Why I Don't Use...


Facebook is a mass surveillance engine, as reported by trusted sources. Even if it were not, I don't find any real use of Facebook for me.

Google Maps

  • Google Maps records your location history [1] [2], and I won't use any such map service.
  • Google Maps website and app aren't free software.

I usually avoid using online maps, and if I have to, I use OpenStreetMap.


Several reasons, some listed in my blog under the tag google.


  • It is owned by Facebook, and I don't trust it.
  • It isn't free software.
  • Even if it were trustworthy and free software, I don't find any real use of WhatsApp for me.
