Big Tech (Apple, Google, Facebook, Twitter, etc.) are furious that Trump won and will not let something like that happen again. They already stacked the deck against conservatives but are now getting unhinged. I knew they did targeted advertising and such, but didn’t realize quite how evil they were (though not really surprised). But with Trump’s win they are going over the top in censoring conservative content.
I deactivated my personal Facebook account. Yea! No regrets. Facebook asked me why. I told them I didn’t trust them. I still use my Eternity Matters page, though. This article is very helpful: The Ultimate Guide To Freeing Yourself From Facebook And Keeping All of Your Data.
It is very easy to restart it if you need to. You just log back in. So even if people want to keep their accounts they can send a message by deactivating temporarily. And they may realize they don’t miss it!
I had already taken Facebook, Twitter and my blog reader off of my phone and haven’t missed them. I am more likely to go through Bible verses on my ScriptureTyper app.
I also highly recommend dumping Google Chrome and switching to the Opera browser, and using DuckDuckGo for searching instead of Google.
I highly encourage people to get on Gab — gab.ai. Pure free speech. Yeah, you’ll have to mute some cranks but I have had to do the same thing on Twitter, Facebook and Disqus. Gab doesn’t have an app because Apple and Google won’t support free speech.
And apparently Facebook tracks your calls, messages, and contacts on Android devices.
Not to be outdone, YouTube is banning gun videos – because you wouldn’t want people to know how to use them safely!
It is amusing that because of the one group that benefited Trump via Facebook – though only about 1% of what Facebook et al did for Obama and Hillary — lots of Leftists are furious with Facebook and leaving it. Sweet, sweet schadenfreude. You might want to join them.

I left Facebook years ago, and haven’t missed it.
Man the internet has become so 1984ish…
We haven’t been in contact in ages, but I just wanted to let you know Don K. Passed away this morning. So sad. 😢
Hi Marie – thanks for sharing. He was such a good and encouraging man. I don’t blog much these days but your blog is still one of the few in my reader. Keep up your great work for the kingdom!
