible

Nah its just being selective about listening to stuff that we personally consider to be something by all concept is junk. Freedom of speech some times has the choice to listen or not listen also

Delete Fakebook, delete Twitter, delete Amazon, stop shopping at wal Mart, stop buying Chinese products, stop using Google, stop watching youtube. Any person that supports any of these companies by having an account or purchasing from them is directly sponsoring companies that want to censor you and take away your rights. It really is that simple.

Typo fixed by moderators.

Yep, just join the Old Order Amish. Live off the land, shun electricity, and barter for goods. It’s that simple. :wink:

It is that simple. I was a kid in the eighties. We didn’t have all of the above listed, and we were just fine without it.

Edit- I have stopped using every service above, and my life is no different. People are used to being comfortable, and have gotten soft.

Exactly!
We didn’t have cordless phones, tv remotes(I was the tv remote and sometimes the antenna also). Everyone got along a lot better, atleast where I lived at the time. We played sports, had church picnics, climbed trees, went canoeing in the Ozarks.
Watching FB and Twitter come on the scene seemed to take all that away.

I think the part that tickled my funny bone was when you said “stop buying Chinese products.” I can’t remember the last time I saw something that wasn’t at least partly made in China. And if I eliminate both Walmart and Amazon, the only place I have left to shop are the two local gas stations. (There’s no Sears catalog like there was back in the 1980s.)
