Re: GNU/Debian Linux vs. facebook, Twitter and other proprietary social media



I haven't read this entire thread, so I'm jumping into the middle.

John Hasler gave you excellent advice when he suggested creating your own web 
site (or a web site on some other social media type network) that has less 
aggressive privacy policies.

Then in response to your concern:

On facebook, create an account just for the business (separate from a personal 
account that you might also have).  On that business account, don't put any 
information that you consider proprietary just advertise (in the best way you 
can) the other site where they can find the information that you are 
(apparently) worried about losing control of.
