I no longer use "private" social networks. I use public networks to find people then move private sharing to e2e encrypted chat like Signal. That way there is a clear demarcation between my public and private life. I'm done working for free to enable companies to profit off my private data.
Yeah, it has. A search of "e2e encrypted social network" results in a graveyard of many failed attempts
For me, everytime I think about how it would be implemented, I always end up thinking that e2e group chats are good enough for sharing my life with friends. Not to mention chat is a much more intentional way to communicate as opposed to just shouting status updates into the void.
@sabogato @thegibson I completely agree. A big part of why I deleted FB was that reason, I only want intentional relationships, not passive ones based on what I happen to see. And it creates weird situations where you don't know what people know about you or what you don't. I discovered a little after I deleted FB that 6 months after the fact one of my best long distance friends didnt know I had become religious
