I do not want to use Facebook, am cutting back on usage of these platforms that do not provide privacy, make too much money off me without my knowledge and have a monopoly.

I get a lot of good information from AJ and will miss the ideas of others, which has served to expand my point of view often. Facebook is too cumbersome to use, not like just scrolling down comments.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
