Facebook mini-rant 

Wtf sort of mental gymnastics do people have to do to justify holding on to their Facebook accounts? Download your shit and leave. Screw the “friends” you’ve accumulated there. If they’re actually friends, there are plenty of other ways to keep in contact. If Facebook was a person doing all this crap, would you still hang out with them every day?

I browse through various feeds around the web hoping for informative insights. But honestly most of what I find is just illogical noise. Makes it feel like I wasted my time looking at all.

Anyone have opinions on wiki platforms or similar? Looking for an organized way to transcribe information that may need to be updated occasionally and is well structured for easy topical browsing.

I hate notification spam even more than junk in my inbox. First reaction was to just disable notifications. But then I just removed the app completely because why bother with any app crappy enough that it needs to annoy its users into launching it.

Wtf is going on with this UI? There are lines all over the place and so few elements are actually aligned with anything. Also, why is there a search button on a chat window?

I miss when it didn't feel like I needed to actually read privacy policies in their entirety. Lol. I've been especially wary of any free service lately.
