I am not really very active on social media at the moment.
So apologies to anyone who has left a message or comment there for me.
Sure, I post links to stuff I have written, but I’m really not consuming anything that Facebook or Twitter or Instagram has to offer.
I really do feel it is time for us to break away from these big social media bubbles that take our online social connections with each other and bleach them into monetized algorithms and highly manipulated information feeds.
Despite my growing dissatisfaction with social media, I admit that it does have some really positive aspects. Not for profit organisations and community group pages for example. But then Facebook and Twitter and Instagram takes this goodness… and leverages a whole lot of badness off of it.
Anyway, one problem with not being active amongst the social media feeds is that people can no longer see exactly what you are doing right now.
So if you want to know what I am up to right now you can click on the blue NOW button at the top of the page. Or use this link: https://shojiwax.com/now/
I will try to update the information whenever it becomes redundant.
Oh, and if you are interested in ways you can break free from the social media oligarchy and rebuild more organic and free internet connections, here are some tips on how to get started.
And here is how you can set up your own blog to be social. Re-blogging the web.
