🔗 Bye Facebook

Ton Zijlstra, writing on his personal blog:

Yet, when you’re having fun in a toxic swamp, you might be having fun, but you’re also still in a toxic swamp.

I think about quitting Facebook at least a couple times a day. I hate their ethics, I hate their design, & I hate their algorithms, among other things. It’s the only place where some of my friends have a presence online. It’s where I’ve been kept in the loop on online chat sessions during this pandemic. It’s how I’ve stayed in the loop on protests happening in my city. Hell, a friend is having his wedding via Facebook’s Rooms feature.

With so much being piled into one place, no wonder it’s hard to leave. It’s always a thought though.

Zuck is a shitbird.
