Why Everyone Should #deletefacebook


We are being used by Facebook. It is giving out our personal information freely. It is establishing a dangerous precedent under the guise of helping us connect. It facilitates divisive attitudes and runs contrary to the true reason we started using social networks in the beginning -- human interaction.

It's a disease, so #deletefacebook today.

I have started the gradual process of using the platform less and less, by systemically operating a script which will remove my content. And there is much to remove. There are shares and likes. There are lengthy posts I posted to impress people. There are countless WordPress notifications which inform people what I am doing. Actually, I would bet that I use Facebook to stroke my ego more than engage with other people. I would hazard a guess that this also applies to many other users.

cPanel Shared Web Hosting For Beginners

cPanel Shared Web Hosting For Beginners

Lots of people are interested in web hosting.  Who doesn't want to have their own website where they can tell the world about themselves and what they do?  But, on the other hand, who wants to learn how to program in order to do so?  And who wants to run a server in their house and go through all the complicated steps of keeping it up, running, and connected to the internet?

That's where cPanel shared web hosting comes in.  Shared web hosting is when you pay a company a monthly fee to run the server for you while others are doing the same thing.  Since others are also paying to be on the same server, everybody gets to pay less to be there.  That way, you don't have to run your own servers.  This fixes one of the problems with a beginner trying to get into web hosting, but what about the programming part?
