Link: “We Should Replace Facebook With Personal Websites”

(Vice) Personal websites and email can replace most of what people like about Facebook—namely the urge to post about their lives online.

Facebook isn’t really all that much better or more convenient than having your own website, or sending emails or chats. But for some reason, Facebook (and Instagram) are where we post now.

I don’t think personal websites are for the same purpose. Personal sites like this blog will never be the best place to distribute your thoughts to the biggest readership possible.

A personal site is a Moleskine, not a book.
