fell off bc noone can keep up with @ncte, thanksgiving, turnaround....Too much $$, hard on families, plus miss last month of classes. Most of us real professors we don't work at R1 where you have grad assistants teach your 1 or 2 classes of privileged kids

You can follow along how I quit and unquit facebook here: https://indieweb.org/silo-quits @actualham is correct the hasn't figured out the hyper local. The day I was suggesting had a moral obligation not to use facebook I rejoined to find my son's dog (turns out phone number on collar would have been fine) but I miss the local swap and sell groups, the local news.

I need to sell my car. facebook is so fast

I do think we can fix this. In fact I believe more in a local web than a decentralized one. i want to empower local paers and local libraries through open pedagogy to return these key networks back to the people.

Given revelations that @facebook uses anti-semitic memes about George Soros and willingly tried or did sell user data while lying to user does @scsu and other institutions have a responsibility to quit @facebook and @instagram?
