I just joined Komando Community to find other alternatives for social community and tech advice, etc. since Parler has essentially been closed down. I am trying to decrease my use/reliance on Facebook, Google, even Amazon, etc. I have added a new email address through a paid service, Reagan.com; I now use DuckDuckGo as my search engine. I will be trying other sites as the become known. I dislike the tech industry trying to control what we say or engage in. I will also be more supportive of small businesses and local businesses when I am able.
