Are there other tool I can use to avoid using facebook? I did find out about
and someone else mentioned about Diaspora. It's considered decentralized
social networking. But can I use some other software to let people know about
specials, events, etc., without using things like facebook.
There's gotta be some kinda Android or Apple app that lets foodies stay
