Integrating FB

FB is a wonderful platform

Hooray for Facebook, it has a large audience and is controlled by a plutocrat

It has some problems from my perspective

  • It spies on me on and off the platform
  • It sells my information to exploitative people
  • It controls what I can say and how I can say it
  • It tightly controls who can see what I write
  • Shadowbanning, how frustrating
  • FB conversations have a very short life
  • The spammers and the trollers
  • The amplification of hate

There is a dream

We could say we want the Web to reflect a vision of the world where everything is done democratically. To do that, we get computers to talk with each other in such a way as to promote that ideal.

—Tim Berners-Lee

There is a step

I can’t just get rid of FB but there is a way to start to take back control of my own voice

It involves integrating FB with my Blog

I know it sounds dirty and as if it’s just going to enrich FB
Maybe not
If YOU don’t have a blog there might be some answers for you elsewhere

Integrating FB

I can display page feed in my posts and pages

Let users login using their FB IDs

Use a system on my posts to record “likes”


Facebook Comments WordPress plugin.


Maybe I can crosspost , the idea would be to steal my FB friends away
