Facebook and Instagram-The Transparent Citizen

Washington Post – By Geoffrey Fowler

Are you concerned with your, our privacy, the big scale of collecting our data and following, listening and profiling us down to each second in our lives?

Is anyone of our readers aware of an alternative to Facebook being in development ?

We have heard of MeWe which is up and running successfully, but it is not clear to us yet if they could be potentially a valid alternative.

Which browsers are you using while surfing the internet?

We are trying to use mainly the Epic Browser which claims to block tracking – well, as well as possible we guess and we do use Firefox Mozilla as well occasionally.

Not that it is all fool proof, but one must try.

Please let us know your thoughts and where you are standing in this ‘David vs. Goliath‘ game.

Please post comments or email us your thoughts and ideas to team@7minutesonline.com

THANK YOU – 7minutesonline
