After leaving Researchgate and Linkedin earlier – never used Instagram and Strava – I am thinking now how to delete also the Facebook account without loosing all my “friends”.
There seems to be a nice solution as I can add any Facebook account to my RSS feed in Miniflux using RSS bridge. This is dead easy, just enter the username and add the resulting feed to the reader.
There is only one downside: All Facebook accounts (and groups!) need to make their content public available and not just to Facebook and Cambridge Analytica marketing departments.
The fake privacy as well as the assumed exclusivity of Facebook contacts is a built-in design cheat right from the beginning of the social media.
