Well, I just finished up closing out the remaining account that I had on Tumblr. I hadn’t touched it for a while. The property just got sold again and is being treated like nuclear waste. I did export my data and somehow had a two gigabyte export. I didn’t realize I used it that much.

My profile on Instagram was nuked as well. As things keep sprouting the suffix of ”—by Facebook” I can merrily shut down those profiles and accounts. That misbehaving batch of algorithms mischaracterizes me 85% of the time and I get tired of dealing with such messes. The accretions of outright non-sensical weirdness in Facebook’s “Ad Interests” for me get frankly quite disturbing.

Remember, you should take the time to close out logins and accounts you don’t use. Zombie accounts help nobody.
