"It's an important thread since more and more people seek Internet privacy and don't want their data and lives to be overexposed.
I deleted my Facebook account a few weeks ago. I wonder if they deleted all of the data they have collected or if it says there forever? I have also deleted my other accounts on various social media, and only Instagram is left. It is my business account, bringing me most of my orders. I like this way of using social media, but it does not look right when people start oversharing. I'm ready to dedicate time and money to developing my IG account to get more views from <REDACTED> because it makes it more popular. I get more orders this way. "

I am considering joining Telegram.  How do you like it?  Does it feel intrusive?

Btw, welcome aboard!
