    10 Solutions To Fix Facebook

    Here are 10 solutions to fix Facebook. In this episode is an extension of my previous episode, 31 Reasons To Delete Facebook. I give suggestions, alternatives and options to combat Facebook's vast ecosystem of apps and services.



    🤲 Support The Pulldown and visit https://zheanoblog.eu/premium/. Thanks.



    Once I went through these solutions I realized how hard it is to find a good alternative to some services Facebook provides. However, the end result of leaving Facebook is positive in my opinion. This list was compiled with the help of Louis-Olivier Brassard from Canada. You can check out his amazing website to learn more.

    31 Reasons To Delete Facebook

    31 Reasons To Delete Facebook

    Welcome to another episode of The Pulldown. In this episode, I mention 31 reasons to delete Facebook. I state and further explain some of the points given. In my opinion, Facebook (and other social media) can be extremely harmful to individuals and society.



    I have to mention my newsletter, Zheano Letter. I send it once a month filled with articles, Tweets, interesting ideas, exclusive wallpapers and more. Subscribe today for free and join more than 1000 readers.



    I'm currently in the process of deleting my Facebook account as well. It's a long road ahead of me, but educating myself is extremely important and positive. Hope you enjoy listening to this episode as much as I did recording it.



    😌 Want to find out how to Declutter Your Digital Life? Listen to the previous episode of The Pulldown here.



    I would recommend checking out the inspiration for this episode, a website called #ByeByeFacebook. I would also recommend reading Shoshana Zuboff's book The Age of Surveillance Capitalism: The Fight for a Human Future at the New Frontier of Power.
