So because of the Facebook debacle and after reading a blog post comparing* various Terms of Service (TOS), I checked out the TOSes of the social media websites I belong to. I left the Indigo Chapters community to last — in fact I didn’t even think about it, being Canadian and aimed at serving authors, [...]
I spread my presence across the bookstore Net and then realised I was overextended. I signed up for Amazon Connect awhile ago.
