I'd be lying if I said I didn't miss a lot of IRL connectivity or the location of my constructive political discussions (believe it or not) from my decision to # but this makes me glad I did it. Can't wait to read the rest in the book.

sounds ridiculous. though, I never used FB. so it does not make difference.

I'm so glad I decided to # . One of the major reasons was because I figured they would do *exactly* this sort of thing. Shame. On. Them.

When I was using it, years ago, I felt like when in was using it I felt unhappy about the time I spent on it and when I wasn't using it I felt unhappy not seeing what was going on. There wasn't any part that was happy. Maybe that's just me, though.

@smellsofbikes that's the ironic thing for me. I actually had curated my experience to the point where I really enjoyed all the interactions I had with IRL friends, I almost never had interactions with global people because I never posted publicly, and I found specialty groups for my hobbies and political debates that let me have very positive discourse on all those topics. Unfortunately they are a horrible company.

Personal value is important. If it doesn't add up to a net positive after all things are considered (like being a horrible company run by horrible people) then it's time to move on.

The more I read Mindf*cked the angrier I get at myself for feeding the beast for years knowing full well the nefarious stuff as well as the obvious problems of surveillance capitalism was a probable outcome. Meanwhile this is cross posted to Twitter still :( #

Ah I forget about this. Thanks for bringing it back to my attention. #

And the facebook app on the employees', their friends', and their family members' phones can listen in to ensure compliance!

I wonder if freaks who thrive on power and abuse would find prison a deterrent?

Given all the loopholes they've built into the system they'd be released right back into effective wealth. I think being sentenced to an unremarkable lower middle class life without prospects of elevation would be a more suitable deterrent.

I didn't say anything about releasing them. Being jailed permanently effectively means an unremarkable lower middle class life without prospects of elevation.

But let's say we do, in fact, eventually release them. To stick to my 1/3 number, a matching number of additional convictions would need to balance out those released.

Considering the amount of time required to convict a suspect, and a significantly less than 100% conviction rate, we can't be talking "slap on the wrist" sentences. You'd need at least 2-3 decade sentences to maintain a 1/3 jailed fraction.


After seeing the blatantly false content of political ads that Facebook has and will continue to allow on their platform I feel like I not only need to leave again but need to nuke my account altogether #deletefacebook

I deleted mine about 2 years ago. Breast decision I ever made

@Kaeedo I shut mine down after getting serious about the fediverse but never killed it. Honestly the data extraction problem was part of it. It's even worse now.
