This is an experimental alternate to Facebook and Instagram.  In the past I have used Facebook mostly to keep up with the goings on of friends and family, and also as a sort of archive for photos, articles and things that interest me.  While the Facebook platform is very well done, I have never been comfortable with the privacy issues or some of the ways people interact.  I don’t plan on leaving Facebook, at least not immediately, but I will be posting most of my content to my ‘alt-Facebook’ blog for now.
