@lew, I am really liking this new alternative to FB, thanks for introducing it to me, I love it. I may start planning an FB phase out and jump in MeWe if the honeymoon lasts as I hope it does.

For Facebook users, check this out at https://mewe.com/

For anti facebook users, they boast "No ads" no "Spyware" no "BS".

I did! I just forgot to post back here, it's as I suspected, my apps are tracked all over the place.

I am in a unique position here though, I need the tracking and I need social media to track my topics and posts, wherever they are on social media. In my use case, tracking is a good thing, it's how I get the word out about our community here. So the tracking and privacy doesn't really bother me.

The reason why I am phasing out FB, is for other reasons not to go into here, it'll open up a whole big can of political worms.

 

That being said, I am a big supporter of Mark Zuckerberg, he has a business, he's getting rich, and it's up to the users to use his platform with caution. We are all responsible for our own actions, you cannot go on Facebook and expect any amount of privacy, your data will be tracked, your data will be sold. I know that, and I used it.

I did. I'm tracked all over the place, but I don't care.

 

If I need to browse the Internet clandestinely, I have the Tor browser installed on all my computers.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!

Objective

Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.

Volunteer

Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.

Education

Logging

One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
