The search engine I use is ixquick.com, now named Start Page. It dubs itself the world�s most private search engine, for what it’s worth, although I think at least it’s images are powered by Google which makes me lose some faith in it.
I don’t use Facebook. I prefer Gab.ai which lacks in workability but makes up for by almost never censoring legal content.
Thanks, Colt. I will definitely give ixquick.com a look.
Just for the record, Srarboy, when I said “replace” I didn’t mean in an existential sense. I just meant are there replacements that a lone, citizen like myself can turn to? Competition, in other words. I realize no one is going to put Facebook or Google out of business, and I don’t really want to (well, maybe just a little :-D). Sorry if my initial post caused confusion.
