Stop Scrolling Facebook

This talk appeared during the live stream at WordCamp US 2019 in room 240. It was fantastic to see so many of my friends mentioned as examples of the power of an open web. David Wolfpaw, Bridget Willard, Chris Aldrich, and Chris Wiegman all as examples of the power of independent websites to share their voice beyond the typical social media platforms 😀

Common themes discussed were the proprietary control Facebook and other platforms have on curating our voice and content, how it can be fed or hidden from our audience, friends, co-workers clients without our control.
