We started Breaking Up With Big Tech because we found ourselves frustrated by many of the Big Tech platforms that have become a part of daily life for many people. Many of these companies do not charge subscription fees for their services, but instead make their money through advertising targeted to you. The more data you provide to the platform, the better targeted the ads.
Everything you do online is tracked and used to build an advertising profile about you. These profiles are then sold to the highest bidder. This is the real cost of these services, and we believe that the cost has become too high for us to continue to support these platforms.
It is in that spirit that we bring you Breaking Up With Big Tech. Here we provide technical solutions for people who want to end their abusive relationships with “Big Tech”, and take back control over their data.
Here you can learn how to host your own photo sharing site, similar to Google Photos or Amazon̵’s photo sharing service. Do you need email, or chat services, but don’t like the idea of Big Tech reading your conversations? We can help you with that, too.
Come along with us and build your very own private corner of the Internet where you control the content.
