Facebook considered harmful – for me

road-nature-lines-country.jpgI’ve been thinking lately (again) about deleting my Facebook account. I’ve thought a lot about this in the past and have held back because, well, there’s the trans thing and I can get support there. But the support I was getting has dwindled somewhat over the last year or so as many of the groups I followed have disintegrated into somewhat of a chaotic state. And I’m getting worried about the use of my personal data by Facebook. See How Facebook’s tentacles reach further than you think for more information on this sort of thing.

Plus there is the whole Cambridge Analytica thingy and the fallout from that.

Im being held back because I have a lot of good friends on Facebook and also need to connect with my family.

So the question is, to delete or not delete?
