<nettime> On #deletefacebook in the Netherlands

Dear nettimers,

it’s been a busy week here in NL with the Facebook exodus movement. Numbers of people that left are of course very hard to estimate but I guess it been so far 10-20.000 people who followed the ByeByeFacebook call of the Dutch comedian Arjen Lubach, last Sunday night:

Next Monday night there’s a meeting in De Waag of the Facebook Liberation Army where we will discuss all these issues. The announcements are in Dutch, and so will the gathering be, I suppose. This is a follow-up of the Facebook Farewell Party in the Amsterdam main theatre, in April 2015.

Below there’s a link list that we just compiled. I have been posting daily link lists to the Unlike Us list, which was founded in 2011 by me and Korinna Patelis and is still active. If you like, forward the list list, change it, add others to it.

Best, Geert
