Cleaning up my internet footprints
Let the clean-up begin.
My first deletion was easy enough. A web-service that provided free webpages was going out of business and it advised me to collect my data. --- DONE ---
The next two were services have value but I simply wasn't using them; LinkedIn and Tumblr. LinkedIn had been hacked some time back and Tumblr has only recently admitted that they had been hacked a few months ago. Simply put, I wasn't using them. ---DONE---
How does it feel? Well, I am happy that my accounts have been deleted and that I have a little less cyber clutter in my life. How much more will I prune? Only time will tell. That being said, if you notice some social media links going away on this blog, you know why.
