However, the reasoning behind desocial does also apply to mastdon, doesn't it?
Cool! I don't have any lessons to give, simply sharing my own experience. I've been out of the facebook loop for many years and I know for a fact I'm missing out on many of my friends conversations, for instance. But it's a price I'm willing to pay, even if they're not.
I believe true friends will always find ways to keep each other in the loop - as we did before social media and all that.
@waglo Same here. Left facebook while ago... They all say "what happened ? we dont see you on the web anymore" web=FB/Instagram 🤦♂️
True friends we call each other and talk a lot over signal ... not the best option but better than whatsapp & co
@hyde I never used signal. But email, voice (ya ya ya) phone... old school stuff. Heck, we've had the same email/phone for ages anyway - it's not like it's hard to do.
@waglo Email with friends ? Delta could be an option for you maybe :)
Actually nobody write email between us I think ... but I may be wrong but never got on a thread with all of them 😄
@hyde Not looking for options ;-)
I've got my eyes set on a broad forest to live out in peace.
It's just too late for so-called friends. I'm old and tired now.
@hyde I don't think technology will solve any of this, by any measure.
@waglo That's true ... I don't really see a bright future for next generations 😔
@hyde i want to, but i cant :c
@igordrozniak Yes you can ... just hit a couple of buttons and you should be fine :)
@hyde theoretically yes,
practically... well... no
i mean, yeah - but i need those
@hyde basically no, i REALLY want to, but it's not that easy.
@hyde also I use Matrix/XMPP.
Also, I can't have CyanogenMod (i know there's no word bout it, but I cant :/)
