Why did you make this?
Nowadays, I get all my social media updates using RSS feeds: using newsboat. I block Facebook, Reddit, Twitter, YouTube & other mainstream social media in this blocklist.
I can browse and search articles locally, in pure plain-text. Paired with newsboat macros, I can archive videos with yt-dl, maintain a weekend binge-list or save articles for-later. I don't like recommendation engines when I'm browsing. I want things to be static & not disturb my workflow. I've blocked news sites, streaming sites, e-commerce and sites that have anti-user behaviour — à la tracking, recommendation engines that keep you hooked. Feel free to fork this project & tune it to your needs.
