@novaburst Hmm.. I need something with good examples and images since people are often to lazy to read
@stux I'd read some pretty intense summaries of why to do it. Definitely not a "nice" vibe to them, though. There's a lot of Jaron Lanier interview videos where he synopsizes it pretty well (that's what finally did it for me) though that's more time investment than reading a quick page, and it's not often he specifies commercial social media vs. ad-free/funded social media, so the nuances there may be lost on some.
There are a lot of articles about how they do harm; not nearly enough about alternatives.
Maybe a website could be dedicated to compiling them?
I like sharing them on the same sites they take to task; anti-Zuckerberg articles on FB, anti-Dorsey articles on Twitter.
Then blocking their ads while I use their platforms and never explaining why... adds that flavor of mischief.
"Keep the data set incomplete; foil the algorithm!" is my motto.
