Hi, this is Dragoș, I am the indie developer behind KINN.
For the past few years I’ve been concerned with privacy, use of personal data by big corporations and manipulation on social media apps like Facebook and Instagram.
In 2018, I have made the conscious decision to completely remove most of my social media accounts (except Twitter). However, before actually doing it, I conducted a thorough analysis on my own use of those social media apps and discovered that for Facebook for instance, I was using it as a proxy to get in touch with friends and people I knew after seeing their posts on my timeline (thanks to the unknown algorithms), which might as well have been random for me. Another useful feature was knowing and being reminded about people’s birthdays.
