Facebook has seen better days. It began with the earth shattering revelation that international data firm Cambridge Analytica secretly harvested the data of millions of American Facebook users in an attempt to sway the political landscape ahead of the 2016 Presidential Election. But the hits keep coming.
With the estimated number of affected users growing, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg sitting in the hot seat and #DeleteFacebook trending worldwide, daydreaming about what your post-Facebook life might look like is certainly warranted.
Yes, Facebook does a great job of providing a platform for buying stuff, sharing stuff, logging in to stuff, and connecting with your loved ones. But Facebook is far from your only online option.
Today, we take a look at some of the most popular alternatives to the social media behemoth to aid your post-Facebook digital life. Letâ€™s go!
If youâ€™re looking for a job, looking to hire someone, or just want to peruse motivational, business-centric articles and keep tabs on your friends and family, LinkedIn has you covered.
LinkedIn offers many of the same services as Facebook. You can message people, connect with people, and browse a personalized newsfeed quite easily. The difference though, is that LinkedIn is built for professionals. So, if youâ€™re using LinkedIn, keep in mind that your selfies, status updates, and work history are being scrutinized by possible employers.
Keep it clean, keep it professional, and please, donâ€™t spam people with Soundcloud links and donation requests. Itâ€™s a bad look.
