One thing you realize when you go through the actual data on your social media not filtered through an algorithm is how small your quality interactions with people were in comparison to the noise. They make you feel like you'd be losing thousands of "friends" but none of us have the attention span to keep up with that many people and your data history will show that there's like a dozen ppl at a time you had deep connections with. Putting the noise away and letting go makes room for quality time

Hit the big red button and started deleting my Facebook account today. Compared to the data archive you get from Twitter, the stuff Facebook keeps on you is insane... everything down to which stickers and emoji you used in your entire chat history. It's unrealistic to stay off the giants completely but consider making a fresh account on them periodically and not keeping 15 years of data for them to connect to whatever new ventures and biometric stuff they get into.

So many of these metaverse/immersive platforms are going to be wastelands and digital ruins within a decade. I hope someone is already thinking about preserving them. I think ppl will look back on them fondly once they are less hyped/threatening we can walk through the ruins.

soulseek music chatrooms are pretty interesting way to discover music compared to spotify lol
