Now that the discourse around #Facebook begins to implicitly accept that it's declining or collapsing, it's become a sure thing. To help accelerate the decline, remind your friends and family of the services that Facebook owns that they should avoid along with the social network: #Instagram, #Whatsapp.
Remind them that #Google are just a more powerful Facebook.
Before they migrate to a new silo, and a new master.. let them know something new is growing over here on the Fediverse.
@whonose123 Yeah, it just made Landfall as a Category 3 Severe Tropical Cyclone on the Australian Tropical Cyclone Scale which is equivelent to Category 1 on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind Scale, Typhoon on the JMA Scale, Severe Cyclonic Storm on the Indian Scale, or Intense Tropical Cyclone on the Meteo France Scale for comparison of various Tropical Cyclone Scales.
This is the first named storm of the 2018-19 Australian Region Tropical Cyclone Season that was named in the region (Tropical Cyclone Bouchra was in the Australian Region but reached naming intensity within Meteo France La Reunion's Area of Responsibility before entering tde Australian Tropical Cyclone Basin)

Google lost control of several million of its IP addresses for more than an hour on Monday, with traffic misdirected to China Telecom

I have been wondering: how quickly could a site like Facebook die? I think it could happen very quickly, if there were an alternative platform. Once the network effect shifts from Facebook to something else, it's basically Myspace city. The challenge is establishing that network effect somewhere else.
@HackerRadioShow BOO!!! Missed the show for the last month! - Good to see you on Mastodon, but I think the way you introduced it on the show would confuse some people.
Maybe explain how they can "sign up" and then follow you?
Whonose!! somewhere in Europe most of the time...
