Tech expert urges Americans to 'quit Google, Facebook' over NSA surveillance revelations

(NaturalNews) In light of revelations that the federal government's massive spy apparatus has been unleashed on its own citizens, some tech experts are now advising users of social media and other Internet-based sites that have helped Uncle Sam pry into your life to stop using them altogether.

Deleted my Facebook a year ago

Only use Gmail for regular stuff.

No matter what you do, be thoughtful of how you are portraying yourself online. Sometimes we get caught up in the heat of the moment, say passionately-driven things that can be misconstrued and used against you. Might be a good idea to have your most recent views be on par with how you want to represent yourself. Delete any comments that you think may do yourself more harm than good. Sure, those posts are already saved on some moonbase server somewhere but at least you took the initiative to self-edit. We all have the ability to grow and change as well as adapt to our (increasingly insane) environments.

This doesn't mean, "Shut up and don't say anything at all." Just make sure you're not throwing gasoline on the fire.

Agreed

I just learned that adap2k has been banned. This user and I had exchange a "heated" (on his side) exchange regarding a broken link that he posted. I maintained civility, and he downvoted all my comments and upvoted his. He learned something from this, but he was still banned. I'm saddened that I was unable to retrieve him from the precipice.

Still have a Facebook, which I logged on to last week to share the NSA stuff, specifically that Facebook was collaborating.

And FB is up 1.66% today after the news was revealed over the weekend? Must be printed (keystroked) money making it rise. Like the gold/silver plot, the keystroked money will come to disastrous end.

I don't recall if I mentioned this (and my commenting history is too long to look at each -- would be nice to have a search feature), but I really like your signature, especially the second quote -- I had heard that first, and more recently saw a quote that I like better: "You don't have a soul; you are a soul -- you temporarily have a body." It says the same thing, but in fewer words. :) Cheers!!!

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

The greatest lessons we can teach others

is by the example we set by Living the lesson out in our own lives. Some are not at a level of understanding to truly "hear" the lesson, but nevertheless, our interaction with them plants the seed in their minds. That's all we can really do.

Thank you for the appreciation and sharing the quote as well. I have heard it and many other just like it. And I believe it, no, I know it to be true. Our ancient texts say as much and our sciences are proving the same. It's a realization that hits deep within, doesn't it?

Is your quote related to the work of Dr. Masaru Emoto? I know he's referenced those words or ones very similar in his experiments with water.

Have a great evening!

Not necessarily :)

But I resonate with him. I saw "What the Bleep Do We Know" several years ago, and got to know him then. That's one reason my profile picture is the 432/440 Hz comparison.

Agree that it is amazingly deep. Everything I am coming to know is coming together, to make a holistic reality. It's pretty amazing to be alive at this time.

Wishing you and yours well, and be careful on that two-wheeled contraption. :)

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

Amazing time, indeed :)

"WTBDWK" was a great intro "down the rabbit hole" for me. It set a great foundation for what eventually "revealed itself" to me and continues to reveal itself. It doesn't really end, does it? It's ongoing, ever-changing, consciousness-expanding and infinitely abundant.

When I tuned my little plastic-string classical guitar to 432Hz, I almost broke into tears when I began to play because I never really "felt" the music before. It resonated right to my bones. And what was really trippy was that one of my string's tuning knobs had broken off (I'd need a pair of pliers to tune it) it always seemed to go off by just a bit...BUT when I tuned the other strings to 432, that string was already perfectly in tune!! How "synchronistic" of it :)

I love 432

I'm currently teaching myself to sing, using my Android phone and the "gStrings" app, which is for tuning instruments -- of which my voice is (or will be) one. :)

I have used it to tune both my acoustic and electric to the 432 Hz frequencies, and now something more difficult, tuning an apparatus that doesn't quite have tuning pegs. :)

Enjoy!

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.

I cancelled my yahoo account

I use startpage search, the only google I use is for my business e-mail. Haven't used Facebook or any other social media in years.

We are looking at getting PAID encryption email

....now.

I just CANCELLED my TWITTER account, and I deleted my Facebook account a couple years ago.

I know it's expensive, but I really value my privacy more than ever now. We are also going to transition out of our TWO email accounts, including GOOGLE MAIL.

What we need is a NEW INTERNET SEARCH engine that is private, more than ever....now.

Will a High-Tech firm step up to the plate? I would pay for it. Blogging is another issue.

My question is this to Edward Snowden: Can the CIA & FBI get access to our new private email accounts?? Did he answer this question this morning??

I've been thinking about the switch

And now seems the time. I will document what I do, and make a post to make it easier for those in my situation to do so.

My situation: I own a domain, which has an email address I use. I have a Gmail account, which I've configured to get the email from my account.

So, the steps I'll need to take are, I believe:

  1. Turn off Gmail's pull.
  2. Investigate web-based email at my domain provider.
  3. Determine how to extract all my email from Gmail, for continuity (I never delete an email, I like to be able to refer back to previous conversations, as my brain uses faulty organic memory).
  4. Get my email.
  5. Turn on web-based email.
  6. Final step, there are some mailing lists that I signed up with my Gmail account, so I'll need to drop them and (if I still want to be on that mailing list) re-add at the other address.
  7. Done!

Well I suppose there are a few other steps to getting all the way there, like switching search to startpage.com (already did that for new window; need to do it for the address bar search).

I love you. I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you.
