I do halfly agree with this. Let’s not forget that they EVOLVED to such state but weren’t born with disrespect to users in their mind. Let’s take a Facebook as an example: it was born to unite classmates together and keep in touch with them BUT after it started scaling worldwide, it’s team saw an opportunity for largest profits in the history.

Zuck: I have over 4,000 emails, pictures, addresses, SNS

[Redacted Friend’s Name]: What? How’d you manage that one?

Zuck: People just submitted it.

Zuck: I don’t know why.

Zuck: They “trust me”

Zuck: Dumb fucks.

I admire your optimism, but Facebook was rotten from the start. And in my experiences many more corporations than we think either also are from the start, or swiftly become so because of ‘profit’ or ‘investor pressure’.

Welcome to the community of so-called Digital Minimalists! We’re community of people who seek for silence in such a noisy world and balance between real and digital worlds. Rules of this community include:

  1. Be honest with yourself and others. Seriously, if you’re not honest with yourself and pretend to be someone else, you’re not going anywhere. The first step to progression is acceptance, isn’t it?
  2. Be polite to others and respects each others opinions. No matter what your thoughts about privacy, Big Tech, politics, nature and etc are, let’s keep all discussions family-friendly and not overwhelm ourselves.
  3. Keep it theme-oriented. This community is not made to discuss politics, privacy-issues and climate change. It’s about balance and harmony. We could discuss those topics if they are related to Digital Minimalism, but not if they’re purely self-oriented. Thank you :)
