The alternative to Facebook and mobile apps is not a pure, ideal world where everything is free and your privacy is always assured. I’m aware that the free platform I’m using to write this blog is owned by an enormous information corporation whose privacy practices are not always stellar. But it’s not my only option. There are alternative applications that serve the exact same purpose, and will produce the same results. This blog is free for anyone, anywhere, on any device. You don’t have to buy a special device, or join Blogger, or register your personal data to access it.
